She reveals to her 3-year-old daughter that she was adopted because no one wanted her: “I want you mom!”

Children always know how to surprise and excite us with their purity and simplicity. They have no superstructures and immediately grasp the meaning of what is truly important. Witness the reaction, to say the least touching, of a little girl after learning that her mother had been adopted. While adoption and its meaning might not have been a concept this 3-year-old was fully aware of, her mom’s essential explanation was enough for her to get the gist of it.

Emily Fauver is a mom and influencer who decided to publish a very cute and touching skit between her and her daughter Ella, only 3 years old. The video appears to be taken from one of the home’s security cameras and shows Emily and Ella in the kitchen chatting. Emily is eating a banana and her daughter just asks her “who’s your mommy?”; the woman answers “Mimi”, but the child wants to know more: “Why is Mimi your mother?”. At that moment, the woman explains to her daughter that she is adopted and to the umpteenth “why?” of her daughter, she replies: “Because my mum didn’t want me, so a new mum came and took me in.”

The child was in deep shock that someone ‘didn’t want’ her mum and after a short pause she said, ‘Oh I really want you, I’ll be your mum’. Emily was visibly moved by this response and almost seemed to cry with emotion: “Give me a hug. That’s so sweet. That’s exactly why I had you,” she told her daughter.

The video is so moving that it has attracted more than one and a half million users; Emily also clearly wrote in the caption of the video: “You have been warned… take tissues or the whole box. This child does not know how much she healed my inner child at only three years old. God knew that my heart needed you.” One user commented, “My heart feels pushed to adopt lately and your story makes that desire grow in me.”Another user wanted to share her personal story, very similar to Emily’s: “I too was adopted and when my son asked me what adoption was about the same age as your daughter , he had so much sympathy for me…and gave me all the love I’ve always needed from my birth parents. It’s great that you shared that with us.”
