MOTHERPROM

Teen Takes His Mom To Prom After Growing Up Homeless

An Ohio teen recently decided to take his mom to prom and helped share her incredible story of survial in the process. According to WATE reports, the mom had an hard life and could never attend her own prom.

Trey Potter said he wanted to show his mother, MelissaRoshan (MelRo) Potter, how much he admires her after everything she’s been through in her life.

MelRo Potter grew up living in 23 different foster care homes. She ended up pregnant and homeless at 16.

“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,” mother MelRo Potter said.

MelRo was abused in some of the foster homes, but fought through the pain and raised her son alone. She was later discovered as a model and landed several magazine covers.

“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.
