A father who works three different jobs wasn’t about to let his daughter’s special eighth grade dance not be perfect.
Apparently, he previously told his young one that he wouldn’t be able to afford the dress she really wanted to wear to the special occasion. That all changed though when she showed up to one of the jobs her dad works at.
Video that’s now going viral on social media shows the dad bringing over a dress bag to his daughter. When he opens it up and she realizes it’s the dress she really wanted, she goes into shock, stands up, and hugs her dad for a while.
First, grab a tissue. Then watch this dad, who works three jobs, surprise his daughter with her dream dress for the 8th grade school dance after telling her he couldn't afford it.

The moment shows the power of the bond between black daughters and their fathers. What a touching moment!
Of course, social media reacted and their cheeks are as wet as ours! See what they had to say below.
