Every parent is aware of how challenging it may be to take their children on a trip. Taking care of a youngster while traveling may make an already tense event far more frenetic.
When Rubin Swift, a young father from Ohio, was unexpectedly left stranded at the airport with his newborn child in tow in the year 2018, he found himself in an extremely difficult situation.
The airline had denied his request to board with both his infant and himself. They were really fortunate that Joy Ringhofer, a good samaritan with a lovely heart, was there to rescue the day.

Swift was awarded custody of his newborn daughter in 2018, and as a result, he traveled all the way from Ohio to Arizona to get his daughter back. He couldn’t contain his joy at the prospect of having his kid move home with him soon.
When he was making arrangements for the travel, he made sure he was in contact with the airline and that he had all of the necessary documentation to bring the youngster back with him.
In spite of his best efforts, the airline personnel refused to allow him and his kid board the aircraft.
Swift naturally requested a return of his money, but the airline informed him that it would take seven days for the reimbursement to be processed.
In addition, the airline informed him that a youngster must be at least seven days old in order to be permitted to ride on one of their aircraft.
Even though he had a note from the doctor, they were unable to make any kind of accommodation for him. As a result, Swift and his newborn daughter were left stuck in Arizona without any means of transportation, money, or accommodation.
Fortunately, Ringhofer came to Swift and his daughter’s aid when they were in trouble.
During the newborn infant’s first few days of life, Ringhofer cared for the youngster in the capacity of a nurse.
She formed a close relationship with them in the hospital, even before Swift had his first encounter with the newborn. When Ringhofer learned of Swift’s plight, she welcomed him and his daughter to stay at her house until they were ready to take flight again.
Swift assured Ringhofer that she would maintain communication with her and would bring the kid to see her at some point in the future.
The father and daughter were ultimately allowed to travel back to Ohio to start their life together once a sufficient amount of time had elapsed and a fresh ticket had been obtained.
