Rowden said she was at the park with her two children that afternoon when a bus of students from Oologah Upper Elementary pulled up and started playing on the basketball court.

Rowden’s son is seven and is adopted from Uganda. Rowden said he can be shy and, as a result stood back as the older boys played basketball.

Soon after, the fifth-grade boys reportedly came up to her son, Asher, introduced themselves and invited him to play.

The boys quickly welcomed him into their game, cheering him on and giving high-fives.

Rowden shared the post to remind people that there is still good in the world and to thank the children who were so kind to her son.
