Find Out The Heartwarming Reason This Teen Took His Mom To Prom [Video]

A high school student from Ohio gave his mom a gift she never got to experience for herself. Trey Potter says his mom has sacrificed a lot to raise him, so he wanted to thank her the best way he knew how: by asking her to accompany him to prom. “She never had that experience and she’s risked so much for throughout my life and made so many sacrifices. I thought it would be the right thing to do,” Trey Potter told WATE.

Mom Melissa Roshan Potter, who goes by MelRo, grew up in 23 different foster homes. At 16, she ended up pregnant and homeless.

“When I was pregnant with him well, I heard, ‘Mel because you lived in the foster care system, you’re probably not going to raise a thriving individual. It just doesn’t happen. You can’t give him what you don’t have.’ So seeing who he has become and knowing the sacrifices that have been made and how much I love him and seeing that come to fruition, I’ve proved him wrong,” said Potter.

Despite all odds, Potter turned her life around and is now an advocate for foster children.

As promised, here it is!!! My amazing son who I was pregnant with during my own prom time, invited me to be his date as I didn’t get to go. I am so grateful for his selflessness! Dreams do come true! I really am at Prom!!!!! (Love you Trey!) Ps. Why I say, “Prrrrom!!” Smh! lol 😩❤️😘🌞☀️👫💃🏽 (SIDE NOTE:: I left about 30 minutes after arriving so that my son could enjoy his night. Additionally, we had no idea any coverage would happen- a teacher tweeted this to the news without us knowing. We have agreed as a unit to not respond to the hateful comments and to preserve this blessed experience. Thank you to the majority that have been kind) #teenmoms #selfless #prom #thankful #melrosvoice #memories #dreamscometrue #saturdaynight #happiestnight @teenmomtalks #asseenincolumbus #inspirationalposts #momhood #collegebound #blackengineer #testimony #hopedealer #vegasvolt #ardell #verawang #promgear #prom2016 #futureleaders #leader #lovemore #prommakeup #ardell #naturalcurls #teenpregnancy #photooftheday #prommom #mothersday @ouidad
