Tom Mitchell works as a car mechanic in Clarksville, Tennessee. He often repairs school buses and sometimes even acts as a substitute bus driver who fills in for a group of special needs students.
Recently, Tom was working his bus route when he spotted one of these students, a 10-year-old girl named Lydia, in a wheelchair. She was having difficulty getting from her house to the bus. The stone steps leading to the street were giving her and her mother a particularly tough time.
The more Tom watched Lydia and her single mom Verna, the more he grew concerned. The “fixer” in him instantly began envisioning a solution.
Lydia was born with a seizure disorder that has stunted her development and prevents her from walking and talking. Verna says she initially bought an aluminum ramp to place outside the home in an effort to make transporting Lydia easier, but she found it only created more problems as it didn’t properly fit the space.
“I just never thought anyone would even take notice,” she said. “And maybe I didn’t even realize my predicament, because I’m so used to doing it solo.”
That’s when Verna received a phone call from Tom, the substitute bus driver whom she hardly knew. He had a question for her… and you do not want to miss what happened next.
