A foster mom in Newcastle, Oklahoma was at Walmart with her three children Friday night when she struggled to pay for her groceries using WIC (a federal program that provides assistance for low-income families with children).
"[There were] more customers, more grumbling and dirty looks as they moved to the other lane and I'm frustrated and trying not to cry," the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, wrote in a Facebook post. "At this point, a lady we know came up and asked why I was causing so many problems. I told her I was just failing as a foster mom because I can't figure out WIC and almost burst into tears right there."
20 year old Nicholas Tate was nearing the end of his shift at the cash register when he decided to pay for her groceries himself.
"I felt like God was telling me to pay for it. When we feel like God is telling us to do something -- how many times do we say no? In that moment, without a doubt, he was telling me to pay, telling me these people are in need, to help them," Tate explained.
Since the foster mom never saw Tate's name-tag, she took to Facebook to share the story in hopes of finding him. Luckily, the post was shared hundreds of times, and eventually they were able to reconnect!
"I have been able to get into contact with this young man... and thank him again as well as his mom and tell her how incredibly blessed we were by her son and thank her for raising such an exceptional young man," she wrote. "Additionally multiple managers from Wal-Mart have contacted me regarding this issue to figure out who it was, wanting to help make it right and help however they can. As well as someone from WIC."
