Lourdes Medrano is her dad’s little princess, and when she was heading off to her senior year prom in California, he was naturally proud as punch.


However, the industrious father couldn’t see his daughter off to the dance as he had to work.



Disappointed that he wouldn’t be able to spend the precious moment with his girl, Lourdes decided to take matters into her own hands.


The next day, the young girl dressed up in her ball gown and patiently waited for her dad Miguel, surprising him in the best way possible.



Lourdes posed for several snaps with her Dad, so that he would always have the special memories of his little girl heading off to senior prom. 


And as usual, users fell in love with the sweet gesture just as quickly as we did:




The absolute SWEETEST gesture, we're so impressed with Lourdes compassion.
