A photo where a boy shares a heartwarming hug with a stranger has gone viral and has touched the hearts of millions.
Boy Shares Heartwarming Hug with Stranger at Football Game
On September 8, Facebook user Star Balloon-Bradley detailed in a post how her nephew ended up sharing a very touching moment with a woman he never met before.
According to Bradley, she was at a Lowdnes High School football game with her nephew Isaiah when the little boy came up to say hello to a woman he spotted on the bleachers.
“Isaiah walked up to this lady at our last home game two weeks ago,” Bradley said in the post. “He sat on her lap and they were talking like they knew each other. It lasted no more than 20 mins.”
The amazing encounter was cut short, however, because the lady needed to go see her daughter. Bradley thought that would be the last time they would ever see the woman. But in an amazing twist of fate, two weeks later, Isaiah saw the same woman at another game.

Bradley continued, “Fast forward to tonight, not long after we sat down at the game, Isaiah spotted her. She waved at him and he made his way up to her. I thought their interaction would be the same as last time, but I was wrong.”
Isaiah then walked up to the lady, sat on her lap, and laid his head on her shoulder—a sight not even Bradley was prepared to see. The Georgia native said it was as if they had known each other for years when the truth is, it was just their second encounter!
“She welcomed him with open arms. This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like he had given birth to him. It was the sweetest!” Bradley shared.
Worried that her nephew might be causing her discomfort, Bradley told the woman she was sorry her nephew was bothering her. The woman went on to tell her he was not a bother and not to say it again. Getting more comfortable around the family, the woman the shared that she has a child too, a 15-year-old girl.
Bradley has nothing but praise for the lady. She expressed how grateful she was to have witnessed such a delightful encounter.
“With all of the racial tension that’s going on I’m glad to see the pictures like these because it goes to show color don’t matter to a lot of people. It really don’t!! Arguing over stuff as such makes us miss the simple pleasures in life,” the post continued.
Star Balloon-Bradley later found out that the woman’s name is Mrs. Angela.
Mrs. Angela found the viral Facebook post and expressed her happiness over the sweet messages she had been getting from people.
In a separate post, Mrs. Angela said, “To God be all praise, glory, and honor! I have been overwhelmed with emotions today, as I have read the post Star Balloon-Bradley shared. I am humbled by the kind words every one has spoken. Isaiah is absolutely adorable!”
