Kindness makes the world a better place and provides hope to everyone. This Delta pilot proved to be an angel for a family with his genuine and kind gesture. A woman named Marina—who goes by @marinagilliland on TikTok—was watching airplanes take off with her son and husband while waiting for her flight. A pilot sitting inside a Delta plane saw the excitement with which the 2-year-old named Teddy was watching planes and waved at him. He later decided to make the child feel even more special with some adorable gifts.

The text overlay on the video reads, "The sweetest moment happened to our baby in between flights." The dad and the 2-year-old could be seen sitting and spotting planes from the airport and the child's excitement knew no limits. Meanwhile, a pilot looking at the father-son duo started to wave at the boy from the inside of the plane. The text overlay read, "The kindest pilot noticed our son watching planes and caught his attention." The child also waved hello back at the pilot. After the brief gesture, the pilot came to meet the boy and said, "I brought some trading cards and some wings" and asked the dad if it was okay to give the gifts to the child.

The mom exclaimed, "Oh yeah!" The 2-year-old was standing behind a seat, so his dad brought him out to receive the gift from the pilot. "I brought you a whole bunch of cards. These are the different airplanes," the pilot told the child. He also showed the picture of the airplane parked behind and then said he could keep all the cards. The sweet pilot also handed out small wings to the child. The kid said, "Thank you" and again waved at the pilot. The pilot also told him that he had been waving at him from the airplane and that was when the child could connect that it was the same person. The video ended with a thank you note to the pilot. "Thank you to this Delta pilot who took time out of his day to make ours."

The video is captioned, "@delta flying with a 2-year-old is never easy. One of your pilots, who I think had just flown back from Nice, made our trip back home so sweet with this little moment of kindness while we were watching planes take off to entertain our little boy. His kindness should not go unnoticed!" People loved this beautiful moment between the child and the pilot. @haipaipr995 commented, "I fully believe that these types of interactions are what set our children up for destined passions or careers." The pilot's wife, @donkerspeaks947, saw the video and commented, "Thanks for sharing. This is my husband. He did indeed come home and tell me about this right away, LOL."

@fkb1997 expressed, "The way my heart melted and I'd be crying at the airport if I witnessed this." @janellegelvezon shared, "Delta is my favorite. I once was traveling with my toddler by myself and a Delta pilot came over and helped me push my stroller and grabbed my bag so I could focus on just holding my baby." @ak_nemesis88 said, "From a man who has loved planes since his age, he'll never grow out of it."
