Courtney said Harlynn was, as usual, reluctant to keep still and didn't let her have a quiet dinner with her dad.

Overwhelmed, she asked Nianni to pack her food so she could go and eat in her car. However, Nianni generously offered to feed Harlynn. Courtney explained:

She brought Harlynn a bowl of ice cream with caramel syrup and even though Harlynn wouldn’t let her hold her, she sat there in my lap and let Nianni feed her while I ACTUALLY GOT TO EAT MY FOOD WHILE IT WAS STILL HOTT!!!!!

Courtney was hugely appreciative of Nianni's help. She said:

Girl, you will never truly know how appreciative I am for tonight. I seriously admire you. I aspire to be the go getter you are and like I told my dad on our way home, it has to take someone with a strong heart and mind to do what you do because I know I couldn’t!

Nianni also took to Facebook and said she was only being compassionate:

Nevertheless, her small gesture went a long way and warmed the hearts of thousands of people around the world.
