One of the most terrifying moments in any parent’s life, is the moment of absolute panic when they look to their side while out in a public place, only to find their child missing! The heart-wrenching feeling of not knowing where your child is can be stressful, especially in large stores such as Walmart.
One mother was shopping at Walmart and had that sinking feeling that her son was not nearby, fortunately, her story ended in a most unexpected and extraordinarily beautiful way.
She turned around to look for him and found him in a place she least expected. Her child was at the front entrance of the store, kneeling in front of the missing children sign, praying for the safe return of those missing children.
Her little boy’s huge heart melted hearts everywhere when the story first came out after it was posted by a radio station in Texas in July 2017 and the picture has recently begun to circulate again.
KVNE’s caption for the picture read, “I had to run into Walmart. I turned around to make sure my son was next to me. Instead of finding him by my side I found him kneeling in front of the missing children board praying.”
A Facebook page called Bring Aubrey Home also shared the photo because Aubrey Jayce Carroll is one of the missing children on board. Carroll has been missing since May of 2016. Hopefully, the prayers of this young boy will help Carroll, and all the other children like him, be found.
“I don’t know who this little guy is but I want to thank you for praying for these children,” the page wrote. “This has surely touched my heart. If I knew where or who this kid was I would love to thank him personally.”
A good number of people on social media have praised this young boy for being an inspiration to be open about their faith.and reminding people to turn to God in times of trouble.
