Her mom was ready to plan an alternate field trip day, but a teacher at her school reached out to Ryan’s mom and said he would tote the 10-year-old around for the school trip.

“These are the things that the news should be talking about. These beautiful people should be shared with the world, to see and inspire,” Ryan’s mom wrote in the Facebook post.
