Mom Helping Another Mom Finish Shopping at Target 2018

How This Total Stranger Helped a Mom Shopping Alone in Target With Her Crying Baby and Toddler

Rebecca Paterson was taking her first trip to Target back in March with her sons, 2-month-old Aiden and 2-year-old Jacob, when both of them started having meltdowns — at the same time. The mother of two started putting her groceries back on the shelves and preparing to leave when another mother of two from the same town of Pearland, TX, came to the rescue. Tiffany Jones-Guillory offered to walk with Rebecca and hold Jacob so she could finish shopping.

"She saved me today, moms!!! I am so sleep-deprived and was running on empty. A little kindness and understanding goes a long way," Rebecca wrote in a private Facebook group for Pearland moms, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Tiffany told KHOU 11 she was shopping when she saw Rebecca struggling with her little ones. The two walked around the store together for 45 minutes. "It really touched me because I know how it is. I have been there, I have two kids, and it's frustrating," she said. "I just wanted to help. God sent me there to help her." Watch the video above to hear how the whole sweet story unfolded.
