This morning I received a link to this amazing organization. I needed to share it with you all today! (Thank you Illi! I love how you send me random bits of awesomness!!)
I think for the most part, the majority of you can look back and remember your prom night almost perfectly. For the girls, the day consisted of getting our hair done, getting our make up just right and finally getting dressed in the dress that took weeks to find! For that one night, everyone is a princess! Unfortunately, for a lot of teens with special needs, this night never happens. Yes, there are amazing stories of teens who go to schools where their peers have accepted and loved them. They are able to join in on all the glitz and glamor of the night and cherish the memories they are making. But sadly that isn’t the case worldwide. Which is why, Night to Shine is so amazing!
What Is Night to Shine?
Night to Shine is an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. On one night, February 10, 2017, 375 churches, from around the world, hosted Night to Shine for 75,000 honored guests through the support of 150,000 volunteers!

Doesn’t that look like just the best night ever!? Each invite is treated to the royal treatment and through the night, each one will be crowned King or Queen of the Prom 🙂 How amazing that for this special event, each teen is given their chance to shine, the way they were intended to. I would love for Jana to experience something like this one day! Who knows, maybe she’ll even be able to meet her Prince Mikey face-to-face 😉
