Sometimes, stories of beautiful acts of kindness blindside us and yank on our heartstrings to the point where we can barely hold back tears. Often, the people involved in these touching tales defy expectations and shatter misconceptions. Such is with the story of Sarah Darling, a Missouri woman, and her life-changing encounter with a Kansas City homeless man.
One day, as she was walking down the street, Sarah generously offered a small donation to an impoverished panhandler. After the encounter, to her horror, she realized that her engagement ring was no longer on her finger. She immediately went back to confront the homeless man and look for her ring. When she found him, she realized that the encounter would change both of their lives forever.
