“Words fail me when it comes to expressing how I feel right now. As a mother, that’s what your heart desires.”
It wasn’t long before the heartwarming story of a young man with Down syndrome who was turned down by a girl he had invited to be his date for homecoming reached the FOX5 Surprise Squad. They decided they would do everything in their power to make this boy’s prom the most memorable day of his life.
When Daniel Rivas, 17, realized that he would have to attend his prom without a date, something extraordinary occurred.
Kyle Fronius approached him with a proposal to be her partner for the evening. He accepted without hesitation. A lovely young lady with a warm heart who never considered Daniel a person who was challenged, she is named Rachel. According to her, students such as him are no different from the rest; they are ordinary people who learn differently. This young lady is distinguished by her unique way of perceiving the world.
Daniel’s mother, Tonya, was also touched by the thoughtfulness of Daniel’s son. I could not believe everything Kylie did for her son. The fact that someone out there didn’t see any signs of disability in her son made Tonya feel better about the situation.
The Fox5 Surprise Squad could begin planning the surprises for Daniel and Kylie as soon as they had the complete story. There is no doubt that what they prepared for the teenagers will be something they will recall for the rest of their lives. They had earned every one of the gifts they were about to receive; that much was certain.
In her conversation with the young teens, Monika Jackson expressed her gratitude for how their story had touched the hearts of so many. First and foremost among the many surprises was a massive Rolls Royce, which would transport the couple in style to the dance.
They did, however, stop at Bistro 57 for a special treat before heading back to the house. Although Tonya had passed by that location numerous times before, she had never taken the time or had the financial means to go inside. “I was overwhelmed,” she says.
A red carpet greeted them as they approached the location where the party would be held. They were amazed that such an amenity had been provided. These young people felt like celebrities, and their joy could be seen on their faces. The atmosphere was truly magical on this occasion.
However, it was only the beginning of an incredible journey ahead of us. During this time, they were informed that they had both been awarded a complimentary trip to Disneyland.
It was still a mystery what the most incredible surprise would be. It has been viewed more than 4.8 million times since the story of these teenagers was uploaded to the Fox YouTube channel.
We can learn from this story that we should always treat everyone with respect because we are all human beings, and no one should be considered superior to others. As a result, we learn that even a small act of kindness can significantly impact and even change people’s lives.
