A stranger helped this mom on an airplane when she needed a break
10th December 2018

Mother, 31, shares heartwarming snap of a stranger cuddling her child on a plane as she praises the THREE women who offered help when she was ‘on the verge of tears’ trying to get two young sons through the airport alone

  • Becca Kinsey from Dallas, Texas thought she’d be fine flying alone with her five-year-old and two-year-old
  • Her oldest, James, was ‘exhausted’ and her youngest, Wyatt, was ‘screaming’ through security when another mother in line insisted she cut 
  • A second mom then grabbed her bags to help her to her gate 
  • On the flight, Wyatt began screaming again — and yet another woman came to sit next to Becca and cradle her son to give her a break

A Texas mother learned the hard way that traveling alone with two young sons was too tough a task — but she was overwhelmed with gratitude when three different strangers came to her rescue.

Becca Kinsey, 31, from Dallas said she was ‘on the verge of tears’ at various stages of her trip last week, as she tried her best to wrangle her two-year-old son Wyatt and five-year-old son James through airport security and onto a plane.

But every time she was about to break, a kind stranger would step up to help her, either letting her cut in line, carrying her bags, or even cuddling her youngest son to get him through the flight.

Mom duty: Becca Kinsey from Dallas, Texas thought she’d be OK flying alone with five-year-old James and two-year-old Wyatt — but they were fussy and she struggled every step of the way

Becca posted about her journey on Facebook on December 7, and her story has already been shared over 115,000 times.

Recounting her trip, the mother-of-two said she thought she’d be OK taking her kids on a plane without her husband Blake, but was unprepared for how fussy they’d be. 

‘We were standing in line in security, [and I was] on the verge of tears because Wyatt was screaming and James was exhausted,’ she wrote.

‘Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says, “Here, jump in front of me! I know how it is!” 

While Becca was touched by the act of kindness, it wasn’t the last she encountered that day. 

After some crying and screaming, ‘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.”

Heartwarming: On Facebook, she wrote about how three different women, all strangers, stepped in to help her when they saw her struggling

Blessing! She called out this woman who offered to hold her two-year-old to give her a break after he screamed through takeoff 

‘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.”

That second woman didn’t just help her get her kids and bags through the security checkpoint, either. 

Lesson learned! Becca was traveling without her husband, Blake — though she probably won’t do that again for a while

‘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,’ Becca went on.

Finally on the flight, Becca had everything in one place — but the drama didn’t stop. Clearly spooked or confused by the plane taking off, her youngest started screaming again as they rose into the air. 

‘Wyatt starts to scream at takeoff before he finally falls back to sleep,’ Becca wrote. 

‘After about 45 min, this angel [pointing finger emojis] 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 Blake, hugs me and says “Merry Christmas!!”

Becca also included a photo of the woman, sitting across the aisle, snuggling her youngest in her lap — and the little one looks quite content.
