CALIFORNIA — Mikki Willis posted a video to Facebook that is flooding the internet with exclamations of acceptance.

In the video, Willis explains that his son was given two birthday presents that were exactly the same. He told his son they would go to the store and exchange one of them for a toy that he didn’t have.

His son chose a Little Mermaid barbie doll.

“Now how do you think a dad feels when his son wants to get this?”

“YEAH!” Willis and his son yelled in approval.

He went on to promise his sons that he will love and accept them no matter what.
