Sweet Grandma “Adopts” 5-Yr-Old She’s Never Met On Long-Haul Flight.

A little girl rests her head on the grandma sitting next to her on a plane. The girl is laying on her back and is looking up toward the grandma.

Some of the best connections we make in life are the ones we least expect. This is a lesson that Nicola and her child recently learned. It all started with a particularly long flight from Africa to Canada. Nicola and her little one were there on a humanitarian trip. As you can imagine, a long flight like this one can be stressful. Luckily, a grandma on their flight was happy to take her little one under her wing.

This kind woman and Nicola’s kid were sat next to each other on the plane. According to Nicola, the woman didn’t speak English. But the they didn’t need to speak the same language for her to comfort the child as she slept.
