It was truly a miracle when a non-verbal girl with Down syndrome sings with a homeless man. 8-year-old Nevaeh Foster was volunteering with her church when she met this homeless man. The church was helping to feed those in need and Nevaeh seemed to gravitate towards one man, in particular. This caring girl has Down syndrome and is usually non-verbal, but something changed that day. The homeless man gave Nevaeh his juice and it automatically created a connection between the two. This stranger had virtually nothing and he still gave this young girl his own drink.
Then, he asked Nevaeh if she wanted to sing. Her face immediately lit up and she began to sing along with the stranger.
Her mom was stunned to see her daughter cozy up to the homeless man and use her voice.
Let Your Act Be The Impact Campaign
Because she loves to bring people to join, Nevaeh started the “Let Your Act Be The Impact” campaign.
It’s all about how actions can speak louder than words – especially kind words. Nevaeh’s actions are full of love, light, and happiness and she’s making a positive impact on countless people’s lives.
The video of Nevaeh and the homeless man singing was uploaded on Facebook last Thursday and is now going viral! Don’t miss this adorable duo singing Smokie Norful’s ‘I Understand’.
You truly never know what a little bit of kindness can turn into. The moment brought tears to the eyes of the sweet girl’s mom. And now, the whole Internet is sharing this beautiful story. Over a million people have been touched by Nevaeh and her kindness. Her mother says that it’s not unusual for the young girl to bring a smile to a stranger’s face and that’s definitely what she is doing today.
