Teen Suddenly Asked His Mom To Stop The Car. His Next Move Brought Her To Tears.

Tommy Adams shoveling snow for elderly man

Tommy Adams and his mother Teresa were driving home from the DMV in Nottoway County, Virginia when he suddenly said, “Mamma, stop the car.”



Teresa told WTVR CBS 6 News that she felt scared and asked Tommy “What’s wrong?” He responded to his mother, “There’s an older man with a walker shoveling snow–I’ll help him out.”


In response to Tommy’s act of kindness, Teresa told WTVR CBS 6 News “I was so proud, I started to cry.” As any proud mother would do, Teresa snapped a photo that was later shared on Facebook.


The elderly man’s response to Tommy is a perfect way to close this wonderful story: “God bless you, the world needs more people like you.”
