Kind 18-Yr-Old Built A Handmade Crib For Struggling Family’s 14-Month-Old That Didn’t Have A Bed

When a high school graduate found out that his girlfriend’s 14-month-old baby brother did not have a bed, he decided to build him a beautiful handmade crib.

The young man’s mom, Stacey Henderson, shared that she saw her son building a handmade crib, and that she was so proud of her son.

“My 18-year-old recently graduated from high school and is building his girlfriend‘s 14-month-old half brother a toddler bed,” Stacey wrote.

It was out of the family’s budget to buy a bed, so he had been sleeping in a pack and play, which is a temporary foldable crib.

“Her father and the baby’s mother don’t have enough money for one, so he sleeps in a pack and play.”

Stacey’s son works at a store and builds furniture, so he thought that rather than just buying a crib for the young toddler, that he would build and paint one for him himself.

“My son could have just went out and bought one, but he works all day building furniture and comes home in the evening and has been building this. The last step is painting and decorating.”

Stacey was deeply proud of her thoughtful son, and for good reason.

“I am so proud of this young man for his thoughtfulness and caring,” she said.

Thousands of hearts online have appreciated this young man’s kindness.

“Great job young man. We need more like you,” wrote Lorraine G.

“I want to see the finished piece! This is beautiful and such a sacrifice for him to make – thankful for his giving heart!” commented Sundy G.

“What a special young man. God Bless him,” wrote Lucy L.

“Speaks volumes about what a brilliant man he is, you must be proud of him, so talented,” wrote Danielle A.

“Your son is a good, kindhearted man. Thank you for raising him to be conscious of other’s struggles,” shared Jackie B.
