Strangers on Southwest Flight Throw Baby Shower for Couple Flying Home with Adopted Newborn

Then flight attendants Jenny and Bobby took things even a step further. They passed out napkins and pens, and asked passengers to write down any words of wisdom they may have for the new parents:

The flight attendants gathered more than 60 napkins total and bundled them together with a set of wings as a gift to the new parents. They have since arranged them beautifully in a scrapbook for their baby girl.

Dustin said he and his wife were blown away by the kindness of strangers.

They learned that Jenny and Bobby were married, and someone had done a similar thing for them on their flight to their honeymoon. After hearing of the Moores’ adoption story, the couple though it was the perfect opportunity to pay forward the kind act they had once been shown on an airplane.

“The outpouring of love from that flight, brought on by the actions of two thoughtfully observant flight attendants… it exceeds my ability to describe what it meant to us,” Dustin wrote. “How much those wings and written notes uplifted two new parents determined to love their new daughter.”

“This website is used oft as a means to share what’s wrong,” he concluded his thread of tweets. “I hope you’ll take time to share what is good. In a world of turmoil, don’t forget to showcase the Bobby’s and Jenny’s, the kind strangers out there.

And if they don’t cross your path, be one. Seek good, or create it.”
