'I know how it is!' Woman thanks strangers who helped her as she traveled alone with two kids
A Dallas mom on a flight with two toddlers gets unexpected help from a kindly "angel."
Traveling alone with one child is hard, with two it can be a veritable nightmare.
Mother-of-two, Becca Kinsley, was traveling alone with her sons James, two, and Wyatt, five, on her way home from Disney World when she had her faith in humanity restored - and her belief in angels.
She posted her account of her harrowing journey on her Facebook page on December 8, 2018, along with a photo of one of her "angels. The post garnered 800,000 views, and 130,000 shares.
TRAVELING WITH TWO TOTS FROM DISNEY WORLD TO DALLAS
Becca's adventure started while she was waiting in the security line for the check-in to her flight. She was holding an exhausted 2-year-old and her 5-year-old had started screaming when another mom reached out to her:
"Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says 'here, jump in front of me! I know how it is."
"HAND ME EVERYTHING. I'VE GOT IT!"
A little later, on her way to the gate, as she juggled toddlers and hand luggage, another woman approached her. Her second "angel" took her luggage and carried it to her boarding gate, assuring her that she would make sure she got onto her flight safely.

BUT THE ORDEAL WASN'T OVER
Once on board, Wyatt started screaming and only fell asleep in Becca's arms after take off. And that was when the third Christmas "angel" stepped into her life.
A woman stood up and approached the little family. She told Becca she needed "a break" and took Wyatt in her arms and cuddled him for the rest of the flight.
When the arrived in Dallas, the "angel" carried Wyatt off the plane and handed him over to his father at the baggage claim. The sweet "angel" hugged Becca goodbye and wished her a "Merry Christmas."
Who says there aren't any Christmas miracles anymore? We are surrounded by loving angels.

A KIND STRANGER HELPS OUT A PREGNANT MOTHER
Monica Nelson, a pregnant mom traveling alone with her 20-month-old son Luke, had an equally inspiring experience.
During the flight, Luke started crying and wouldn't be comforted, and that was when the man in the seat next to Monica's stepped in.
He started talking to the frazzled mom and told her that he too, had a son named Luke. Then he took Luke in his arms and started to soothe him. He got up and walked up and down the airplane aisle until the baby fell asleep in his arms.
"It was such a relief because I was a little worried traveling with him without my husband there to help out.I'm still very grateful — he was so kind."
The school teacher from Atlanta was moved by the man's kindness and compassion and shared her story which has inspired thousands of people.
