Audrey Soape although 11 years old has gone through more suffering in her life than any adult may have gone through. She lost her father and grandfather in 2021.
She felt very sad that she could not go to the dance coming up at her church with her father. But what his mother had prepared was very special.
Audrey was a fan of Virginia native and Philadelphia Eagles defensive back Anthony Harris. Her mother contacted him on Instagram asking him to be her daughter’s companion.
He replied that not only would he come but he would make her feel like a princess. Not only did Anthony fly across the country to surprise Audrey, but he also covered the cost of her dress, shoes, hair, and makeup.
He came and drove her to her keep his word until the end. Throughout the weekend she was preparing for the moment. There were a lot of emotions.
Anthony learned a lot from that 11-year-old girl who had lost so much in such a very short period.
Such a wonderful surprise for an 11-year-old who has suffered the unimaginable. We are glad she was made to feel so special by this true gentleman and big-hearted football player.
I hope they stay in touch and continue to offer support to each other. Tell us your feeling about this story in the comments down below on Facebook.
