Connecting With Regina
A woman at the gate for a flight from Charlotte, North Carolina, to Chattanooga, Tennessee, on November 14 engaged my 9-month-old grandson at the airport. She was as enthralled with him as he was with her. When we got on the plane, she happened to be sitting right behind us and asked to hold him. He went into her arms like he had known her all his life. She held him the entire 45 minutes, gave him his bottle, and they both fell sound asleep until we landed. It gave us a much needed break, as we had a long day of travel, and was a most touching moment. She is African-American with ‘funny hair’ as she described herself and in about her mid 50’s. She said she used to be in the healthcare field and lives in Nashville. I would love to find her and let her know how special that moment was. Regina, I believe, was her name. I don’t know where to look, so I started here with the story.
