It's not every day you meet a stranger who touches your special-needs son and leaves you feeling blessed. But that's what happened to Charity Stewart Robinson, a Texas mom of three, as they were spending an evening at the rodeo. The man was sitting nearby when Robinson's son Lincoln went up to him. Instead of trying to shoo him back to his mother, the man did something that brought tears to Robinson's eyes.

"When my son came up to you and grabbed your arm, you didn't know he used to be terrified of people. When he talked to you about the bulls, you didn't know he was diagnosed with a language disorder. When he jumped in your lap and laughed as you tickled him, you didn't know he had a sensory processing disorder," Robinson wrote. "You didn't know any of this, but you took time to connect with a child who has had to fight to learn to connect. My heart is full."
When Robinson posted the photo on her Facebook page she had no idea that anyone would recognize him. But it turned out the man was a preacher at a nearby church--and the following day they drove out to his church to see him and his congregation. Wrote Robinson after that sweet encounter: "So lucky that God made sure our paths crossed last night."
