Son invites mother to prom to give her night she never had
Meet Trey Potter. He is an Ohio high school student. He wanted to give to his mother, MelissaRoshan (MelRo) Potter, the experience she never had, so he invited her to prom.
He’s motivation for doing this wonderful gesture for his mom was to show her the apreciation he has for her and for everithing she’s been through in her life.
MelRo Potter had a hard lofe as a child, she grew up living in 23 different foster care homes and when she was 16 years old she ended up pregnant and homeless.
“She never had that experience and she’s risked so much for throughout my life and made so many sacrifices. I thought it would be the right thing to do,” Trey Potter said.
“My mother was raped when she was 13 and I am the product from that rape. And as a result I lived in the foster care system and didn’t hear any positive reinforcements that I was valuable or worthy,” she said.
“When I was pregnant with him well, I heard, ‘Mel because you lived in the foster care system, you’re probably not going to raise a thriving individual. It just doesn’t happen. You can’t give him what you don’t have.’ So seeing who he has become and knowing the sacrifices that have been made and how much I love him and seeing that come to fruition, I’ve proved him wrong,” Potter said.
She managed to change her life and now she is an advocate for foster care children.
“I think it shows her how much I appreciate her cause I really do after all she’s been through and all I’ve been through with her,” Trey Potter said.
