New mother Danyale Peterson recently had a traumatic experience at an Old Navy clothes store. Her newborn baby boy started screaming and wouldn’t stop. She knew she had to leave but suddenly she saw an employee come up to her.
This is what she said about the incident:
“I have to share my experience with y’all. So I was in Old Navy (Warner Robins) with Cole initially asleep in his car seat.
A few minutes into shopping he woke up and began to get fussy, ready to eat.
He started screaming and that’s when I proceeded back to the front of the store so I could leave my things and go get his bag – when this employee stopped me to help.
She asked if I wanted her to hold him while I went to the car.
I hesitated at first quite naturally but accepted her help.
Before I even made it to the door, Cole had stopped crying.
When I returned, he was still so calm and content. She was so in love with his scent she said ‘Oh my God, you have to smell this baby’ to her coworker.
I laughed. She told me she had 30 minutes of time she could care for him while I shopped.
She would sit on the floor and feed him too if I got the bottle ready. I let her.
She even walked around the store with him after he ate talking to him-telling him he could be a President or Teacher, whatever he chose to be and kissing him softly on his cheeks and head!
I was so amazed at her sincerity and love shown towards him, I could barely focus on my shopping.
After I checked out, I reached to put him in his carseat but she said ‘NO I will walk with him to your car.’
We talked for a few minutes while I got him settled in and she put his stroller away.
She asked my name and told me she was Lora (Jackson I think).
She said it was such a blessing to have been able to care for him while I shopped, and wished us safe travels back home.
Kind is an understatement for what this woman did! And for the second day in a row I am reminded that not every one sees color!!
Thank you Ms. Lora for allowing me to shop in peace today!”
