Mom Notices UPS Driver Leave a Message on Her Door Cam – What He Said Changed both Their Lives
One UPS delivery driver proved that a sweet moment can move mountains in a stranger’s life.
UPS delivers over 24 million packages daily. Yet, as Jessica Kitchel of Roswell, Georgia found out, their employees — a special one in particular — is the real gift.
Her home security camera footage showed a delivery man walking up to her front porch when he noticed an oversized “lawn stork” to announce the birth of a baby boy.
After laying down the package, he leaned in to deliver a special message.
If this is the ‘It’s a Boy’ house…I hope all is going well with your newborn. I had a child at around the same time you guys did, and I just hope everything is going good.UPS delivery man
That brief moment would spark a cycle of sweetness that took on a life of its own.
Why a UPS Driver Left a Special Delivery Message on Camera
Kitchel posted the video on Instagram and it quickly went viral with over 80,000 views.
“It was good to be reminded that there are still great people working hard every day for us!” read her caption.
Speaking with the Washington Post, Kitchel said that she was recovering from a C-section after the birth of her son Chancy and the message was exactly what she needed.
She wasn’t the only one in need of it, as people left glowing comments.
“This story brought tears to my eyes! ❤️,” posted one.
Absolutely love this! Just a few kind words can truly change a person’s day. You never know behind closed doors what struggles a person may be going through.Commenter
Feeling the love, Kitchel had all the motivation she needed to find and thank the sweet UPS driver, and she wouldn’t stop until she did.
The UPS Driver’s Message That One Mother Needed Most
Kitchel posted several messages asking if anyone knew the driver’s identity. After some work and contacting UPS directly, she finally got a name: Dallen Harrell.
In a post, Kitchel also shared that Harrell had a 3-month-old son named Devereaux. Now it was time for Harrell to feel the love, and it was more than anyone expected.

To start, Kitchel left a goodie box for Harrell containing diapers, wipes and a stuffed giraffe, and left it on her porch. Five days after the first delivery, Harrell delivered another package to Kitchel’s house and met the whole family.
