An Ohio boy gave his mother the gift of her life this week, but it wasn't for Mother's Day. 

Trey Potter, a Columbus area student, surprised his mother by taking her to prom.

According to Columbus affiliate WCMH, Trey Potter asked his mom MelissaRoshan (MelRo) to prom because he knew she wasn't able to go when she was a teenager. 

By age 16, she was pregnant and homeless, WCMH reports.

So Trey decided to give her an opportunity she never thought she'd have again. 

“She never had that experience and she’s risked so much for throughout my life and made so many sacrifices I thought it would be the right thing to do,” Trey said.
