The unexpected baby shower

Last November, Dustin and Caren Moore were flying home from Colorado to California with a baby they had just adopted. She was only 8 days old, and needed a diaper change, so a flight attendant named Jenny led the couple to a place to change their fussy newborn. She asked why they were flying with such a young child, and Caren told her "a shortened adoption story."

After they returned to their seats, another flight attendant named Bobby asked about their little girl. Five minutes later, Bobby came on the intercom and said "Ladies and gentlemen, there's a very special guest on the flight today. She's only eight days old, and she traveling home with her Mom and Dad. He then passed out napkins and pens for anyone who wanted to share a message with the new parents. The cabin filled with cheers and applause. People came by to congratulate the couple. One of the napkins read, "I was adopted 64 years ago. Thank you for giving this child a loving family to be part of. Us adopted kids need a little extra love."
