#1 Boarding A Plane With A Young Kid Is A Real Challenge For Young Moms

Anyone who is a parent knows how hard it is to handle a child at the airport. Especially when the kid starts throwing a tantrum and makes it his motto to embarrass their mother in front of the whole lot of strangers.

Dunnington was boarding her flight to Portland when she heard a kid having a meltdown and he was shouting and crying loudly at the airport, grabbing the attention of all the passengers nearby, but the way the situation was handled was the reason that compelled Dunnington to share the story on social media.

#2 Dunnington Shared Her Amazing Experience On Social Media

Dunnington shared the experience on social media and within a matter of few hours, the story went viral among the online users, for obvious reasons. The post read, "Something extraordinary at LAX today… (writing this on the plane). I was at the gate, waiting to get on my plane to Portland. Flights to two different cities were boarding on either side of the Portland fight. A toddler who looked to be eighteen or so months old was having a total meltdown, running between the seats, kicking and screaming, then lying on the ground, refusing to board the plane (which was not going to Portland)."


#3 The Pregnant Mom Started To Cry Helplessly

The pregnant mom of the kid finally gave up on trying to handle her son and started to cry helplessly, "His young mom, who was clearly pregnant and travelling alone with her son, became completely overwhelmed… she couldn’t pick him up because he was so upset, he kept running away from her, then lying down on the ground, kicking and screaming again. The mother finally sat down on the floor and put her head in her hands, with her kid next to her still having a meltdown, and started crying. Then, this gorgeous thing (I’m crying just writing this)… the women in the terminal, there must have been six or seven of us, not women who knew each other, approached and surrounded her and the little boy and we knelt down and formed a circle around them. I sang “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” to the little boy… one woman had an orange that she peeled, one woman had a little toy in her bag that she let the toddler play with, another woman gave the mom a bottle of water."


#4 All The Ladies Connected With Each Other Very Well

Dunnington says, it was the best moment of her life, where no stranger talked to each other, they just connected at a whole new level and handled the situation perfectly without passing any judgmental comments or any disapproving looks. It was almost beautiful, "Someone else helped the mom get the kid’s sippy cup out of her bag and give it to him. It was so gorgeous, there was no discussion and no one knew anyone else, but we were able to calm them both down, and she got her child on the plane. Only women approached. After they went through the door we all went back to our separate seats and didn’t talk about it… we were strangers, gathering to solve something. It occurred to me that a circle of women, with a mission, can save the world. I will never forget that moment."

#5 Dunnington Thanked All The Ladies For Their Kindness

Dunnington at the end of her post thanked all the women for helping out the young mom in such a great way. After the post went viral on social media, the ladies who helped the pregnant mom that day at the airport were called heroes by the online community and received praise for their kindness.
