Teenagers take a lot of pride in the homecoming party. They always dress up to their best to impress their dates and dances all night with their friends. On this day, a teenager who has Down syndrome also had got a special memory. He was asked by one of his friends whether he would like to go prom with her.
17-year-old Daniel Rivas was a student at Shadow Ridge High school.
He has always wanted to find a place to fit himself best.He had asked one of his friends for a date for the upcoming homecoming party but was turned down. He was disappointed and did not understand why he could not get close to his friends. But little did he know that something good was looming.
Upon hearing that Daniel was desperately looking for a date, Kylie Fronius decided to give him a dance date. She went to Daniel’s school campus and asked him to join her for a homecoming dance. He became so overwhelmed upon realizing that he finally found what he had been missing. Daniel accepted the offer.
Kylie then dressed up for the event; she knew that she had a new dancing partner. Though Daniel was a disabled boy, she did not run away from him as other friends have always done. She told Fox 5 Surprise Squad that she didn’t think disabled children are different. She clarified that she thinks of them just like any other person but the only difference is their learning methods.
This sentiment helped the teens to book themselves a date with the surprise squad. The squad planned for them an evening out that will remain remarkable day in their memories.
The surprise squad arrived just when Daniel and Kylie were taking pictures; the crew then told them the surprise news. The deal was not a simple one; it included not only rolling up to the dance via black Rolls Royce but also a stopover package on their way.
Daniel, Kylie, and Daniel’s mother took dinner together at an elegant restaurant, Biastro 57.At the restaurant, the group paid absolutely nothing in return.
Daniel’s mother explained that she has been passing by the restaurant several times but has never imagined if she will ever eat in there, leaving his son alone.But she was very much appreciative, that is where she was at the moment. She marked the day memorial in her mind from the start.
Just finding people within the restaurant who made sure that his son’s night was like never before was an awesome feeling.
Both the two still had their date as planned; they were to attend to their dance that Kylie had promised Daniel before all these fortunes came their way.
When dancing time docked, the two had a blast! The night turned out to an extraordinary night in their lives.Together with Daniel’s mother, the surprise squad promised to send them for more retreat. They promised to take them to Disneyland.
Not only this but also surprise of $10,000 scholarship to Daniel for his College courtesy of Then Don Forman, United Nissan owner.
As this was happening, it all began as an innocent call-up of the boy who was abandoned by his friends due to his disability. Kylie’s kind act made all this happen. She too was not left out the surprise list; she was gifted with a Nissan Sentra. The young girl was very grateful for the honor.
That is how simple step by Kylie made them their doors into the world open. Daniel is that person who will never forget the day for the rest of his life.
