In case you are looking for a reason to smile on this Friday, the Daily Mail Online shared a video earlier this week that proves the incredible power of love and family. After raising his stepson as his own and helping care for his step-granddaughter, the two surprise Mr. Watson with the ultimate birthday present: they have both legally changed their surname to his.

The footage shows the little girl giving her grandfather a small pouch and telling him to open it. After he asks if it contains cash, she excitedly responds that “it’s better than money.”
Inside the bag is a dog tag with the new names of his granddaughter and stepson. The girl then explains that she and the young man had a hearing before a judge earlier that day, and they are both now officially Watsons.
“It’s official,” the stepson says. “The judge approved it for both of us.”
Overcome with joy and excitement, the man shares a long embrace with his granddaughter and son, before breaking down in tears.
“Oh my goodness, what a birthday present,” Watson concludes. “That just made my life.”
