Father was shocked when he found out why the bus driver kept the small girl on the bus longer than the other passengers


Moms are the backbone of many families; the glue that holds everything together. They organize, shop for, and prepare meals; do the laundry; do the dishes; clean the house; transport the children to their activities; and ensure that everything works well.

And there are other things that parents appear to be naturally good at, such as getting stubborn stains out of clothes, locating a misplaced sock, putting hair up in a ballerina bun, or constructing elaborate braids. Patricia Pieri, a mother from Utah, loved her daughter Isabella very much. One of her favorite things to do with Isabella was to style her hair.

Patricia died one day from a rare brain ailment she’d been fighting since Isabella was three, leaving nine-year-old Isabella without a mother and a wounded heart. Her father, Philip, 47, did his best to help his daughter with her hair afterward, but it simply wasn’t the same.

She’d get upset if I pulled her hair. I had no idea how to accomplish it. [Isabella] came home one day, and it looked lovely. I call her my princess, and she looks the part, acts the part, and her confidence is skyrocketing, just as I intended. »

So, who was suddenly doing Isabella’s hair?

Tracy Dean, her bus driver, was the one who called. Since her mother died, Tracy had been watching Isabella struggle to style her own hair for two years.

Because Philip didn’t know what else to do, she watched her board the bus with a considerably shorter haircut one day. It’s not easy for girls to comb and arrange their own hair at such a young age, but Isabella was doing her best.

Tracy has four children, one of whom is Isabella’s age. She was aware that at this age, girls allow their physical appearance to affect their self-esteem.

Tracy began keeping Isabella back after the other kids got off the bus in order to rapidly brush and style Isabella’s hair.

«I could see she was having trouble with her hair. We normally start with two French braids, but every now and then she only wants one braid. I also showed her how to brush her own hair. When she got on the bus, she’d add, ‘I brushed my hair.’ Is it appealing? » I’ll say, ‘You did fantastically.’ »

Isabella’s father was overwhelmed by the kindness extended to his daughter.

She had also fought cancer and wondered, «What if it was my child?»
I just like how my mother taught me to be polite to everyone—people who need a little love in their lives. I prefer to give everyone a chance, even the bad kids.
