“My two year old broke his leg earlier this week and I decided to go to ToysRUs today on lunch to get him a “Get Well” present to surprise him with when I got home.

I walk up to the Cars section, anyone that knows Nixon, knows he loves Cars.

Taped to the display is an envelope that read, “Please use this cash to buy something in honor of our son Henry who would be 4 on March 2, 2017.”

I looked around in disbelief filled with so many emotions, I immediately started to cry, it was bittersweet tears. I was hurting for Henry’s family, but so thankful that my Nixon could honor this sweet boy.

I wish I could personally thank Henry’s parents and just tell them how thankful we are for their sweet gesture.

Nixon was able to get this awesome Cars garage that he hasn’t stopped playing with since opening it. Please share in hopes this will make it to them. Happy Birthday, Henry!

Why a loving God would allow a mother to lose her precious child has forever been a pain-point that plagues the human heart? But sometimes God weaves together one person’s heartbreak with another’s blessing in order to bring his perfect will to fruition.

Getting to see bits of His redemption plan on earth is one of the most beautiful things. And Ortega got to witness one of those glimpses of glory for herself when she took a trip to Toys”R”Us to buy her son a “Get Well” present.

Her only regret is not knowing who these sweet parents were who so kindly left her son a gift in their boy’s memory. Bonita is now on a mission to share Henry’s heartbreakingly beautiful story in hopes that somehow it will make it back to these anonymous angels.
