CANBERRA, Australia — An Australian mother was moved after receiving a heartwarming note from a stranger after she left a hospital with her sick baby.
The woman posted the photo and a thank you note to the good Smaraitan on Canberra Mums, a Facebook page for mothers in Canberra, Australia.
She wrote she had spent days in the hospital with her 9-week-old son. After the baby was discharged, she got to her car and found a parking ticket.
“After those days in the hospital, a parking ticket was one more thing that I didn’t need,” she wrote.
But there was a note inside the ticket envelope that read in part: “I’m sure whatever you are going through at hospital is tough enough so I have paid for you. … Hope things get better!!”
The mother wrote in her post: “I hope that Laura sees this and knows how much I appreciate her support. Thank you so much.”
