Touching Mother-Son Wedding Dance Reminds Us What It’s All About

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 10/09/15

The love of a son for his mother suffering from ALS shines in this memorable moment

This home video, shot at a wedding reception of a young couple, shows the sweetness and care of a son — the groom — for his mother, who suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects brain nerve cells and the spinal cord.

What’s behind a good son, though, is often a mom, who has taught and modeled sacrificial love, empathy, tenderness, and strength. That’s what we might imagine this mother has instilled in her son and now gets to experience it being returned to her by the man she has raised on his very special day.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. – Proverbs 22:6
