Stranger Helps Mother Of Two Babies On A Plane And Becomes Her Daughter's Best Friend

All of us have experienced those days when all our plans are suddenly crushed, unexpected unpleasant circumstances come up one after another, and the day or even the week is completely ruined.
It was exactly the case for Jessica’s Rudeen on that particular day. One morning, when she planned to visit her mother with her 4-month-old baby and 3-years-old daughter, they had to fly from Missouri to North Carolina. A series of unfortunate circumstances assailed them: a screaming and hitting Carolina and a crying out of hunger baby Alexander were just two of them.
She was expecting that a flight attendant would ask her to leave the plane when a stranger stepped in. He took the crying baby and, later, spent the whole flight with little Caroline. They painted pictures and watched a movie. Todd, so was the name of a stranger, switched his seats on a connecting flight to sit next to Jessica’s daughter.
“Amazingly, we had the same connection in Charlotte to Wilmington, a connection he navigates frequently for work. He helped us get off the plane and led us to the next gate with Caroline in hand. If that wasn’t enough, he changed his seat on the next flight to sit in our row to help us.”
Later on, Todd confessed that he and his wife had been through the same situation with their two boys, and a stranger helped them out.
"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."
It is a perfect example of how one person can act with kindness towards another for no reason but to do good. After Jessica shared the story on the Internet, it immediately drew her subscribers' attention and soon other users’. Todd’s wife, who also had run into the posting, told Jessica that helping people was her husband’s nature for years.
