Junior Mock’s Prom

You guys, I think I can safely say that Junior Mock had a totally kickass time at his prom. 🙂

His school is closing next month, which really sucks because this means that this was his first and last prom. It’s the only prom for special needs kids, and so kids from other schools come to it, and now – it doesn’t appear that they will have anywhere to go in the future. Huge bummer.

ANYWAY, Junior Mock’s bus driver Donna made him a corsage, and Junior Mock’s caregiver J bought him his outfit, including the first tie he’s ever worn, and she and her mom were giving him a shower when I got home from work to get him all ready. Once we had him dressed, he just looked so completely handsome I could hardly stand it.  Here he is posing with J, his best friend in the whole wide world:

He’s only 13, but he’s a total stud.  I mean, let’s face it.  J is uber-hot. 🙂

Here he is with his brother:

The school did a great job with set-up.  The gym was decorated in a Hollywood theme, and there was a red carpet along the hallway, and each kid got to have their name on a star which was then placed along the red carpet, like the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.  Here’s Junior and Mini at the end of it:

Once we got inside, and the music was blaring and there were people everywhere who FLOCKED to see Junior Mock, he was in total heaven.  Look at the pure joy:

Mini-mock tuckered out pretty quickly, so he and I along with my mom headed home early and let Junior stay at his prom with J and her mom.  The moment Junior got home, I put him to bed and he was OUT.  He had such a good time. 🙂

And I know how you guys love his smile, because really – who doesn’t?  So here’s another pic just to show it off one more time:

Is he not the most handsome boy EVER???

    Mock, Thank you so much for sharing your precious son with us! It takes a brave person to open up their world to ‘strangers’ like us, and it warms my heart to see his smile!! So glad he had fun at his prom. I hope that another school opens up so he can rock out again!

    What a fantastic way to end my week! If only JMock knew the depth, and heart of his ‘fan club’. You can’t fake a smile like that. He’s beautiful.

    Oh my goodness! I’m just gushing tears of joy for him and for you, Mock! His smile could light up an entire city!!! What a wonderful night that school gave him!!

    How terrible that it won’t stay open another year. Is that due to the country wide budget cuts in education? We are facing massive cuts here, which means fewer personnel, less pay, fewer hours for aides (which I am) and that means less help for the teachers and students.

    I forgot to mention that it looks like Jr Mock’s surgery did well loosening up his tight arms and legs. He looks so relaxed and comfortable now! Doesn’t that make those painful times worth it? He must be such a joy to you all!
