Few things are quite as difficult as traveling with little ones over the holiday season. Becca Kinsey is all too familiar with this experience after she decided to fly solo with her 2-year-old and 5-year-old in tow last week.
With one screaming and the other totally worn out, Becca was ready for the tears to start rolling and strange stares to come her way.
Instead, on her trip from security to the plane, she was met with amazing compassion from three different women who knew EXACTLY what she was going through.
Instead of judging and staring, they offered a helping hand in the most beautiful way, and the awesome story of their selflessness has since gone viral.
After Becca shared her story on Facebook, it amassed over 850,000 likes and 120,000 shares from people whose hearts were warmed by the incredible chain of events.
Since it’s gained so much Internet-wide popularity, Becca has decided to use her story to spread more good through raising donations for Kidd’s Kids, an organization that takes children with life-threatening and life-altering conditions on a 5-day trip to Disney World.
Read Becca’s inspiring Facebook post, and be sure to let your friends know about it as well!
‘So I thought it was a good idea to fly by myself with a 2 year old and a 5 year old ?. We were standing in line in security, on the verge of tears because Wyatt was screaming and James was exhausted. Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says ‘here, jump in front of me! I know how it is!’ Wyatt fell asleep and I was trying to carry everyone’s carry-on when another mom jumps out of her place in line and says ‘hand me everything, I’ve got it’. When I said thank you to both of them they said ‘don’t you worry, we’re going to make sure you get on that flight.’ The second woman takes evvvverything and helps me get it through security and, on top of all that, she grabs all of it and walks us to the gate to make sure we get on the flight. To top it all off, Wyatt starts to scream at take off before he finally falls back to sleep. After about 45 min, this angel ?? comes to the back and says ‘you look like you need a break’ and holds Wyatt for the rest of the flight AND walks him all the way to baggage claim, hands him to [B]lake, hugs me and says ‘Merry Christmas!!’
