This man’s random act of kindness to help a grieving mother shows that there are still many compassionate people in the world. Valerie Watts had carried her son Noah to term, but a few days before she was expected to give birth she became nervous after noticing her baby moving less and less. The doctors confirmed the worst. Noah’s umbilical cord had become pinched in the womb and he was stillborn.
After the tragedy, Valerie held a garage sale to sell off the crib, clothes and baby items she had bought for Noah.
Gerald Kumpula, a local craftsman, came to the sale and was interested in buying Valerie’s crib. She was hesitant at first and when asked why she told Gerald’s wife about Noah.
Gerald took the crib home and decided to transform the crib into a memorial bench for Valerie’s lost baby. He brought it back to Valerie and she was moved beyond words by his touching gift.
