When Lauren Hernandez was just 1 year old, she met Joe Iosco. She may not remember it, but this day was a defining moment in her life.
As she grew older, Joe, her mother’s long-term boyfriend, was always there for her. He acted like the best father that anyone could ever ask for. He supported her, loved her, and treated her exactly as he treats his own biological daughters.
That was because Joe didn’t feel like he was only acting like a father. He considered Lauren to be his very own child.
Every family is different, and we all go through different obstacles. Lauren’s biological father may not have been there for her while she grew up, but she, by no means, grew up without a dad in her life.
At 18 years old, Lauren graduated high school. At her graduation party, she knew exactly what gift she wanted. Joe had no idea what was coming…
Watch this incredibly touching video below to see what Lauren gave him!
This is the greatest gift that either of them could ever have asked for on this day.
