Rebekka Gravison is a nurse from Fort Rucker, Alabama. The young woman has been married to her husband Nick for about a year and the two are overjoyed when they finally get to hold their little daughter Rylee in their arms.
Since Nick works as a fireman, he is often away from home. So Rebekka decides to surprise her husband with a visit and plans a trip with her baby Rylee.
She is nervous because her daughter is still very young and she doesn't know how she'll tolerate the flight. But then she experiences an astonishing surprise, which she described on Facebook after the landing.
"Something amazing happened to me today and I will never be able to express how grateful I am for it. If anyone has ever traveled with an infant you know how stressful it can be. Today, I was reminded that there truly are absolutely AMAZING individuals in this world even if they are complete strangers to you. I have been planning this trip to surprise Nick Garvison for quite some time and have been most stressed about flying alone with Rylee and all of our stuff to lug around with no help. As soon as we got on the plane at 5:30 AM it was very quiet and it was a full flight. I noticed that the 2 seats next to me were taken and this couple looked very annoyed and I could tell by their body language sitting right next to me that they weren't thrilled about sitting next to Rylee. Of course I'm already stressing and then Rylee started crying when we were just getting ready to taxi.
