Stranger On Train Waits For Boy To Fall Asleep, Then Hands Single Mom A Note About Her Parenting

Samantha Welch is a 20-something single mom to a rambunctious little boy named Rylan.

In 2015, Samantha brought 3-year-old Rylan onto a crowded train and proceeded to keep him as occupied as possible until he fell asleep on her lap.

During the trip, a man wearing a hat and glasses sat down in her car. There was hardly any space, but she kindly made room.

When the man reached his stop, he stood up, tapped her on the shoulder, and said, “I think you’ve dropped this out of your bag.” He handed her a folded up piece of paper and exited the train.

Samantha realized the man was lying. He had actually handed her a note he wrote, along with some cash.

When Sammie read the stranger’s words, she was so shocked that she wanted to cry right there in her seat.

In January 2015, 23-year-old Samantha Welch was sitting on the train next to her three-year-old son, Rylan.

Even though the train was very crowded that day, Samantha made room for a man to sit down next to them.

The man wore glasses and a hat.

The single mother from the U.K. did everything she could to keep little Rylan occupied — from playing games to general chitchat.

At one point, the mother-son duo quietly worked together on a quick lesson about manners.

Eventually, Rylan fell asleep and Samantha moved him onto her lap, cuddling him close.

The man seated next to Samantha reached his stop, stood up, tapped her on the shoulder, and said, “I think you’ve dropped this out of your bag.”

He quickly handed her a folded up piece of paper and exited the train.

Samantha looked at the paper in her hand and realized it was a handwritten note wrapped around a £5 bill.
