When a teen from Utah found out a girl with special needs was left without a prom date, he knew he was destined to help.
17-year-old, Carson Preece, offered to accompany Isabelle, who goes by Izzie, to her prom when her original date cancelled due to illness.
“My sweet daughter Isabelle is 16 and wheelchair bound, Izzie’s mom, Syndi Knowlton, shared on Facebook. “We have been talking about prom and her date can’t go now. Are there any young men that might want to attend the special needs prom with this gorgeous girl??”
Luckily Carson’s mom, Trina Huff Preece, saw the post and shared it with her son – it was an immediate yes.
Carson’s mom then took to Facebook to write about the sweet moment.
“THIS BOY! A couple weeks ago, I was teary, Carson came in and asked what was wrong. I read him a Facebook post of a mother of a 17-year-old, special needs girl, looking for a date for her daughter to go to her special needs school prom. He said, “Mom, I will do it!”.
And so he did! We went the day before her prom to decorate her room, and let Izzie meet Carson. Then, he accompanied her to prom, where she was crowned Duchess. Afterwards, he sat in her room for over an hour and watched cartoons with her! SO TENDER, this boy!
Izzie is non-verbal, wheelchair bound, on a feeding tube and mostly uncommunicative. However, there were a few times when her eyes met Carson’s and she lit up like the 4th of July… and, well, so did he! Just a warm and fuzzy story about a boy I am blessed to call son!” (credit: Trina Huff Preece). Follow @majicallynews for more good news stories.
