Princess for a Night

Princess for a Night

Dating does not come easy while living at the children’s home, so when Terrance asked her to prom, she was doubtful that she would even be able to go. With persistence, Karah worked hard to make this dream come true. After getting the “ok” from her social worker and the staff at MCH, she was well on her way.

As she stood looking into the mirror, she could hardly believe what she saw. There in the reflection was a beautiful, tall, elegant young lady who never imagined that she would be going to the prom. Karah, 17, has lived at the children’s home for three years. She is as sweet as she is pretty, and with her bubbling personality, it is no wonder she found the “perfect date.”

Karah met her prom date through a friend and immediately they hit it off. “He is just so sweet and we have so much in common,” Karah said giggling.

“When I found my dress, I just stood there twirling. I felt like a princess!” Karah said.

“Terrance made me feel so special and beautiful. He was a true gentleman. His parents treated me like I was family,” Karah said. “I would like to thank my social worker, Mr. Mike and Mr. Devon for allowing me the opportunity to go to prom. I was not able to attend my own school’s prom, so I just assumed that I would never get to go. Terrance and his parents went out of their way to make sure that I had the best night ever. It was truly a once in a lifetime experience.”
