A struggling mother who burst into tears in Centrelink was blown away when a good Samaritan came to the rescue.
Stephanie Brisbane, 32, from Sydney, broke down after being told that her benefits would be delayed and two of her children started playing.
Center staff told Mrs. Brisbane that there was a & # 39; administration error & # 39; had occurred and that her payments for parental leave would be delayed by four months.
At that moment her son Tiberius started and started beating her four-month-old Dakota.
& # 39; I was sitting at the Centrelink desk with my three youngest children going crazy and I was just crying, & # 39; she said.
A few seconds later, a strange stranger came by, distracted the children with her phone, and handed Mrs. Brisbane a tissue.

& # 39; Without saying a word, a beautiful lady sat down next to my children, gave her phone to watch shows, and even gave me a tissue, & # 39; she wrote.
Mrs. Brisbane, who writes frankly about her struggle with postnatal depression, had recently also moved when she heard about the Centrelink error.
Although the woman had no idea what was going on in Mrs. Brisbane's life, she thanked her for her help in helping another & # 39; struggling mother & # 39 ;.

& # 39; She didn't know that I had a bad postnatal depression and every day is a struggle and lately it has taken its toll.
& # 39; She just knew I was a struggling mother, & # 39; read the post.

Hoping to track down the good Samaritan, the blogger, who also has two other daughters, Dakota, four months, and Sierra, five years old, posted her story in a local Facebook group and got in touch with the woman, a mother of the three called Kelly.
Kelly told her she almost told herself she didn't want to switch, but decided it was better to hear & # 39; go away & # 39; then to feel that she had not helped someone in need.
& # 39; Something honest has only made me stand up and come. I saw myself in you, & Kelly said to Brisbane.
Many went out to offer support to Mrs. Brisbane after reading the post, including the broker with whom she and her husband had just signed a lease.
The next day they brought a huge gift bag full of food and supplies for the family to relocate & # 39; relocation stress & # 39; to help relieve.
Other mothers welcomed her honesty and discussed the struggles that parents endure.

& # 39; Well done for you because you are brave enough to let people in. I hope your week improves, & # 39; someone said.
& # 39; From mother to mother, you do your best. The fact that you have left your home with your children can be a daunting task for some. Well done, & another person wrote.
Another added: & # 39; It costs a mother a mother and all her struggles in between. & # 39;
