After her search for two young fans she met at a New Orleans Saints football game went viral, a woman was reunited with them. Danielle Trahan of Maurice, Louisiana, was able to locate Jairen, 8, and Terrion, 14, two boys with whom she and her husband Dustin formed a rapport during the Saints’ game against the Carolina Panthers.
Her appeal for the lads to be found was posted 33,000 times on social media.
“We were sitting in section 130, row 10 and right close to seats 9 and 10 at the New Orleans Saints game yesterday,” Trahan, a special education teacher’s assistant, said on social media. “I met the nicest, most well-behaved boys in those two seats… We high fived, exchanged nachos, and spoke the entire game.”
Jairen and Terrion were able to attend the game due to a family friend who gave one of the boys’ grandparents the tickets. Trahan informed “Good Morning America” that their father, Jonathan Shaffer, waited outside the venue because there were only two tickets available.
Trahan explained, “We got them chips and foam fingers.” “They were the prettiest young boys you’d ever seen. They were quite well-behaved and well-mannered.” The picture of the boys’ first football game was shared on Trahan’s Face-book wall in an attempt to get it to the boys’ parents.
Trahan was ultimately traced to their father, Shaffer. “They had a great night,” Shaffer of Baton Rouge told “GMA.” “They informed me they met a woman and a guy who were really kind to them.” “It was very much valued, and I thank Miss Danielle for doing it.”
Several individuals approached Trahan with offers of tickets so she and her spouse could see Jairen, Terrion, and their family again.
Eventually, the Saints’ attorney gave them passes to the next Colts/Saints game. Shaffer and his kids are “overjoyed” to be attending alongside the Trahans.
