Some people come into your life for a reason, when they do, it’s up to you to see the signs. One Uber driver did exactly that when this new mother vented to her during their ride. The young woman’s story touched the driver’s heart, she knew she had to do something about it.
The new mothers baby was in the NICU, she was alone in a new city and had no clothes for her new baby. What the Uber driver took the young mother by surprise, and is touching people all over.
Selfless Uber driver surprises new mother with 30 outfits, after hearing she’s in a new city with no baby clothes
Nikki Ihus, is a new mother from Kansas City, her baby was born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. This is a rare, life-threatening, condition in which there is a hole in the baby’s diaphragm.
That’s how the young mother ended up in St. Petersburg, Florida, the CDH team at St. Petersburg hospital is among the best in the world.
Being in a new city, Nikki didn’t have any clothes for her baby, so she called an Uber to head to the clothes store
When she got in the Uber she couldn’t help but vent to the driver, Belinda, Nikki just needed to tell someone about the hardships that were going on in her life.
“She told me her story. She was in tears a couple of times and I really felt for her. She needed to talk and I was there to listen, people don’t listen anymore. I believe people get in my car for a reason other than a ride.” Belinda said.
After hearing Nikki’s story, Belinda knew she had to do something. So she parked her Uber and went into the store
When Belinda dropped Nikki off at Rhea Lana’s, a children’s clothing store she drove off. As she drove away, she couldn’t get Nikki and her poor baby out of her mind. So she turned her Uber around and went back to the store.
She went in and found Nikki shopping, she explained that she couldn’t let her be alone and the two shopped together. Nikki was so happy to have Belinda shopping with her, she couldn’t believe what the Uber driver did next.
When it came time to check out, Belinda paid for all 30 of the outfits Nikki picked out, the new mom couldn’t help but cry
Nikki was thrilled to have the company while shopping, but she never dreamed Belinda would pay for all the clothes she picked out! Without thinking twice, the generous driver paid for 30 outfits. Nikki burst into tears, the generous gesture just overwhelmed her with joy!
“For this stranger to go completely out of her way – stop what she was doing and stop making money – to come be with me for a couple of hours while we shopped together, that was just incredible.” Nikki said.
What an inspiring story! We can all learn a thing or two from Belinda and her kindness. Watch the video below!
