A metro Atlanta UPS driver left a nice message for a stranger during one of his deliveries has now gotten that kindness repaid tenfold according to WSB-TV 2. 24-year-old Dallen Harrell was making a delivery in Roswell, GA when he saw a home with an oversized stork lawn sign announcing the birth of a baby boy.
Harrell left the packages and a message in the home’s Nest security camera.
“If this is the ‘It’s a Boy’ house … I hope all is going well with your newborn,” he said. “I had a child at around the same time you guys did, and I just hope everything is going good. God bless and happy holidays.”
The new mother Jessica Kitchel posted the video on Instagram, writing she wished she knew the driver’s name. The video showing Harrell’s act of kindness went viral on social media.
Kitchel told the Washington Post that she was recovering from a C-section after the birth of her son Chancy on Nov.14. She decided she wanted to thank the kind stranger, so she reached out to UPS for the driver’s name. The company was able to connect her with Harrell.
The two spoke over the phone and Kitchel thanked Harrell, who said he just wanted to show some new parent solidarity.
Harrell and his fiancee, Taqueria Robinson-Davidson, welcomed their son Deveraux on Sept. 16.
“I just went from my heart,” Harrell told the Washington Post.
Kitchel wanted to show some love to Harrell in return, so she prepared a box with diapers, wipes and a stuffed giraffe and left it on her porch. Five days after the first delivery, Harrell delivered another package to Kitchel’s house and met the whole family.
Kitchel posted another video of their meeting on Instagram. Harrell and Kitchel plan to keep their sweet friendship going with plans to introduce their baby boys to each other after the holidays.
