A random act of kindness – caught while in a Doctor’s waiting room – is going viral globally for all the right reasons!


Natasha Wilson was in the waiting room at the doctor’s office on the 24 October 2018 when a woman walked in cradling her sleeping baby.

The woman was handed paperwork to fill out and, as she sat in the office trying to figure out how to fill it out while holding her baby a man approached her…

Wilson wrote, “This man, from across the room, asks her if she would like for him to hold her baby while she did her paperwork!! She smiled and said that would be wonderful!! This man went over there and rocked and loved on that baby like he was his!!”

Wilson continued, “My heart Melted!!! Racism is still VERY real in our society today BUT THIS MAN GAVE ME HOPE & a sweet memory I’ll never forget!!”

The story may originate from Alabama but it has been shared by many South Africans (and all over the world) because of what it stands for. Mainstream media tend to push stories that make us angry while social media users around the globe continue to show a better side of humanity and kindness.
