You would hope that most people watching a young mom with five kids struggle in the checkout line at Walmart would show some compassion and maybe even offer to help, but unfortunately people don’t always act the way we hope they would.
Lindsay Rae was in line to check out at Walmart when she noticed a scene that broke her heart.
#1 A Mom Was Just Trying To Pay For Food
A Mom was just trying to pay for food when a couple in the line up behind her started loudly making fun of her. Lindsey watched as the woman had her five kids with her, who were all different races. The couple behind her said, “How many baby daddies do you think she has?” And, “Wait until she whips out the food stamps.”
#2 Turns Out They Were Adopted
Lindsey, the woman who witnessed this incident take place, quickly went up the woman and offered to help. Turns out, the kids were all adopted, and she did not have “5 baby daddies” as the couple had thought. She had just adopted the children.
#3 What She Said
After she had helped the woman, she turned to the rude couple and said:
“Those children? They lost the right to live with their parents just days ago,” she told them. “Those clothes? Probably the only clothes they own, or got to leave their home with. THAT woman? Opened her home to kids, kids that needed a safe place to go when the one they lived in no longer proved safe enough or secure enough for them. The food stamps, something health and welfare [gives to help a mother of] two feed three new mouths. There are not nearly enough women or people like her this world.”
