Mother who missed her own prom finally goes with her son

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WKOW) -- A North Carolina mom who never got to experience prom, finally had her chance.

Shontelle Howard-Moss didn’t get to experience her high school prom as a teenager, because she was pregnant with her son Rayquan.

She finally lived out her prom moment Saturday evening, when her son took her to his prom.

Rayquan said his mother wanted to make sure her sons didn’t miss out on their own prom experiences.

So, even though his mother insisted he take a date, Rayquan only wanted to take her. He said he wanted his mother to enjoy the special moments of getting dressed up, taking pictures and dancing.

“It's always been on my heart,” Rayquan said. “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."

Howard-Moss never thought she’d get this special opportunity, but she found that perfect date.

"Words cannot even explain this moment,” Howard-Moss said. “It's been 18-20 years and I never thought I'd get this moment but he wanted me to have a high school prom."
