Photo of toddler and stranger bonding in airport goes viral


A photo of a toddler and stranger sharing a bond in an airport has gone viral.

It captured a businessman and a toddler becoming fast friends.

Little Carter Jean, only 16 months old, in her blue stripped pajamas making friends in the airport with this complete stranger.

“I asked her if she wanted to sit next to me and she did, and I showed her some Snoopy videos and we just had a good time.”

Carter’s father was touched by the man’s kindness and shared this on Facebook, writing “watching them in that moment, I couldn’t help but think – different genders, different races, different generations and the best of friends, this is the world I want for her.”

“He was just very kind of my daughter the entire time. Even when she was you know being a toddler and grabbing and touching and flipping through tablet you know he just you care less.”

The post has been shared more than 140,000 times since Saturday.

For those 45 minutes, time stood still, both Carter and Joseph Wright, forming an undeniable bond.

“It just warmed my heart when little Carter just wanted to share her food with somebody else, that was very touching.”

Now, some on social media did criticize Carter’s dad for pointing out their different races.

In response he said, “It’s like we can’t communicate about our differences because we’ve been pretending, they don’t exist.”

He said, “They do exist, and we should embrace them.”
