Older Brother Lovingly Escorts Sister to Daddy-Daughter Dance When Their Father Doesn’t Show Up

A mother was heartbroken when her daughter's hopes of being escorted to the father-daughter dance by her dad were shattered. However, she raised her son well, and he stepped up when it was needed the most.


Children depend on their parents, and when they let them down, it can take years before that trust is rebuilt, especially when there is a cycle of disappointments. Sadly, this was the case for a little girl from Covington, Georgia.

Skylar Hamerter dreamed of attending her school's father-daughter dance for months. However, things didn't pan out as she had hoped or expected.

She Longed for Her Father's Presence

Mom Trelysia Hamerter wanted the best for her kids and did everything to support them. Despite her willingness, there were certain things she couldn't do. One of them was filling in the role of a dad.


Trelysia knew her daughter longed to have a present father in her life, but he was absent and let her down by missing the school dance in 2019. But the following year, Skylar believed things would be different, and she told her mother:

"Mommy, I want my dad to come with me to the dance. I don't want grandpa. I want my dad. I want everyone to know I have a dad."

The Mother Cried Uncontrollably

Trelysia had faith that her ex-partner would not let their child down again. But as the time for the dance grew closer and she struggled to reach Skylar's dad, the mother started to worry.


The mom picked a suit for Christian just in case Skylar's dad didn't pitch. Sadly, their worst fears became a reality, and the father was nowhere to be seen on the day of the dance—fortunately, they had a backup plan.

The day before the event, Trelysia cried uncontrollably. She didn't have the heart to tell her daughter that her dad was a no-show again. Thankfully, there was someone else who was willing to fill the shoes of Skylar's father.

The Brother's Sweet Offer


Trelysia's son, Christian, only 11 then, saw his mom crying and immediately wanted to help. He didn't hesitate before offering his services when he heard about their predicament. The mom shared Christian's words which left her in tears:

"If he doesn’t show, mom, I’d like to take Skylar to the dance ... she deserves to know that a man can keep his word and that she’s really special."

The Siblings Attended the Dance Together

The mom picked a suit for Christian just in case Skylar's dad didn't appear. Sadly, their worst fears became a reality, and the father was nowhere to be seen on the day of the dance. Fortunately, they had a backup plan.


Christian looked dapper in his blue outfit with a shiny bow tie, matching Skylar's golden dress perfectly. Photos of the siblings displayed their immense joy, and the big brother's actions meant the world to Skylar.

She went to the dance with someone who valued her, and they had a blast together! Trelysia was proud of her son and told her online friends that she was confident he would be a great husband one day.

The Online Reaction

Christian's noble gesture didn't go unnoticed. Trelysia's post about her son's actions quickly went viral, with thousands of people applauding them. The online community even thanked the youngster for being someone Skylar could depend on:


"Great job Mom! Your son took it upon himself to be there for his little sister. Christian is a hero. God bless y'all."

"Some day she will realize how special it was to have had her brother, who very much loves her, take her than someone who obviously doesn't care. I hope they had a wonderful time!!"

"This story just popped up in my newsfeed. I’m crying. What an awesome big brother. You are raising a wonderful human being, he’s going to be an amazing dad one day."

"Your story is so inspiring. What a wonderful young man. I pray for God's covering over your son who will be a wonderful husband and father one day. It is a blessing that he is there for his sister. Blessings to your family. Great job mom."

Bravo to Christian for being the male figure his sister needed. They made memories that will last a lifetime, and we wish their family the best in the future.
