Parents will feel the pain of traveling with little kids. It is certainly the hardest job of all to comfort their kids when they are screaming at the top of their heads. Well, Jessica Rudeen, mother of three-year-old Caroline and four-month-old Alexander, boarded a flight to North Carolina from Arkansas, USA, at first thought she would be kicked out of the plane as her kids were crying aloud but then a man came as an angel to her rescue.
As Jessica’s children began to panic, the mother panics as well and the man sitting next to them took the little girl and distracted her so that the mother can deal with the son. This act of kindness touched the mother’s heart so much that after the flight, she posted a Facebook post thanking Todd, the savior, and hoping to keep in touch.\
In her post, Jessica writes that because she could not feed her four-month-old son before boarding the flight, he began “screaming his head off.” Meanwhile, her daughter began panicking about flying for the first time and also began kicking and screaming. That’s when the passenger reached out and held the baby while Jessica convinced Caroline to wear her seatbelt.
Jessica writes, “During the flight, he colored and watched a movie with Caroline, he engaged in conversation and showed her all the things outside. By the end of the flight, he was Caroline’s best friend. I’m not sure if he caught the kiss she landed on his shoulder while they were looking out the window.”
“This guy, Todd, showed me kindness and compassion that I’ve never known from another person. His wife, he said, had a similar experience when their two boys were young and a stranger showed her the same kindness.”
Her Facebook post earned over 28,000 ‘likes’ and 8000 shares and brought smiles to many. On sharing that she would like to be in contact, Todd’s wife contacted her as a while later Jessica updated her post and shared that she has connected with his wife and they plan to meet up soon.
