Becoming a parent one of the fulfilling gifts by God. However, it also can be scary if there is no one to support you.
Rubin Swift moved from his hometown in Cleveland, Ohio, to pick up his newborn daughter in Ohio, Phoenix. Since he had sole custody, he was exhilarated to meet his four-day-old daughter Ru-Andria. Rubin couldn’t wait to carry his daughter home and see his friends and family.
However, when he reached to the Sky Harbor International airport along with his daughter and went for check in, he was abruptly stopped by the airline staff. Despite having the doctor’s certificate for Ru-Andria’s journey, the airline frontier did not allow her to travel.
They had a policy that babies under seven-days-old cannot fly; as mentioned on azfamily.com Being stranded in a city, he didn’t know what to do and there was no one to help him. Rubin started to feel dreadful.
He then remembered an elderly lady Joy Ringhofer, whom he had met at the hospital. Joy is a volunteer at the Banner University Medical center and had held Ru-Andria for a few minutes after her birth.
When he entered the room, they struck a conversation and quickly made friendship. Rubin knew no one else in the city. Hence, he called her up and explained his situation.
Pleasantly, Joy didn’t hesitate a bit. What she said next was something exceptional. Rubin shared, “I didn’t expect her to say, ‘I’m coming to get you and take you home.’ So, I’m thinking, ‘She is going to drive me back to Cleveland’ but she actually brought me to her house and feeding me and making sure my baby is alright.”
The next three day’s experience made Rubin believe that there are still good people on the planet.
Such a lovely lady Joy is!
It is really heartwarming to see her kind gesture towards someone she barely knew. The way she offered help to him wholeheartedly has rekindled our faith in humanity.
Joy deserves to be honored. Share the article with your friends and let the kindhearted lady get some praise
