Being a parent involves embracing so many changes in one’s life apart from the physical and mental changes. As a parent, one is ready to overcome every obstacle for their child and in the process, grow and change as a person themselves. There is much development that takes place within a person during parenthood and when the kindness of other people contributes to this process, it is simply heartwarming. Instagram mom Jenna Dillulio (@jennadillulio) was able to experience this heartwarming touch recently when she attempted to travel by air with her little daughter. The mom shared in an earlier post that she was afraid of flying but was willing to overcome the challenge for the sake of her daughter.

She said in her caption, “If I model fear of flying, she will be afraid of flying.” The post was a short video of Dillulio with her baby at the airport. In the caption, she even mentioned the steps she’s taken physically and mentally to prepare herself for the trip. She aimed to become a role model for her daughter and set an example by getting through her greatest fear. In another video, the mom shared her success story along with something strengthening and beautiful that she witnessed. She mentioned that she went to the Pittsburgh International Airport and found the Mother’s Lounge. She was immediately brought to tears at the sight of the lounge and said, “We just got into the nursing room in Pittsburgh and this is so emotional for me.” She then shared a glance of the room which contained bright and colorful Post-its all over the room.

“There’s Post-it's all over the wall of encouragement notes from mothers traveling with their babies.” Being filled with emotions, Dillulio expressed that it was the “sweetest” thing she’d come across. “I needed it so much today,” said the mom, completely overwhelmed with the support surrounding her in the form of the little notes. She then shared a few messages in the notes. One said, “You got this. See, it wasn’t so hard. Love you, mama!” Another one read, “Go mama go!” Dillulio then filmed the entire room with hundreds of colored notes filling it. She too left a note at the end of the video which read, “You are amazing.” The mother also spoke with Good Morning America to share her experience. She said, “We had a ton of things going on, so to walk in there and then to need the support and then you get it without expecting it – it warmed my heart to see all those Post-its.”

Christina Cassotis, the chief executive officer of the Airport and a mom of one herself, said that the mothers' lounge project was one of the initiatives she championed as CEO before Congress passed the Friendly Airports for Mothers Act in 2018. She added, “Having been a new mother traveling, I thought that perhaps there was something we could do more than just offer people a bathroom stall that they'd have to jerry-rig to make work for them, especially a busy bathroom." Dillulio expressed her overwhelming gratitude and said, "It's a confidence boost that you're getting from mothers that you know have traveled around the world and they don't know who you are, they have no idea what your story is, but they want to support you in this journey."
