Plane Passengers Throw Impromptu Baby Shower for Adopted Child

“Even as we disembarked, people kept approaching us and wishing us well.”

“After 9 years of trying for a baby, Dustin and Caren Moore were on the way home with their adopted baby girl. It was a flight they will never forget.”

“Dustin shared the touching series of events that happened during the flight home on Twitter. This is what he wrote:”

It’s been a difficult week. But, rather than publicly air my grievances, I’d like to share with you the kindness strangers offered us the day we brought our daughter home. I hope our story uplifts you, and reminds you there is goodness to be had in this world. Not too long ago, my wife and I boarded a [Southwest Airlines] flight with our recently adopted infant daughter.

With clearance to return home to California, my wife carried our precious bundle, while I offered numerous apologies to passengers while maneuvering the aisle with 4 bags.

About mid flight, our daughter awoke and politely informed us she wanted a new new diaper. After inquiring about space for a table change, a thoughtful flight attendant (named Jenny) cleared a space in the back of the plane and gave us privacy.

After a change, Jenny and another passenger complimented my beautiful daughter and politely asked what had prompted a flight with such a young infant.

I gave them the shortened adoption story, to which they hastily offered congratulations, and shared a few more kind remarks. About 10 minutes later, another attendant (named Bobby) greeted us with a warm smile, and inquired about our daughter.

We repeated the story with a few details, and he congratulated us before walking away. My wife and I exchanged curious looks, but thought nothing more about it.

Then, we heard the intercom. The attendant Bobby came on and announced a special guest on the flight. Our daughter. ‘She’s just been adopted by her parents Caren and Dustin, and is making her way home.

The entire cabin erupted in cheers and applause.
