Adoption is not to be underestimated as family is one of the most important aspects of a person's life. When Cami was just 18-months-old, her biological father left their family. Not long after, Bobby Powell came into the picture and has been in Cami's life ever since the age of three. Bobby's been the only dad Cami's ever known but her last name wasn't his. So, after many years of confusion and questions, her parents filed the paperwork. Cami, your daddy's adopting you!

All the feels this last Christmas as another family plans the adoption surprise. It's Christmas Eve and Stephen Dabney is opening a box from his 18-year-old stepdaughter Makayla. She's sent him on a wild goose chase as he opens a box, within a box, within a box until finally, he gets to an envelope. Stephen, your sweet girl is taking your name. Congratulations!

Sure he's pretty busy writing, producing, directing, and starring in his hit show "After Life" on Netflix, but he finds time for the occasional "bevvy." He's a bit "cheesed-off" about having to postpone some gigs, but if he hadn't, things could have turned out "shambolic." Don't know what any of these terms mean? View Now
