This isn't exactly a traditional prom date...

It's so much better!

While most teens are searching for the perfect date, this teen already had the best one picked out.

Joe Moreno chose to take his mom as his date to prom.

He explained that his mom gave birth to him at 17, and dropped out of school to take care of him.

Since she never got the chance to go to her own prom, Joe asked his school staff if he could break some rules and bring his mother as his date.

They of course said yes and Joe gave his mother the night she always dreamed of!

Joe realized how many sacrifices his mother made for him and his siblings and explained how special it felt to give her the prom experience that she never had.
