This Mom Is Searching For The Couple Who Held Her Baby On A Long Flight, Wait Til You See Why

Published

on

Being a parent and taking your children out in public on any occasion can be something of an endurance trial. From the awkward, nosy comments to the burning, judging eyes on you if a missed nap leads to a meltdown at the checkout, it’s enough to drive a mom or dad to the hermit life.

When strangers take a moment to offer a little bit of grace, however, a parent can be edified and encouraged to carry on with their mission of raising up the next generation.

Let’s take this conversation to the airport. Air travel is already an extremely stressful situation for many people on tight schedules or those who are headed to a less-than-pleasant destination, and the sights, sounds, and smells of a baby can add to the displeasure.

Trending: Actor’s Hate Hoax Planned After Previous Propaganda Effort Was Panned

For Jessica Knapp, bringing her 1-year-old boy on a flight was an experience she dreaded, but couldn’t avoid.

“Yesterday we were flying home, and I was that person on the plane with a 1-year-old cranky baby,” Knapp wrote in a heartfelt Facebook post explaining the incident. “Ya know, the one you NEVER want to be seated next to? Yeah, hi there.”

“These past 3 weeks were the most stressful time,” she continued. “I was NOT looking forward to flying with a one-year-old again, while five months pregnant, completely alone.”

What could have been a miserable flight for everyone onboard quickly became a beautiful exhibit of the power of kindness.

“But before we even took off, my son was asleep in your arms,” Knapp wrote, directing her words to a pair of complete strangers who saved the day. “A complete stranger’s arms.”

“When he crawled over me while everyone was still boarding to look out the window,” Knapp said, explaining that her son is usually not fond of strangers, “you didn’t hesitate to show him all the lights outside, you made him laugh, you made him feel so safe in your arm that he fell asleep!”

“I can’t begin to thank you for giving me that ‘break’ that moms always need but never ask for,” Knapp added, highlighting the fun discussion she had with the couple as her little one slept in their arms.

“You made the most dreaded flight become one memory that will last a lifetime,” she concluded. “I didn’t catch your last name, and I really would like to say thank you for restoring my faith in humanity just when we needed it most.”

The couple, who introduced themselves only as Kevin and Lisa from Buffalo, New York, did something incredibly powerful that day. They didn’t just entertain a wriggly toddler.

They bolstered a mom’s confidence. A confident mom raises a confident child. A confident child becomes a confident adult. A confident adult can change the world.

Who knows, maybe Knapp’s little boy may grow up to find himself on an airplane someday, seated next to a young mom with a squirmy little kid. If he does, he’ll know just what to do.

With a big grin on his face, he slowly unzips his shirt, revealing a blue shirt. The family squeals with excitement and then explode in happy hysterics to see his little prank: although the shirt is blue, the writing reads: “It’s a girl!”

Their excitement and tears, which likely would have been just as blissful if it had been a boy, just warm your heart. There is just nothing quite like a brand new baby, and especially when there are so many people around to celebrate the good news.

Love it!

Teacher Shocked to See 7-Year-Old Student Riding Bike on the Highway. Then She Found Out Where He Was Going.

If you spend a lot of time as the sole caretaker for small children, it has likely occurred to you more than once what your children would do if you for one reason or another became incapacitated.

Would they know how to call 911? Would they know how to find a neighbor to come help? Or the most dreadful question of all…could they end up in harm’s way somehow themselves?

A little boy in South Carolina is being praised after his bold actions when he came home to discover his father in a diabetic shock. However, he put himself in a rather dangerous situation in order to try to find his father help.

Yahoo News reports:

Cameron Simoncic told his local TV station WSPA that he had returned home from a day of second grade on Wednesday when he found his father on the kitchen floor, unconscious from diabetic shock, and knew that he needed to take immediate action.

“My dad has diabetes,” the second-grader told the local Carolina outlet, “and whenever he has these episodes and whenever it happens, his brain can’t function.”

Cameron went to dial 911 on his father’s phone, but said he was locked out of his dad’s cell. And when the little boy went over to his neighbors’ houses, nobody was home.

“So I got on my bike and tried to ride to my grandma’s,” Cameron explained.

As he was dodging cars on the 5-mile ride, his first-grade teacher, Keller Sutherland, hadn’t recognized the familiar face before deciding that she needed to pull over.

“I just told my husband, I said, ‘There’s a small child on his bicycle riding down the road. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I feel like I need to just turn around and see what’s going on,’” Sutherland told WSPA.

To her surprise, the little boy was her former first-grade student. Cameron quickly told the teacher what was happening at home and Sutherland helped him remain calm, while another two men who pulled over called 911.

Sutherland says she has no doubt she was placed in her student’s path at just the right time, and thank God she was!

“There’s no doubt that God placed me where he did when he needed me,” she said.

Amen to that—what a blessing, and bless this sweet boy for being so brave!
