Recently, Jessica Nash Donnahoo, a mother of two, shared a post she wrote to Spectrum Internet to praise their employee.
Jessica, who is a part-time nurse, is raising two children – a three-year-old Sailor and two-year-old Sunny. However, her son Sailor is not an ordinary boy. After she and her husband tried to conceive for quite some time, they were told that their only option is to adopt. That’s how Sailor came into their lives. But it didn’t take long for the couple to notice Sailor’s health issues. Jessica told Bored Panda that “My son was born with two rare, unrelated brain defects: Optic Nerve Hypoplasia, or ONH, which means his optic nerves didn’t fully form in utero and he is blind as a result. The other is a Chiari Malformation. Sailor also has a seizure disorder. We have a team of pediatricians, neurologists, endocrinologist, ophthalmologist, and gastroenterologist who help follow his health closely,”.
“Sailor has several developmental delays and is unable to communicate his needs, such as hunger, pain, etc. I try to meet all of his needs but, like any toddler, he is just sometimes unhappy.”, the mother continued.
One morning, the little boy couldn’t stop crying and Jessica was overwhelmed with chores and taking care of his sister. At that time, an internet technician named Robert came to her home to upgrade the internet and Jessica shared that he walked into a “mess”. However, the technician did the best he could to help.
Jessica explains why her little boy was so unhappy that morning. The woman said: “Due to his blindness, Sailor has sensory issues and does not have a normal sleep/wake cycle. This means he can get very overwhelmed by certain noises and situations. He also often wakes up all through the night because he doesn’t know if it’s day or night. He had been up all through the night before this day,”
Jessica couldn’t hide her appreciation and then she decided to make a post about Robert’s kindness in hopes that Spectrum will see it. And the company actually reached out to her. “Rob actually works for a subcontractor but the VP of Spectrum Enterprises called me directly to thank me for the post and to report that they’re proud of Rob’s choice to step in and help with my son! The VP also has a special needs child and was touched by Rob’s act of kindness.”
This mother is happy that so many people read her story. She said: “I think that we live in a world where we are so overwhelmed with news of politics, vio*lence, and d*rugs. I think this resonated with so many people because we all need to have our faith in humanity restored at times. This post about one complete stranger doing something so kind for another is proof that there still good people out there!”
