I don't like proms, and I don't particularly like babies, so I have no idea of why this story hit me the way it did.  If it went through the lump of coal behind my left nipple, perhaps someone here will get something out of it, too.

Very touching.

Another instance of "helping others", in truth helps us get through.

It's not about prom dresses, it's about figuring out a way to bring joy to others.

Great story!

Paying it forward - IOW, seeing Christ in people we don't know and bringing joy to them.  This is the good news we see so rarely.  Thanks for the post.
