Evan Hughes was struggling with his 8-month-old son on a flight from Chicago back to his home in Fort Worth, Texas. He and his wife Kari were forced to take separate flights due to bad weather. Evan took their kid, but traveling was a nightmare.
It was the baby’s second flight, and he was restless and fussy. Evan’s son decided to try to ‘make friends’ with the stranger sitting next to them in their row.
Evan was mortified and tried to rein back his son. But the stranger insisted on holding the baby and said, “Oh just give him to me!” Evan exhaustedly and gratefully complied with the strangers offer.
