'The sweetest': Young boy meets woman at football game and the most amazing thing happens

Remember being told not to talk to strangers when you were a kid?

Well, this kid certainly didn't follow those rules- but the most amazing thing happened anyway.

Isaiah Miller was at a football game a few weeks ago with his aunt, Star Balloon-Bradley.

During the game, Isaiah wandered up the stands and struck up a conversation with a woman he had never met before.

They were chatting away and the child even crawled into her lap.

Although the woman left the game to meet up with her daughter before Star could catch her name, the pair luckily spotted her sitting in the stands once more at another game. 

Star made a Facebook post about the encounter, posting two pictures of the woman and Isaiah.

She wrote, ''not long after we sat down at the game, Isaiah spotted her. She waved at him and he made his way up to her. I thought their interaction would be the same as last time, but I was wrong. Isaiah walked right up to her smiling, crawled in her lap and laid his head down on her shoulder. She welcomed him with open arms.''

She continued, “this lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep like she had given birth to him. It was the sweetest!! We asked her if she wanted us to get him but she kept telling us she (and he) was fine!! Isaiah and this lady have NEVER met before, other than those 20 mins at a game 2 weeks ago.”

Star explained how she tried to approach the woman and apologise for her nephew bothering her, but the woman, Mrs. Angela, said that he was her new friend and she was happy to spend time with him.

The post got a huge reaction, with 1 million likes and over 300k shares as well as lots of lovely comments.

One person wrote, ''awesome. The world would be a better place if we all have love in our hearts'' while another said, ''precious…we can learn a lot from children.''
