This Heart Warming Story Has So Much Inspiration.
“I’m going to the prom with Megan!”
Alesia Fitting-Urban sent me this story about her son.
It totally made my day.
You can't help but smile when you read the story.
Here’s what she wrote:
This is my son Adam.
He's a junior at College Park HS.
He has cerebral palsy, seizures and is developmentally delayed.
Last night was his junior prom!
His amazing date Megen is a TA in his class and has known him since junior high.
He adores her!
She is such a special girl.
I can't say enough!
With help from his teacher, he purchased roses and the balloons that said “PROM?”
The next day when Megan came to class, Adam and his classmates were waiting and she said yes!
His school voted him best promposal.
They also refunded his ticket money for the prom.
I've been crying tears of joy for the last week!
College Park HS really does have some caring kids and I so appreciate how they include and cheer my son on!
Words can't express my gratitude!

Thank you so much for sharing, Ellen!  This was shared by our local newscaster, Frank Somerville (KTVU Ch2, SF Bay Area).  This is exactly what I wrote to Frank:  "Adam is my nephew. He really is such a love. He's always smiling and happy... even when he's not, he has a smile on his face. We have always tried to do our best to include him in all we do (family vacations, hikes, sports, etc), we have never made him feel he is any different or can't do something or is any different from any of his peers. He doesn't realize how special he truly is. He has been an amazing inspiration and a little love bug his entire life.

You just can't help but smile when he greets you. Thanks to Megan for being who she is and a big part of Adam's life."

This is sooooooo cool. I am so impressed by how well the entire student body at College Park High School treats Adam. His Prom date, Megan, is a very special , one of a kind young lady. She has a wonderful heart and a warm personality. Special thanks to her. I would also like to mention how great his teachers and aides have been with him through the years. They are truly phenomenal and special people. Words cannot adequately express how wonderful this makes me feel. Adam works very hard each and every day of his life just to do the things that most of us do without even thinking about them. He is truly an inspiration to all of us. And yes he is probably the number 1 WWE fan in the world and John Cena is his favorite wrestler. Thank you to everyone who made this all possible. You are awesome!!
