A fourth-grader who is visually impaired has gone viral after her mom recorded her successfully making her own way onto her school bus for the very first time. Mom Ambrea Strang, 29, revealed daughter A’Delyn William – or Addy – used to be driven to Carver Elementary School in Greenville, Texas. But, seeking more independence, Addy asked if she could start riding the bus on her own. Ambrea was initially nervous, but on August 17, as her daughter made her way to the vehicle, her mom took out her camera phone and began to record the moment.
Taking the bus has now become Addy’s favorite part of the day – she enjoys joking with her bus driver Mr. Ryan [Cariveau], and now the fourth-grader is now so confident that when she hears the vehicle coming in the mornings, she rises to her feet and heads out on her own. Mom Ambrea shared the moment online where the post quickly went viral receiving millions of views and an outpouring of love.
