This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Davenport, IA, where 7 year old Eddie Hanzelin helped reunite two siblings who had not seen each other in 65 years. Eddie helped 7o year old Clifford Boyson find his sister Betty Billadeau by using his mom’s Facebook account to search for Betty’s maiden name. Betty and Clifford had been separated into different foster homes when they were children. Eddie immediately saw the family resemblance in Betty’s picture and knew he had found Clifford’s sister.
The two siblings met each other last Saturday, and they had a (happily) tearful reunion. Eddie said:
“Clifford did not have any family, and family’s important.”
Eddie said that he learned about helping others at school, and we are so proud of him and his social media detective work! You can read more about this story here.
