It was a touching and precious moment when a little boy with a handless arm met a woman who was just like him. The sun was shining down on them when they met.
They touched arms, and the toddler’s face showed all kinds of expressions, from shock to confusion and pure joy. He looked behind him for a moment and then straight ahead.
Wearing a blue dress, the lady smiled as she introduced herself to the young boy. She knew what it was like to feel different and wanted to comfort him.
There was an understanding between them. No words were spoken, and the boy was excited to meet his new friend. He then took tiny steps toward the lovely woman.
As soon as the boy was in the woman’s arms, they shared an emotional and tight hug. She knew what it meant to have friends that make you feel welcome and safe.
It was an unexpected and happy surprise when the boy asked for a hug. The lady scooped him up and held him close. She rubbed his back and continued smiling at him.
Everything changed for that young boy. He met someone like him, and she became his new best friend. They took a picture together while he was still in her arms.
