This Teen's Family Re-Created Her Mom's Graduation Photo And It'll Give You All The Feels

"Yeah that's right, we made it TOGETHER."

Posted on June 5, 2017, at 5:04 a.m. ET

For her high school graduation, 18-year-old Madeleine Tarin and her parents decided to re-create a photo of them taken at her mom's own graduation in 2000.

"It's one of my favorite photos ever since I was little," Tarin, who graduated from Chino Hills High School in California, told BuzzFeed News. "I thought it was unique and it represented my life in a nutshell."

"My mom and dad got together when my mom was in her freshman year of high school," Tarin said. "My mom was pregnant at 15 but had me when she was 16."

She said that her parents then stayed in high school, and her dad worked to support them, with the help of her "amazing grandparents."

Her parents got married when they were 23 and 25, saved and bought their own house, and waited to have two other kids, Tarin said.

Tarin will be attending Rider University in New Jersey on an athletic and academic scholarship to play Division 1 soccer in the fall.

She said this would not have been possible if her parents hadn't put her – and later her two younger sisters – in club soccer, which was a "big expense for the family."

"My parents are very successful now," Tarin said. "They did everything right in my eyes."

"At first, I just wanted to show my friends and followers I had a story that a lot of people didn't really know about me and my main motive to why I've strived so hard to be successful in high school and will continue to strive in college," she said.

Her tweet has since been retweeted more than 75,000 times.

"The picture to me symbolized my family's accomplishments, and that my parents beat the statistics," she said.

It moved people to tears.

People are seriously touched.

"This whole year, I've been waiting to take this photo," Tarin said. "And when I posted it and saw how much people had been inspired by, it gave me and my parents even more of a sense of accomplishment."
