17-year-old Daniel almost didn’t have the opportunity to make those important memories. After asking a few girls to Homecoming at his school and being turned down, it looked like he wasn’t going to attend. Daniel has Down syndrome and has faced a life where he is often stigmatized by other teens and misses out on certain experiences that most teens take for granted. But, Kylie, a girl from Daniel’s class, decided to ask him. The gesture not only made Daniels day and impressed his mother, but gained the attention of a local news station.
“I don’t think of kids that have a disability… I don’t think of them as being different,” Kylie says. “I hope I can make his night fun.”
The Fox5 Surprise Squad showed up and gave the couple a night they would never forget, complete with a Rolls Royce and a red carpet entrance. We can’t think of a more deserving pair of teens! Please like and share this wonderful story of acceptance and kindness, and brighten someone’s day.
