Mother’s Thank-You Note Goes Viral
A mother’s note thanking a man for the kindness he showed her autistic daughter on a plane ride has gone viral.
Shannel Mouland’s letter to the man in seat ‘16C’ took off after she posted it to her blog, according to the nydailynews.
The woman wanted to thank the businessman for entertaining her daughter on a U.S. Airways flight from Philadelphia to Bangor, Maine. Mouland said she had a lot of anxiety about the trip because traveling with an autistic child can be unnerving.
She said her fears were calmed when the businessman next to her engaged her daughter in conversations, and the little girl was enamored by him. She even called him ‘daddy’ and began stroking his arm.
It wasn’t until Mouland got home that she realized how pleasant her flight had been. She posted about the flight on her blog.
A woman who knew the man in ‘16C’ saw the blog and contacted him. His name is Eric and he reached out to Mouland.
The family said it is now friends with the kind stranger.
