Mother senses God's hand...

It was Jessica Rudeen's first time flying with a toddler and a baby. She was unable to breastfeed her 4-month-old son before boarding, and as he screamed in distress, her 3-year-old daughter Caroline started to kick and cry that she wanted to get off the plane. Luckily they were sitting in the same row with a man named Todd. He reached for the baby while Jessica got Caroline into a seatbelt and started a movie on her tablet. Then Todd distracted Caroline while Jessica fed her baby.

During the flight, Todd colored and watched a movie with Caroline and showed her all the things outside the window. By the end of the flight they were best friends. Caroline even kissed him. What's more, Todd was serendipitously booked for the same connecting flight, and with his new toddler friend in hand, he guided the family to the right gate. He changed his seat on the new flight to sit beside Caroline again. "I was blown away by God's hand in this," said Jessica. "We could have been next to anyone, but we were seated next to the nicest man I've ever met in my life." Since then, Jessica has contacted Todd's wife, and the two families are planning to get together soon and pursue their new friendship.
