In 2015, Officer Jody Thompson was just about to start his day at the police station in Poteau, Oklahoma when he a call of child abuse went out on the radio.
Thompson quickly decided to drive to the scene to see if his assistance was needed — but at the time, he had no idea he was to meet his future son.
The scene inside the house was horrifying and heartbreaking. Thompson was shocked to discover a scared and confused 8-year-old boy bound by his hands and feet with rope. He was starving, covered in bruises and soaking wet. The boy had reportedly been submerged in a trash can and held in the shower.
“When I seen him. When I seen him in that house…I knew,” Officer Thompson said. He was never going to leave the boy’s side.
Thompson rushed the boy to the hospital and remained by his side while he recovered in ICU.
But here’s where the story takes an incredible turn. Thompson and his wife adopted John Thompson into their family. John Thompson is now a straight-A student and in the gifted program at school. He is now getting all the love and care he deserves.
The story doesn’t end there. While going through the adoption process with John, Thompson and his wife learned John’s biological mom gave birth to a baby girl while in jail.
