Well this is certainly adorable. Connecticut police officer Anthony Nolan was injured during a routine traffic stop a few weeks ago. Recently he came home to find a note from 8 and 9 year old siblings Malik and Tasha taped to his door, wishing him a speedy recovery. He posted the note to his Facebook page.
You see, Officer Nolan first met the siblings a few years ago on the beach and has been a presence in their lives ever since. According to TODAY Nolan was working on the beach that day when he heard the kids crying. He explains, “I heard crying and when I approached them and asked the person who I assumed was their grandmother what happened, she explained that their book got wet and they didn’t get to read it,” he said. “I tried to calm them down because it seemed like the book was important to them.”
At that point Officer Nolan began talking with the kids about books, and ever since he visits the kids at least once a week to read to them and take them to the library or the park or even walks on the beach. Basically, because they didn’t have a father figure in their life, Officer Nolan stepped up to be a solid male figure and role model for the kids. And it’s obvious that he means the world to them. Take a look at the notes that they left duct taped to the Officer’s door.
