Between finding someone to ask and actually inviting them out with you, getting a date to prom can stress a lot of people out. But Joe Moreno didn’t have this problem. Out of his entire school, the teen decided to take his mom to prom because she missed her own to have him.
Vanessa Moreno got pregnant with Joe when she was only 17 years old, so she left high school to devote her time to him. Now, as a senior, he asked her to be his date to prom to thank her for raising him.
He recently tweeted, “My mom had me at the age of 17 she dropped out of high school to focus on giving me her all. Last night I gave her the prom night she never had.”
Joe explained the situation to his school and got special permission to bring her. He said his mom got emotional when he asked her and so did the internet when he posted their photo on Twitter.

@Extremely Jess tweeted, “STOP MY HEART <3 YOU ARE THE SWEETEST.”
