Spokane couple Oz and Dilay first met Lyft driver Roger in a ride to a doctor's appointment. Dilay was pregnant and often turned to Lyft for help getting around town, and since Roger was a father of two, they bonded over a shared love of family.
One morning, Roger received a ping from Dilay and had a feeling this wasn’t an ordinary request. “It wasn’t just chance that Dilay requested a Lyft and it was me who answered," said Roger. "That day I picked up Oz and his wife was the day for this most wonderful gift of life.”
When Roger arrived, he learned Dilay had gone into labor and needed to get to the hospital as quickly as possible.
Later, following a quick carseat installation, Roger gave the whole family a ride back home, a trip he said was filled with "pure love and light exuding from every one of us."
He's continued to be the family's friend with a car, giving rides to Costco, Babies R Us, and even the baby's first checkup.
When Roger reflects on his experiences with Oz and Dilay, he's amazed at how far they've come together. "These people are going to be my friends for life now," he says. "I feel so blessed for being a part of this monumental event in their lives."
