Brother Surprises Sister With Special Needs With Homecoming Invitation

A football-playing teenager gave his "best friend" little sister a surprise she will never forget, when he emerged from the crowd at his football game to ask her to homecoming. Freshman Grace Alexander, 15, did not have a date to Dayton Christian School's homecoming and had never been to a school dance, as her special needs have made it difficult for her to make friends, her family said. But during her time in the school in Miamisburg, Ohio, Grace has always been able to rely on the support of her older brother, Luke, 18, who would often upload loving videos to social media of the pair playing together, singing in his car, and enjoying hanging out. On October 18, with the crowd gathered at the school's homecoming game, a group of students who Luke had previously spoken to assembled on the side of the field. The whole school was in on the surprise, he said, and as Grace made her way to the side of the field, four students held up a sign reading "HOCO", for homecoming. Then, from behind them, Luke emerged to give his younger sister a warm embrace. Luke said that because Grace had never had the chance to attend a dance because of her special needs, he wanted to give her that opportunity. The pair spent the evening dancing away and having fun, he said.
