This past weekend was Father's Day. And while some dads were unwrapping socks and getting breakfast in bed, this 63-year-old dad got the best gift that a father could ever ask for - he got to meet his 40-year-old daughter for the very first time.

The daughter, Jyll Justamond from Colarado, found her dad via Facebook, a search which began after she learned that the people who she thought were her parents were actually her grandparents. According to ABC, her biological mom, who had her at 18, felt that she wasn't old enough to be her mother, so she allowed her stepfather and mother to help raise her as a child.

This story made me feel so happy and warm inside.

A father and daughter united once again, how wonderful! It's a small world after all!
