Mother surprises adopted daughter on wedding day with letter she wrote years before

On Brooke Zugg’s wedding day, her mother Sherry Blackledge gave her a very special gift she had been saving for that occasion: a letter, printed on a piece of her own wedding gown, which she had written to Brooke shortly after she and husband Craig adopted her 20 years before.

Today reports

On March 7, as Brooke dressed for her wedding, she realized that everyone had left the room besides her parents and the photographer and videographer. Blackledge handed her a beautifully wrapped present. Brooke opened it and saw her mom’s handwriting on something, but it wasn’t a piece of paper. As her mom explained the letter and how it was printed on a part of the dress, the waterworks flowed. The videographer, The Film Poets, captured the whole exchange.
