You see, Daniel has Down syndrome and has felt the effects of being stigmatized by his peers.
That’s when a 10th grader named Kylie stepped up and asked Daniel to the dance herself. “I don’t think of kids that have a disability… I don’t think of them as being different,” Kylie says. “I hope I can make his night fun.”
Daniel’s mom Tonya was stunned beyond belief by Kylie’s incredible gesture. “It’s not about that Daniel has a disability. It’s Kylie didn’t see any disability. That is what your heart wants as a mom.”
The team at the FOX5 Surprise Squad was also impressed by Kylie’s sweet and simple act of kindness. So, they decided to show up before the homecoming dance to deliver a night of surprises no one could have imagined.
From being driven to the dance in a shiny Rolls Royce and a red carpet entrance, Daniel ended up breaking down in tears of joy before the night was over.
