A little kindness from a stranger can make a world of difference, just like it did for this family.
When Sara Heller and Chris Eidam were asked if they wanted to keep their pregnancy, it was a no-brainer. According to WOWT News, “They knew their son would be born breathing and that was enough for them.”
Their tiny son, Brody, was born with bilateral cleft lip and palate. In addition, he had chromosome deletion, the loss of certain chromosomes, resulting in abnormalities. Despite his condition, Sara and Chris proudly posted pictures of their son to social media websites every day. To them, he was perfect.
Unfortunately, not everyone felt the same.
After seeing a smiling picture of Brody, a rude viewer posted a negative comment about the precious baby boy on the internet.
In the video posted on January 2, 2017, Sara repeated the brazen words left on her photo: “What’s wrong with your son’s face?”
The haunting comment left Brody’s parents shaken. The fact that someone had taken time out of their day to bully a 3-month-old online was surely heartbreaking. Sara took the high road and replied to the comment with a medical link that explained what a cleft palate was, WOWT News claimed.
Not long after the daunting experience, Sara took her baby boy out to eat with some of her friends. Then something unexpected happened.
A server approached Sara with a piece of paper. “I have a gift for you form another table,” Sara said in the video, recalling the server’s words to her.
“I was just thinking, ‘What could this be?’ Probably some nice message on a napkin.” When she opened the folded paper, she was floored.
Sara was holding something that would restore the couple’s faith in humanity at a time when they needed it the most.
