After spending days holed up in the hospital as her newborn son fought for his life, one mom in Canberra, Australia, was thrilled when he was finally discharged. At last, her sweet baby was healthy enough to go home! But when the relieved mother reached her car to leave, an unwanted surprise awaited her: a parking ticket. Feeling overwhelmed, she opened the envelope. Relief washed over her anew when she saw what was inside.
As you can see from the Facebook post that the mom shared with Canberra Moms, an Australian parents' Facebook group, a kind stranger named Laura came to the overburdened mother's rescue. The note reads:
I saw your car had a parking ticket on it. I'm sure whatever you are going through at hospital is tough enough, so I have paid for you. Hope things get better!
Laura also included details of the payment receipt in case the mother should need it.
The grateful mama wanted to make the post public as a way of thanking Laura, since the good Samaritan doesn't seem to have left contact info. We hope Laura sees that her beautiful act of kindness was sincerely appreciated and that her good deed comes back to her.
