When This Woman And Cute Little Boy Become Friends At Football Game, The Internet Went Crazy
You never know who you’ll meet at a Friday night high school football game. That’s true for Star Balloon-Bradley, who shared a story about her nephew, Isaiah, and his new friend. The story has now gone viral on social media. Sometimes, all you need is a hug to make everything better.
Friends From The Beginning
Earlier this fall, Balloon-Bradley took her nephew, Isaiah, to a Friday night football game at Lowndes High School in Valdosta, Georgia. It didn’t take long for Isaiah to walk up to a stranger, with his aunt standing close by. To Balloon-Bradley’s surprise, Isaiah sat on the other woman’s lap and they talked for 20 minutes. They were instant friends.
Meeting Once Again
Two weeks later, the two met again at another home football game. It didn’t take long for Isaiah to spot his friend. The woman waved at him and he immediately walked toward her. Isaiah, once again, sat on the woman’s lap and laid his head on her shoulder. Balloon-Bradley was stunned at the interaction.
Like He Was Her Own
The woman welcomed Isaiah with open arms. She rocked him to sleep like he was her own child. While Balloon-Bradley thought it was a sweet gesture, she had to know why the woman was happy with her nephew interrupting her evening’s plans. But once she asked the woman, she wasn’t expecting this answer.
Not A Problem At All
Balloon-Bradley kept asking the woman if she wanted her to take Isaiah away, so she could enjoy the football game, but the woman wouldn’t hear of it. The aunt shared, “She replied he’s no bother and to not say that again. She said he was her new friend.” The woman added that her only child is now in high school, and she misses the days when she could rock a child to sleep.
The only thing Balloon-Bradley wished she knew was the woman’s name.
Tracking Her Down
During their brief interactions, Balloon-Bradley never asked for the woman’s name. Weeks later, when the aunt shared the story on social media, she pleaded for others to help her identify the woman who graciously comforted her nephew. Weeks later, Balloon-Bradley received help and finally identified the woman as Angela, crediting that “it’s awesome how God connects people together for whatever reason.”
