Teen takes mom to prom because she missed her own

When Nassir Nbl asked a very special lady to be his date for senior prom, she could barely believe it.

“I would be honored!!” his mother Fatima recalls of her 18-year-old son’s heartfelt invitation, Yahoo Lifestyle reports.

Eighteen years ago, the single mother of two from Chester, Penn., missed the opportunity to attend her own high school prom, as she was caring for Nassir, a toddler at the time.

“You told me that you didn’t go to your senior prom because you had me six months prior, and you’d rather spend your money on your first apartment,” Nassir remembers of a deep conversation he had with his mom before his eighth-grade formal. When offered the chance to make her dream come true, he was sure to take it.
