Madeleine Tarin has the graduation snapshot of a lifetime.
Her mother, Jacqueline, admitted being a teen mom wasn't easy, but that she tried her hardest to make sure Madeleine had everything she needed.
She told Inside Edition, "She knew her upbringing was a little different than some of her friends that had older parents."
Although her mom and dad had their struggles and made sacrifices, they worked hard to give their children the best lives possible, and it paid off.The story is inspiring others in similar situations as well.
It's safe to say Tarin has made her parents proud. The teen will be attending Rider University in New Jersey on an athletic and academic scholarship to play soccer.
