Photos of a child huddled by a stranger he wanted to befriend at a soccer game are warming hearts across the United States.
Isaiah was attending a high school football game in Georgia when he saw a woman he had never seen before and immediately sat on his lap.
Star Balloon-Bradley, the boy's aunt, was worried that he would bother the woman, but instead she happily chatted with him for 20 minutes.
"They spoke as if they knew each other," Balloon-Bradley wrote on Facebook.

The woman, only known as Mrs Angela, happily embraced the child and rocked him to sleep
Star Balloon-Bradley, the boy's aunt, was worried that he would bother the woman, he revealed in a Facebook post, but instead she talked to Isaiah as if they were old friends.
At half time, the woman, who has been identified only as Mrs. Angela, had to leave to meet her 15-year-old daughter.
But it would not be the last time she and Isaiah would cross.
Two weeks later, Isaiah saw Mrs. Angela once more and she immediately waved at him.
"I thought their interaction would be the same as the previous time, but I was wrong," Balloon-Bradley wrote.
Isaiah approached her smiling, crawled into his lap and rested his head on her shoulder. She received him with open arms.
When Balloon-Bradley apologized to the woman, Angela said that Isaiah was her "new friend" and that "moments like this are priceless."
"This lady patted and rocked Isaiah to sleep as if she had given birth to him."
Balloon-Bradley said he was still asking Mrs. Angela if he wanted them to take Isaiah away, but the woman told him they were both fine.
"Isaiah and this lady had NEVER met before, apart from those 20 minutes in a game two weeks ago," he wrote. & # 39; It was the sweetest! & # 39;
Balloon-Bradley said he approached Ms. Angela after the game and apologized, saying he had no idea why Isaiah "continues to bother her."
"She replied that she did not bother and that she did not say that again," recalled Balloon-Bradley. "She said he was her new friend."
Balloon-Bradley said he expects the images to show that "color does not matter to many people." Isaiah is represented here with his mother Thameka Miller
Ms. Angela also told Balloon-Bradley that she only had one child, now 15, and that "moments like this are priceless."
"With all the racial tension that is happening, I'm happy to see images like these because it shows that color does not matter to a lot of people," Balloon-Bradley wrote.
Discussing things as such makes us lose the simple pleasures in life. I love her and I do not know her! #LoveTriumphs & # 39;
Balloon-Bradley posted photos of Ms. Angela cradling Isaiah on Facebook, where they have since shared more than 300,000 times.
Miller (pictured with Isaiah) also said that his heart was truly overwhelmed & # 39; for the outpouring of love for photos
Ms. Angela also saw her post and said that she "overwhelmed" her with her emotions.
"I am honored by the kind words everyone has spoken," he wrote. & # 39; Isaiah is absolutely adorable! & # 39;
Thameka Miller, Isaiah's mother, also said that her heart was "truly overwhelmed" by the outpouring of love for photos.
"Isaiah has such a pure heart and has a gift of discernment even at his young age," he wrote. & # 39; This really brings tears to my eyes! & # 39;
