When Samantha and Don Swaney began to set up some furniture early in the morning for a yard sale, they had no idea their whole lives were about to change.
A police cruiser rolled up, and Samantha immediately thought that she needed to get the official permit out to prove to the officers her yard sale was legal, but the cops soon put her worry to rest with a big smile and a genuine interest in what they were selling.
You see, earlier that morning, officers Hutchinson and Searcy of the Conyers Police Department had just saved the life of a little baby who needed immediate first aid, and the cops noticed that the parents were in need of some extra help.
The officers were on their way to purchase a brand new baby crib for that family when they happened to come across Samantha and Don setting up and figured it was worth checking out to see if the couple had a baby crib to sell.
That’s when this story went from interesting to unbelievably beautiful. Check out what happened next in the photos below!
The Conyers Police Department has its ranks filled with tough men and women who aren’t afraid to chase down bad guys and put their own lives at risk to save and protect the people of their community.
But when they got a call of a baby in need of immediate emergency support, the cops showed up in minutes and helped save the tiny angel’s life. Unfortunately, the cops present noticed that the family was in some desperate need of help.
The cops noticed the baby didn’t have a proper crib to sleep in. Even though their jobs were done that day, they decided to drive to the local Walmart to pick up a baby crib.
The cops were on the way to purchase a new crib, but before they got to the store they noticed that a house was setting up for a yard sale. They were hoping they’d find a used baby crib among the other items being sold.
Samantha and Don Swaney were the ones setting up for the yard sale. And when the cops asked if they had a crib for sale, Samantha’s life changed.
You see, several years ago, Samantha lost a baby son during labor. And for years a brand-new crib sat unused in her attic, understandably impossible to throw away or give away.
But when those cops asked if they had anything for sale, Samantha feels that they were being led by the Lord and she didn’t have a second’s hesitation.
They went up to the attic and brought the crib down to give to the family in need. While it’s heartbreaking to hear of Samantha’s loss, we hope she can find comfort in the fact that her amazing gift will truly help the lives of another family.
Samantha sent a thank-you post to the Conyers Police Department, and since then her heartfelt message has gone viral for all the right reasons.
While Samantha will always have to deal with the heartbreaking loss of her baby son, we hope she’s proud of herself for finally being able to give that crib to a family in need. It must have been tough, but this family truly showed the world what it means to be a good neighbor.
And for the policemen who went out of their way to help, let’s just say we wish that these were the kind of stories that the media focused on.
