Her adoption papers are a little girl's best present ever


Hailey was enjoying an outdoor party with her family and friends when she started to get suspicious that something strange was going on.

Hailey, 10, was led by her stepmother to the center of the yard and sat on a chair. Then her stepmother gave her a bag full of gifts.

The little girl asked her stepmother why she was getting so much attention and was told it was her birthday.

What followed was captured on video and has garnered over a million views on Youtube.

Lots of lovely presents for the "birthday" girl!

Hayley's stepmom, Bridgette, started giving her her "birthday" gifts. A bouquet of colorful balloons, then a cute stuffed animal.

Then, Bridgette gave Hailey a necklace, which read, “My daughter holds my heart.” At the bottom of the gift bag was a certificate, which Briggette asked Hailey to read out loud.
