Woman Sees Crying Man Forced To Throw Gift In Airport Trash – What She Digs Out Breaks Her Heart

I love receiving gifts, but nothing beats finding and giving the perfect gift to someone special.

There’s no better feeling than giving someone a heartfelt gift and watching their reaction when they open it – it’s really a precious feeling!

That’s exactly what Bill and Linda Modry were looking forward to when they were making their way to visit their newly adopted granddaughter. They were overjoyed that they could finally welcome the little girl to the family, and had a special gift for her to help her remember the moment forever.

Sadly, when they got to the security gate at the airport, they were forced to throw the gift in the trash.

Amarri Hernandez and her boyfriend were waiting at St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport when they saw the incident happen.

“I witnessed a man being told that he was not allowed to take his package on the plane,” Amarri writes on a Facebook post. “The guy looked at the officer and said ‘Could I leave it at the airport in the lost and found. It’s a snowglobe for my adopted grandchild.’”

But sadly, the officer was unsympathetic to the man’s request.

“The officer replied ‘Put it in file 13’ and pointed at the garbage can,” Amarri writes on Facebook. “The man was hurt and threw it in the garbage.”


We love you, Nana and Papa

When Amarri saw the man walking away from the trashcan crying, it touched her heart. Her boyfriend decided to go to the trash can and retrieve the package. When they opened the package, they discovered something that touched their hearts. The gift was a snowglobe containing photos of the couple and the little girl.

It was engraved with the message: We love you Katie, Nana and Papa 1/25/16.


Amarri was desperate to return the precious gift to its rightful owners, and posted a message on Facebook to try to reunite the couple with the gift.

Her post went viral and was shared over 40 000 times. Luckily, it caught the eye of one person in particular. An employee of ‘Things Remembered’, the company that made the custom snow globe, saw Amarri’s post and got in touch.


When i was at St. Petersburg FL airport (2-5-16) taking a flight to Pittsburgh Pa i happened to witness a man being told that he was not aloud to take this package on the plane and he had to throw it away, the guy look at the officer and said could i leave it at the airport in the lost in found so his parents could come get it because its his adopted child snow globe and the officer replied " Put it in file 13 " and pointed at the garbage can. The man was hurt nd threw it in the garbage and My boyfriend picked it up out the garbage nd took it home and opened it and it happened to be a snow globe with photos of his child that he adopted and his parents with a saying reading under the little girls picture " WE LOVE YOU KATIE , NANA AND PAPA 1/25/16. We felt bad about the situation and want to find out who these people are so we can return their gift out of the kindness of our hearts , we wouldnt want this to happen to us so if everybody could please share this photo so we can find the owners of this beautiful family and give them back their precious gift

The employee searched through the company records until she found the name of the person who ordered the snow globe. It was Linda Modry, and Amarri was able to contact her and return her parcel to her. It was only then that she realized how special the parcel was.

“She’s exceptional”

“This was something very special,” Linda tells Fox13 News. “It was for my granddaughter Katie, because my son adopted her.”

She says that her granddaughter was devastated when Linda couldn’t bring the snowglobe to her in Ohio. Now, Linda can’t stop thanking Amarri for her kind actions.


“She’s just amazing. I can’t believe that she did this,” she tells Fox13 News. “People are basically really good, and she’s just exceptional.”

However, Amarri insists that she was only doing the right thing.

“My mom raised us to always be good to people,” she says. “I would want the same thing to happen to me.”
