A lady was not prepared at all when she realized that her nephew suddenly crawled on a stranger’s lap in the middle of a high school football game. She was not even more unprepared for what happened next.
In a viral Facebook post, Star shared the heartwarming interaction her nephew Isaiah had with a stranger who sat a few rows above them.
According to Star, Little Isaiah made a new friend during the football game with a lady but she did not expect that the lady would treat Isaiah like her own child.
“I don’t know who this lady is, but if you know her, tell her she’s awesome. Isaiah walked up to this lady at our last home game two weeks ago. He sat on her lap and they were talking like they knew each other. It lasted no more than 20 mins,” she wrote.
“However, she left right after halftime to meet up with her little girl. Fast forward to tonight… not long after we sat down at the game Isaiah spotted her. She waved at him and he made his way up to her. I thought their interaction would be the same as last time but I was wrong…”
Star added that the two looked more like a mother-son duo rather than strangers after she witnessed what happened next.
“Isaiah walked right up to her smiling, crawled in her lap and laid his head down on her shoulder. She welcomed him with open arms. This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like she had given birth to him.”
“It was the sweetest! We asked her if she wanted us to get him but she kept telling us she (and he) was fine!”
Star continued that the lady and her nephew had never met before but their lovely interaction just melted her heart and apparently, everyone’s as well.
“Isaiah and this lady have NEVER met before other than those 20 mins at a game 2 weeks ago. I told her tonight that I am so sorry and I don’t know why he keeps bothering her. She replied he’s no bother and to not say that again. She said he was her new friend. She then went on to say she only has one child who is 15, and moments like this are priceless!”
She further added that the reason why she posted the story was to remind everyone that different skin colors are not a reason worth to fight between each other.
“With all of the racial tension that’s going on, I’m glad to see the pictures like these because it goes to show color does not matter to a lot of people. It really doesn’t!”
“Arguing over stuff as such makes us miss the simple pleasures in life. I hate I didn’t get her name but I will next game because I’m sure Isaiah will make his way back to her. I love her and don’t know her!”
Later, her post quickly garnered everyone’s attention and in just a few days, she received 1 million likes and more than 300,000 shares on her post.
Thanks to the viral post, they managed to track down the lovely lady who wished to be known as Mrs. Angela.
The interaction may be simple; Isaiah went to have a friendly chat with Mrs. Angela and she responded in the most beautiful way she could. No matter our race, belief or background, love will always find its way just like Little Isaiah and his new friend, Mrs. Angela!
