Pregnancy is one of the most exciting moments in a woman’s life. So, when a woman named Bailey got pregnant and was getting ready to welcome her daughter, she created an account on Walmart’s online gift registry and sent invites.
Days after creating the registry, however, no one still bought anything from there – and no one else confirmed attendance to her baby shower but her best friend of 10 years. Deeply saddened by this news, Bailey’s best friend took to Reddit to ask help from kindhearted people to make her best friend happy.
Her father-in-law posted the story and they asked people to send their gifts for Bailey to her best friend’s address so she could surprise her during the baby shower.
“My best friend of more than 10 years is pregnant with a baby girl and her baby shower is this weekend. I just found out that no one is planning on coming except for me. I went to her registry on Walmart today and it has 0 items purchased so far. She’s obviously upset that no one RSVP’d for her baby shower and because I’m the only one attending and I was hoping Reddit would be able to help cheer her up. Her registry items range from $0.97 bottles all the way up to a $27 Nursery monitor. I know a few random acts of kindness would really make her day this Sunday.”
This lovely best friend also messaged Bailey’s family to coordinate the surprise party with them. Soon enough, packages arrived from all over the world, with notes of encouragement from strangers.
On the day of the baby shower, a total of nine people attended the event, including Bailey’s mom. Someone bought a cake and they had some games. After opening the gifts brought by those who attended the baby shower, Bailey was ushered outside to check out the big surprise from strangers across the globe.
It was definitely a wonderful surprise!
