Getting left at the altar is the type of experience that we would not wish on our very worst enemies and unfortunately, it is something that happens all too often in our society. People get cold feet and they decide to back out of the agreement that they have made. However, this story offers a very unique twist on the concept of getting left at the altar.
This man didn’t leave his wife to be at the altar. Instead, he decided to profess his love for someone else in the middle of the wedding. While this seem like a moment that is better left not discussed, Jefferson’s decision led to a very touching moment that will have you reaching for the Kleenex in no time at all. This is one of the most adorable moments that we have ever seen.
You see, Jefferson did not stop the wedding to proclaim his love for just any other woman. His wife Jessica is the proud mother of a beautiful little girl named Giovanna and when he stopped the wedding, it was to profess his love for the child who had changed his life for the better. He promised to provide her with the same love and care as he would Jessica.
Once he had said his vows to his wife to be, he focused on the truly important things, such as listing all of the ways that he would make Giovanna’s life better. Once Giovanna gave her new father a hug and a heartfelt thank you, there were no dry eyes left in the house and we have to admit that there wasn’t a dry eye in our house, either.
While you may not speak Portuguese, the message here is a very universal one that we can all certainly relate to with relative ease. This is the sort of powerful moment that will live on forever and we urge you to check out this clip for yourself, so that you can take in this special occasion alongside this happy new family.
If we had it our way, then Jefferson would be received an award for father of the year already. Giovanna is lucky to have a stepfather in her life who is willing to put her needs first and we wish this family a great deal of happiness going forward.
