An inspiring school bus driver has shown kindness to a visually impaired fourth grader as she decided to take the bus to school alone.
A’Delyn Williams has never taken the bus alone to get to school because she was visually impaired. But she was a brave soul. With the help and support of her mother and the school bus driver, she was able to overcome any fear.
Her mother, Ambrea Raspberry took a video of her first day. She said in the video, “My daughter is visually impaired. And today was her first time getting on the bus by herself. She did it and I’m so proud of her.”
A’Delyn has been going to Carver Elementary School for years. But this year, the mother decided to let the child go to school on her own. This was largely because the brave 9-year old wanted to do so.
The mother said that A’Delyn wasn’t excited to go to school because she didn’t have many friends. But when her mother let her go to school on her own, A’Delyn came home with a great story. Mr. Ryan, the bus driver has become her friend!
In the TikTok video shared by Ambrea, Mr. Ryan is seen to help A’Delyn get off the bus. He was also very eager to help her up the curb and onto their yard.
He was holding an umbrella to shield the 4th grader from the rain. When they climbed up the stairs, A’Delyn stumbled a bit!
But the mild-mannered child said, “I’m clumsy.” Sure enough, her new friend said, “I am too!” reassuring the child that he understood her situation and was there for her.
Her mother appreciated the way Mr. Ryan dealt with her daughter saying, “Her bus driver is the best.”
The videos have been viewed more than two million times. It has surely inspired many to give special care to those who needed help.
