“I want you to be safe, and to try your hardest, and to be a good person,” Emily read as Gage stands in front of his father at Quincy Cellars in Ripley, New York.
As Emily continues, Gage begins to cry and wraps his arms around his stepmom’s legs. "Don't cry," she says, fighting back tears herself.
"I know that you and I will butt heads, but—” Emily says before she’s interrupted by Gage’s adorable sobs. “Buddy, it’s okay,” Gage’s father says, pulling his son close for a hug.
“You have helped make me into the woman that I am today, and I may not have given you the gift of life, but life surely gave me the gift of you,” Emily says before giving Gage a hug and a kiss.
After the ceremony, Joshua says that people went up to Gage to tell him what a great job he did. “We were telling him, ‘You did awesome,’ and our family and friends were saying that and told him he made it even better," he told ABC News.
