    Adopting an innocent child that was given up because of any reason is a blessing to the child’s life. No child asks to be brought into this world with the people they are born to. Being rescued from an adoption agency is a big accomplishment at an early age for many children.

    Police officer, Ryan Holets, was called to a convenience store for a theft. As Holets walked out of the store, he noticed out of the corner of his eye a couple sitting in the grass near a cement wall. As he approached the couple, he had no idea what he was in for. The man and woman were shooting up heroin in broad daylight behind the convenient store. The woman was in the middle of projecting the needle in her companion’s arm when the officer noticed she was pregnant.

    “It’s not everyday I see a sight like that and it just made me really sad.” said Holets. Holets had his bodycam on and a reporter from CNN stated you could hear Ryan scolding the woman. “You’re going to kill your baby.” said Holets.

    The reporter stated Holets became a human being instead of a police officer. “I was led by God to take the chance. God led us all together. I really don’t have any other way to explain it.” said Holets. He took this opportunity to adopt the couples baby when it was born because he knew the traumatizing life the child would face if he didn’t take action.

    There are people who never know the next step of their life. This officer believes God brought him to his daughter with this call. He knew what had to be done for the better benefit of the child. Every move is a sign. The call with a different outcome was the wake up call this officer needed. He walked away saving a different life than when he walked in.
