Recently, South Carolina school district launched a program to familiarize students and police officers. Police men and women interacted with students in their classes on a regular basis to establish a friendly relationship with them.
Master Deputy Mike Gibson was one of the participating officers whose involvement in the program soon became personal. A six-year-old boy in his class started calling him ‘Officer dad’ and later just ‘dad’!
The boy had been through child abuse and lived in about 8 foster homes. That is when the officer and his wife decided to adopt the child.
What an amazing couple!
