18-year-old Morgan couldn’t walk for 10 months — but she surprised her prom date with her first steps, and made the entire internet emotional.
Morgan spent 10 months unable to use her “own two legs,” due to an unspecified medical issue. But she regained her mobility in time for prom and was able to surprise her date Tarik, who she called one of her “best supporters.” In response to her steps, Tarik was clearly elated and proud of what she had achieved. She reportedly won prom queen as well, adding even more excitement to her big night.
“I wasn’t born with this. This happened almost a year ago. I believe God is real and is very much alive,” she tweeted on April 28, 2018. “I know I could not have done this without believing in my faith.”
Friend and strangers alike also helped celebrate her achievement via encouragement on Twitter:
