When Ravi Kahlon’s son came home from school in Victoria, B.C., he shared a note he had received from a lonely classmate after spending time with him, and Ravi was one proud dad.
His son noticed a new student sitting by himself during lunch at school, so he and his friend decided to go and sit with him.
“Proud dad moment today,” Ravi wrote. “My 10 yr old son saw a new kid sitting by himself. Another friend and he decided to hang out with him over lunch.”
At the end of the school day, the new child was so grateful for being included that he wrote Ravi’s son a heartfelt thank you note.
“He got this lovely note at the end of the day 😢❤️ ” Ravi shared.
The note reads:
“Sitting with me outside
felt better than anything.
Thank you so much.
I would like to ask
you if I can start
joining you guys outside.”
The 10-year-old’s effort to go and include this friendless new student made the child feel “better than anything.” The kindness and note were so pure and lovely that thousands of hearts online have been moved to tears by it.
“Crying 😭 So beautiful! My son is on the spectrum (Asperger) and every time he gets a play date or he gets invited to a birthday party, I cry from relief and pure happiness. He has now many friends (so I cry a lot 😂😂😂 from joy). Bravo to your wonderful kid!”
commented Eve M.
“This is HUGE. My daughter was shunned and bullied for being shy and different, and sacrificed eating lunch with some of the few friends she had to befriend a new boy being horribly bullied, and would stick up for him. No one else in the 8th grade would have anything to do w/him,” shared Marcia K.
“This made my heart smile! What a sweet baby angel,” wrote another.
“Yes!! My ASD son is in a Gen Ed class and anytime I was there, there was always one student who helped him pack his bookbag at the end of the day. (Mind you this kid was one of the most popular kids in class)” wrote Beth M.
“My eye sprinklers are going off,” wrote J. F.
“Learning your kid did something nice is the best sort of pride. Years ago my kid was hiding under the slide bc he had no one to play with, and a kid came and got him and had him play with his group. We’ve never forgotten, I wish I could thank his parents,” commented Meg N.
“That made me cry! You should be proud. Please give your son a big hug from me. I was often the new kid and it was so hard. He really helped that little boy,” wrote Carolena L.
You are Loved.
