Kind Stranger Pays New Mom’s Parking Ticket And Leaves This Heartwarming Note Behind

A heartwarming note from a kind stranger to a grateful mother is going viral.

The unidentified woman had been in the hospital with her 9-week-old son for several days. When her infant son was finally discharged, she found a parking ticket on her car.

The frustration this new mom initially felt was certainly more than she deserved after such a long stint in the hospital.

When she opened the envelope to see the damage, the most amazing surprise was inside.

A woman who identified herself as ‘Laura’ had gone out of her way to pay the parking ticket. The note read:

Hi there,

I saw your car had a parking ticket on it. I’m sure whatever you’re going through is tough enough, so I have paid for you. Hope things get better!

The new mom was so grateful that she took to the web to try and let Laura know how much the kind gesture affected her life.
