Video of an 11-year-old Ohio boy's heartwarming reaction to finding out he would be getting a family for Christmas has now been viewed millions of times on Twitter.

In the now viral video, Carter Wyles is seen opening his final Christmas gift and finding a framed photo of his aunt, uncle and his cousins, as well as a note inside.

"This is our most recent picture of our family," Carter said, reading the note out loud. "All of us would love for you to be in the next picture and to be part of our family... would you like to be a Kiphart and be our son and brother?"

Carter, surrounded by his family, started to cry, and his aunt came over to give him a big hug.

"What do you think, buddy? We're going to adopt you, Carter," says someone off-camera.
