Mother's Day is just a few days away, and it's going to be hard for Rayquan Howard to top the gift he already gave his mom last weekend.
The high school senior in Charlotte, North Carolina, gave his mom something she never got to have – a prom.
Shontelle Howard-Moss had to miss her senior prom because she was pregnant with her son. So, her son decided to pay her back by taking her to his prom.
Rayquan says at first his mother insisted that he take one of his classmates, but he said he had already made up his mind. He says, "It’s always been on my heart. I wanted to make it special. She didn’t get to go to her prom, so I made it a priority to take her to my prom."
It was a special night for his mom. Afterwards she said, "Words cannot even explain this moment. It’s been 18 to 20 years and I never thought I’d get this moment but he wanted me to have a high school prom."
