A 7-year-old hosts prom for his babysitter due to hers being canceled


Prom was cancelled due to coronavirus for one individual so the boy she babysits threw one for her. Rachel Chapman was surprised with a dinner and dance from 7-year-old Curtis Rogers.

"I was so surprised," Rachel told "Good Morning America." "I had no idea he was going to go all out. It was very thoughtful and sweet.”

Rachel for over a year has been babysitting Curtis part-time after school. She picks him up, takes him to the playground, piano lessons and helps him with his homework.

"She has become apart of our family ... he absolutely adores her," Curtis' mom, Elissa Rogers, told "GMA." "She's a just great person with good heart so it's been a blessing to have her helping us out with Curtis.”

When the pandemic hit her prom was cancelled and she even had to stop babysitting Curtis for two months.

In caring for his babysitter Curtis dressed in a suit and picked out a menu for dinner.

"It was a sweet thing for him to do," Rachel's mom, Becky Chapman, told "GMA." "They have a special relationship."
