We all know getting through the hassle of airport check-ins and flying can be the quite the stressor in and of itself. Add three little ones into the mix at 35,000 feet in the air, and you’re asking for the onset of a mommy meltdown.
Babies and planes often do NOT go well together, and unfortunately, some strangers are not so understanding of the unrelenting crying fits that can ensue after takeoff.
That’s one struggle a mother traveling to LAX on Hawaiian Airlines last week understood all too well. With three kids in tow under the age of five, needless to say, this mama had her hands FULL.
While trying to calm her toddler for at least 45 minutes to no avail, the impatience growing in those surrounding her became obvious as the stink eyes and groans of frustration came from passengers.
Disappointed in the lack of compassion being shown, Rachel Yuen was about to get up and assist the struggling single mom as soon as the seatbelt sign went off. But before she could, she witnessed an amazing act of kindness unfold before her as a flight attendant stepped in to save the day in the most beautiful way.
Since sharing the account on Facebook, Rachel’s post has been picked up by media outlets across the country and touched the hearts of thousands.
