CANBERRA, Australia — A heartwarming note from a kind stranger to a mom in the hospital with her sick baby is going viral.
The mother posted the photo and a thank you to the Good Samaritan on Canberra Mums, a Facebook page for moms in Canberra, Australia.
She wrote that she’d spent days in the hospital with her 9-week-old son. When she was discharged and got to her car, she found a parking ticket.
“After those days in the hospital, a parking ticket was one more thing that I didn’t need,” she wrote.
But when she opened the ticket envelope, she found a note. It said in part:
“I’m sure whatever you are going through at hospital is tough enough so I have paid for you…Hope things get better!!”
The mom wrote in her post, “I hope that Laura sees this and knows how much I appreciate her support. Thank you so much.”
