A mom struggled with her crying twin babies on a plane, a kind stranger approached them to help.
Molly Schultz was on Delta flight 1227 from Minneapolis to Detroit with her 7-month-old twin babies. They were flying back to her hometown in Michigan to bid farewell to her dying father. The family was very exhausted after traveling for hours from Washington state. While on the flight, the twins were crying and screaming and Molly was struggling to handle the situation.
“They were feeding off my frantic energy and everything just exploded halfway through this flight. I felt like the entire plane was rolling their eyes at my half-effort to stop their screams. Everyone had every right to be annoyed,” Molly wrote on her blog.
Crying twin babies
It was a one-way ticket to Detroit without her knowing when she would return home to her other children, who were still toddlers at that time. Molly had no choice but to bring her breastfeeding twins with her to continue to nurse them. But the situation was stressful.
That’s when a kind stranger approached her to help. The woman sat beside her and took one of the babies and helped feed her through a bottle.
“You sat right next to me in that empty seat and you grabbed the daughter I was bouncing in my lap,” she recalled. “I handed you a pre-made bottle of milk and you cradled my daughter in your arms as you sang a lullaby to her, looking her in the eyes.”
The kind stranger comforted both the babies and the mother of six. Molly felt the love from a total stranger who she didn’t even know the name of. God brought that woman to her at the right time and the right place to be a blessing for her.
“You swayed and sang to her like any of her family would do back home, loving her the way she needed at that moment. Loving all of us in the way we needed at that moment.”
