Throughout her school years, Sophia Wilcox would read the hand-written motivational post-it notes on her door from her stepdad Brian Sandusky.
It became tradition between them but Brian had no idea Sophia was saving every single one.
After finishing school, she framed them all and gave them back to the 46-year-old for Father’s Day last weekend, reducing him to tears.
Sophia’s tweet sharing the sweet moment went viral racking up more than half a million likes and 112,000 comments and likes.
Sophia, from Maryland, US, said: ‘He was overwhelmed with emotion. He had no idea I even kept the notes so when he realised what the gift was, it threw him for a second.
‘I kept all of the notes because I was going through a hard time when he left them and I valued how important the notes made me feel.
‘They reminded me that I was loved and that my stepdad cared for me so much.
‘I think at that moment he had a deep realisation of the profound impact he has had in my life.’

Sophia said: ‘Pretty much everyone who has seen the video has said it has brought them to tears.
‘People have been so moved by this video and I hope it emphasises the importance of kindness.
