The internet is a pretty grim and fearful place at times, isn’t it? But every now and again something does the rounds that just gives you a little more faith in humanity than you had before. Let us introduce you to the latest viral snap which was posted by a woman from Florence, Alabama, when she watched a random act of kindness unfold in a doctor’s office.

Natasha Crittenden Wilson posted the adorable picture on Social Media, explaining that the woman walked in with her sleeping baby when she was handed paperwork to fill out.

She sat down trying to figure out how best she could handle the situation without waking her little boy as the older gent in the picture offers to help. Natasha wrote: “This man, from across the room, asks her if she would like for him to hold her baby while she did her paperwork!! She smiled and said that would be wonderful!! “This man went over there and rocked and loved on that baby like he was his!! My heart Melted!!! Ra-cism is still VERY real in our society today BUT THIS MAN GAVE ME HOPE & a sweet memory I’ll never forget!! If you know this man tell him what an amazing person he is!!”

The picture has now been reacted to 1.3 million times, has 75,000 comments and 411,000 shares. Natasha told CBS: “He loved on the baby as it was his own. I knew that he never interacted with this child before…it was just really really heartwarming.” She went on to explain that she was affected by what she saw and for a very personal reason. The mother of seven explained: “It was touching for me because my children are bir0a-cial.”

It was heartwarming ‘especially because he was an older white man, just completely not thinking anything of race,’ she said. “Just loved on this baby as if it was his baby. He completely saw nothing of colour, and neither did that mom.” Natasha also told Inside Edition: “I see both sides of everything. It’s just not very often that you see compassion for a complete stranger, and especially across races.” She went on to explain that she was affected by what she saw and for a very personal reason.

Lianne Buenafe“I didn’t care if the baby was black, green of purple. It didn’t matter to me. I’d treat all children that way”. What a beautiful answer to hear God Bless this kind man

BenI mean… it’s kinda sad that we live in a world where this is considered heartwarming and surprising enough to make news.

Sandra ScottI love it when we help one another without giving consideration to any other factor besides the human factor.

hollyobabyAnybody knows how good it feels to have a baby’s little arms around your neck hugging on you knows that it was that babies arms probably put gramps to sleep as fast as that kid went.

RickThis man reminds me so much of my grandpa, before the pandemic happened he would do this kind of thing. Any help he could give if he was helping a baby. Hes entertained kids in grocery lines and at restaurants when he saw the parents were just too tired or busy to deal with a tantrum. He loves babies lol
