People are always telling children not to talk to strangers – but everyone is glad that little Isaiah Miller didn’t follow that advice in a sports stadium.
In September, 2018, Isaiah’s aunt, Star Balloon-Bradley, brought her nephew to a football game when he wandered up into the stands and started chatting with a woman whom he’d never met before. Not only did he end up crawling into her lap, they were also “talking like they knew each other.”
Unfortunately, the woman left before Aunt Star could catch her name—but then, weeks later, she spotted the same football fan sitting in the stands once more.
“Not long after we sat down at the game, Isaiah spotted her,” wrote Balloon-Bradley. “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 walked right up to her, crawled into her lap and laid his head down on her shoulder. She welcomed him with open arms.”
“This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like she had given birth to him. It was the sweetest! We asked her if she wanted us to get him but she kept telling us she was fine! Isaiah and this lady has NEVER met before, other than those 20 mins at a game 2 weeks ago.”
Balloon-Bradley snapped a photo of the exchange and later posted it to Facebook where it was shared thousands of times.
She said that she tried to approach the woman and apologize for her nephew bothering her, but the woman – Mrs. Angela During – insisted that Isaiah was her new friend, and she was more than happy to spend time with him.
“She then went on to say she only has one child who is 15 and moments like this are priceless!” said Balloon-Bradley. “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… Arguing over stuff…makes us miss the simple pleasures in life.”
