LOWNDES COUNTY, Ga. - A Georgia woman’s Facebook post about an act of kindness has quickly gone viral.
Star Balloon-Bradley was at a Lowdnes High School football game in Valdosta with her nephew Isaiah when the little boy decided to go say hello to a stranger.
“Isaiah walked up to this lady at our last home game two weeks ago,” she said. “He sat on her lap and they were talking like they knew each other. It lasted no more than 20 minutes.”
Bradley said the woman left at halftime. Then, two weeks later, Isaiah spotted the woman again at another football game.
“Isaiah walked right up to her smiling, crawled in her lap and laid his head down on her shoulder. She welcomed him with open arms,” she said. “This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like she had given birth to him. It was the sweetest!”
Bradley said she and Isaiah’s mother, Thameka Miller, asked the woman if he was bothering her, but she said he was fine, calling him her new friend.
“She then went on to say she only has one child who is 15 and moments like this are priceless! With all the racial tension that’s going on, I’m glad to see the pictures likes these because it goes to show color doesn’t matter to a lot of people.”
Bradley shared two touching photos of the sweet encounter on Facebook. Her post has more than 742,000 likes and 241,000 shares.
“I love her and I don’t know her!”
Bradley tracked the woman down through social media and identified her as “Mrs. Angela.”
Mrs. Angela shared the following after the Facebook post went viral:
“To God be all praise, glory, and honor! I have been overwhelmed with emotions today as I have read the post Star Balloon-Bradley shared. I am humbled by the kind words everyone has spoken. Isaiah is absolutely adorable! I pray people will Jesus in all this & know His love is beyond measure & that is how I want to love & life my life. I’m not worthy but He sure is!"
