Ingeborg McIntosh describes the first time when she held Jordan in her arms as “love at first sight” and fought tirelessly to adopt him. Much to her dismay, he would return that affection with equal fervor when she required it most. When you catch wind of stories in which somebody “pays it forward” the nice thought is typically something little, for example, purchasing a dinner for a stranger. The span of the deed doesn’t really direct how important it is, yet in this situation, something happened unexpected and stunned everyone.
