Janelle Rice ensured there wasn't a dry eye online after she shared a video on Facebook of her 11-year-old son, Landon, opening an adoption certificate.

Landon wanted to be adopted by his father, Daniel, who has been married to Landon’s mother for 10 years, so he could have the same last name.

Daniel began the process in secret, and the certificate arrived just in time for Landon to open it on Christmas Day.

The certificate was mounted in a frame, and had a heartwarming phrase written on the bottom, reading: "It's not flesh and blood, but the heart that makes us father and son."

Watch the video below, which has been shared over 322,000 times since it was posted on Sunday.
