Mom Writes Letter to Man at the Rodeo Who Changed Son's Life

Thankful Adoptive Mom Wrote a Letter to the Man at the Rodeo Who Changed Her Son's Life

Dear stranger next to us at the rodeo,When my son came up to you and grabbed your arm, you didn't know he used to be...

When Lincoln was adopted back in 2015 by Charity Stewart Robinson, he was afraid of people. He had been diagnosed with a sensory processing disorder and language disorder, and his new mama didn't know when she'd see the day that he could laugh, play, or engage with others. Everything changed for her — and Lincoln — on a family outing to the rodeo a few months after his adoption when he approached a man sitting down the row from them.

Robinson wrote a heartfelt and grateful letter to this man after the event, which she posted to her Facebook. What she didn't know was that in writing a letter to this mystery man, her friends and other commenters would work together to find the rodeo guest that her son took to so effortlessly. The man is Jason Taylor, a pastor of Bar None Cowboy Church in Henderson, TX, which the family attended the next day.

Robinson added more photos to the comments section of the original post and expressed more gratitude to Taylor for his interactions with Lincoln. She wrote: "Yesterday he was a stranger and today he is a friend we sat next to in church . . . So lucky that God made sure our paths crossed last night."
