"It touched people because it was an innocent moment," Livi's dad, Cliff Dorsey, of Terre Haute, Indiana, told "Good Morning America." "Her personality is really like that. She loves Beyonce -- she blasts her music in her room. I wouldn't trade her for anything in the world."

Livi is a junior at South Vegal High School, but accompanied Jawon, a family friend, to his prom at North Vegal.

Jawon's mother Doretha Kimmons, said her son asked Livi to be his date while they were at church.

"He gave her a gift basket with a teddy bear, a big bar of chocolate and roses," Kimmons told "GMA." "He's not very verbal because he has autism. I have a very good friend...she made him a sign that said, 'Will you go to the prom with me?'"

Both Dorsey and Kimmons said they're thrilled that the world is showing their kids so much love.
