Still a reason to smile: A 2-year-old boy was having trouble getting around. So employees at a Home

built him a walker.

(CNN) ó Imagine your child having a disorder that impacts his motor skills, such as walking. And imagine not knowing if your insurance would cover a basic item he needs to help him walk.

Thatís what Christian and Justin Moore were experiencing when they walked into a Home Depot in Cedartown, Georgia, on May 24.

Their son Logan is 2 and has hypotonia, a syndrome that impacts his muscle tone and makes stability a struggle. His mom told CNN that Loganís physical therapist suggested a gait trainer to help him with walking, but they did not think insurance would cover it and wondered whether it would arrive in a reasonable time.

So she and her husband turned to YouTube, where they found a tutorial to make one out of PVC pipe.

ďI found a video that looked pretty easy and got the list and took it to Home Depot to see if they had everything we needed,Ē Christian Moore said.

When they arrived, she asked a store employee she knew if anyone could help them with the supply list. Christian said what happened next shocked her. She was met by a store manager and another employee who came to help.

5. Kudos to Home Depot

For the caring that they showed that little boy and his family.

And where are the Republicans, who will force women to have babies, yet cannot come up with a plan for health care and services for all children ????

6. Lovely story. Thanks, Mfcorey.

You know this reminds me of a website called Next Door. People in participating neighborhoods use it for practical things, like reporting seeing a lost dog or needing firewood, and often end up knowing and helping each other. Lots of good people are around. It's the connection that made this happen at Home Depot.

7. What a heartwarming story.

Itís almost enough to make you forget that it happened at Trump supporting "Democrats, use your stupid brains. You don't have any brains." Home Depot. Still wonít shop there.
