Dylan’s mother, Victoria, said: “They have become very close over the last 18 months and we all started to realise there was a romance going on. “Then in March Dylan asked me if he could take Amelie out on a date. They wanted to go to Pizza Express together, just the two of them. It was a lovely idea.”
A teenage couple with Down’s syndrome have been crowned king and queen of their school prom, following a vote by fellow pupils. Dylan Hughes and Amelie Barker, both 16 from Monmouth, were “really chuffed” https://t.co/4RKrbSgn6N— Elijah’s Hope (@ElijahsHopeCIC) July 17, 2019
Love blossomsFrom there, things continued to blossom for the sweethearts. They spent evenings and weekends together, taking trips to the movies, amongst other things. “It’s got quite serious and they are declaring everlasting love for each other,” Victoria continued. “There was only ever going to be one girl that Dylan wanted to take to the prom. “Their school friends think it’s very sweet and we knew they had planned a surprise at the prom. “The evening was in full swing when we had a call to say Dylan and Amelie had been voted prom king and queen. They both thought it was fabulous.”
A heartwarming voteWhat a fantastic and heartwarming gesture to make by the other kids at the school. It certainly looks like Dylan and Amelie had a wonderful time at their prom!
