Young woman stands up to talk at her quinceañera and then THIS happened

A quinceanera celebration in Ontario, Canada became more than just a birthday party for 15-year-old Liyah Imbert when she asked her stepdad, David Butler, to officially adopt her.

David, 35, entered Liyah's life when she was just two years old. Since then, he has been a loving father figure, and ahead of her milestone birthday, Liyah knew exactly what she wanted to ask him.

During her quinceanera speech, Liyah focused everyone's attention on David sitting across the dance floor. Then, she popped the all-important question.
