(WOWT) January 2nd is a day Abigail Sailors won't forget.
"For someone just to believe in you like that, it gives you that unreal feeling," said Sailors, 18.
She's a waitress at Cracker Barrel in Lincoln, Nebraska. She's still in shock over two customers that sat in her section and changed her life.
"The host told us you are the happiest server, so there must be something behind this, and I just kinda laughed at them. They said do you have perfect parents, do have a perfect life? And I said something like that, but you got it a little wrong," said Sailors.
She said she felt nervous, but after the customers insisted she began to tell the strangers her story.
"When I was seven months old, my parents were in a car accident, my mom has a brain injury and she never really recovered from that," said Sailors.
Her father after the crash was deemed unfit. So she and her siblings began an extremely rough journey though foster care.
