For 3 years, this man stood on the same street corner — rain or shine. And for years, people drove right past him. But one day, a woman stopped. When she heard his story, she broke down into tears, and ended up “saving” him”: http://cbsn.ws/2lXtX7A
Having a sick little one is a strain on any parent.
As we’ve seen from other couples with ill or injured little kids, it’s never easy. You’re already exhausted from weeks or months with little to no sleep, and from constantly making sure that your child is happy and healthy. When he or she comes down with a fever? You can go ahead and add anxiety to the daily cocktail.
After Dallas French’s little girl, Ellee James French, got her 4-month shots, she came down with a fever. This is relatively normal, so she and her husband didn’t think much of it, except to monitor it in the coming days.
Later that night, she started throwing up, but they still weren’t too panicked. French told LittleThings that they believed her formula simply wasn’t sitting well after her day at the doctor — nothing really out of the ordinary, yet.
However, when she was still throwing up a few days later, that’s when Mom knew that it was time to take her back to the doctor to see if there was anything else besides the shots making her baby girl ill.
After a tough month, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Little Ellee French was later diagnosed with a mild case of hydronephrosis, and doctors tell Mom that she’ll soon grow out of it, and will be monitored by doctors in the meantime. Thank goodness!
Thank heavens for people like Robert Davis, too, for being a shining light in a moment of darkness.

A California woman was moved last month after a child returned her lost wallet, along with an adorable note explaining why he did it.
“It was just this simple act of kindness that just warms my heart,” Taylor Sloan of Santa Rosa, California told ABC News. “I’m glad it’s getting attention. It obviously goes to show that he comes from a really great family.”
Sloan, 22, said it was on Jan. 30 when she lost her wallet at a motocross event in Oakland.
She said she was carrying her ID, debit card and about 30 to 40 dollars in cash.
“I had my wallet in the back of my pocket and probably just lost it when I sat down in my seat,” Sloan said. “I didn’t see it was lost until the event was over.”
Sloan canceled her debit card and made her way to a local DMV for a new license.
Then, she said, her mother called saying she had gotten a letter in the mail from a boy named Nasim, 10, along with Sloan’s missing wallet.
Dear Ms. Sloan,
My name is Nasim Lawrence and I am 10 years old. I found your wallet on the ground at the Super Motocross event in Oakland. I know how it feels to lose something and I wanted to make sure you got your wallet back. Hopefully, I have made you smile and you are happy to have your money and ID back. I am glad I found it instead of some bad person who would steal from you. You look like a very nice person who does nice things for people so I wanted to do something nice for you. Plus it’s the honest thing to do.
“I was ecstatic,” Sloan said of receiving the letter. “It was the sweetest thing. It was adorable.”
Sloan said she has written a letter back to Nasim and plans to send it, along with a $20 reward and a bag of candy.
She added that she’s been in touch with Nasim’s mother, after she shared the letter on Facebook.
