NFL Player Makes Autistic Girl’s Dream Come True
Prom is always a magical experience for high school students, but for one Houston teenager, this prom was a dream come true.
The Today Show recently did a feature on Taylor Kirkland, an 18-year-old senior with autism, who was given a memory to last a lifetime when NFL Super Bowl champion and Seattle Seahawks running back Christine Michael agreed to take her to the prom.
When a family member approached Michael about taking Kirkland, who was also crowned prom queen, to the prom, Michael told The Today Show, "I said yes without the shadow of a doubt. She looks beautiful."
