An Ohio mother is sharing a magical surprise her teenage son planned for his younger sister.

Photographer Christina Angel said her 13-year-old son asked her to get him a Prince Charming costume so that he could do something special for his 5-year-old sister and best friend.

Angel told ABC 7 Chicago her son suffers from depression and his sister has become his biggest cheerleader, so he wanted to thank her with a princess photo shoot.

Angel bought the costume and her son found a pair of black dress shoes at a thrift store. He wanted to get the details perfect, she said, even shining the shoes the old-fashioned way with polish and a rag.

When they were ready, the mother and son surprised the little girl with a brand-new Snow White dress.

The proud mom said her little girl loved every second of her photo shoot with her “favorite boy in the world.” And it shows!

I am still a Muslim

Yes, I don’t wear a hijab. Yes, I wear tight dresses and sometimes short shorts. Yes, I sometimes miss my namaz. Yes, I did not memorize the Quran. But I am still a Muslim. I believe in Allah (swt). I believe in the day of judgement. I believe in junnah and jahannam. I believe in zakah. I try my best to complete my daily prayers but overall I don’t believe that it is the only thing that defines me as a Muslim. My everyday acts and dedication to Allah is what I believe makes me a part of Islam. I make dua everyday. I start my day with bismillah and I end it with alhamdulillah. I stay humble and modest in my actions. I respect my parents. I pray for the unfortunate. I am still a Muslim. I am just as Muslim as you are.

Sonequa is a devastating loss. Sonequa is my sister in so many ways and she’s wise, she’s funny, she’s smart, she’s smart, she’s lively, she’s talented. She’s a real example to everybody. I don’t know even know i’d where to begin with how amazing she has been to work with and to have in my life. We lose her, but it’s such a deeply original and heroic way that just  seems right for someone as astounding like Sasha. I have so many memories of laughing a lot with her and learning from her and getting support and comfort from her. It’s family. That never ends.
