Life just got a little better! It definitely did after KAMI spotted this lovely story of an 8-year old and how his parents literally turned the world around just so his birthday will be a memorable one!
After 2 years of not having visitors on his birthday, 8-year-old Graham Day is already expecting that no one will be attending his birthday party.
In fact, the broken-hearted little boy had resigned to the fact and told his mother, "This always happens."
"He said it in the most broken voice I've ever heard," Jennifer Day, the boy's mother said. "It happened once before, but this time something snapped in me and it was like no, this is not happening to him again."
According to Dallas News, the determined mother threw her pride away and poured her heart out in an invitational post on a Nextdoor neighborhood website.
The post reads,
When this didn't work, Jennifer, along with her husband drove to the Hurst Police Station and asked an officer if he might come see her son, Graham, who has always wanted to be a policeman.
Soon enough, not only one officer responded to Jennifer's invitation. He brought along the entire shift, along with a few firefighters.
Lieutenant Mark Schwobel of the Hurst Police Department rallied his entire team - the whole shift - and a couple of Schwobel's firefighter friends.
“We’re pretty much willing to do just about everything,” Schwobel said. “That’s what the job entails. We just want to help the community, especially a young kid [who had] nobody show up at his birthday party. A lot of people don’t think we have hearts, but we’re people too.”
Jennifer shared that some neighbors also brought their kids to the party after seeing her post.
At the end of the day, Jennifer shared, “That little broken heart was fixed by the police.”
