A police officer in Collier County, Florida was brought to tears after a little girl ran up to her and hugged her at a gas station.
Police Officer In Tears
In a Facebook post by Collier County Sheriff’s Office, they shared Corporal Sherry Rego’s emotional reunion with the little girl whom she had met under grim circumstances.
“Cpl. Sherry Rego describes today as the best day of her entire year. She was crying happy tears a minute ago when we called. And asked permission to share this beautiful post from her personal Facebook page,” they wrote.
Incident 3 Years Ago
Apparently, over three years ago, she met the little girl, but the girl was lifeless. And she was the officer who performed CPR and saved her life.
She said, “Today God reminded me why I do what I do! While pumping gas this beautiful girl came to my truck… tears rolled in my eyes as I looked at her, her parents and big brother…”
Then she narrated the beautiful reunion, “’Her mom said to her do you remember your angel?’ Why did she say this? Because just over 3 years ago I was giving her lifeless daughter CPR. She was almost 2 and today she proudly shared she is 5 and on her way to Disney!”
A Reminder From God
Corporal Sherry also shared about the reminder God revealed to her.
“This was such a blessed reminder of why I do the job I do. And beyond grateful to the amazing agency I work for that believes in top-notch training for their deputies and equipment to do our everyday tasks,” she said.
“Enjoy your Disney weekend pretty girl, you left my heart so full today.”
In the photos, the police officer shared, the little girl now 5-years-old, was in her arms smiling.
The emotional reunion has touched the hearts as the story has been shared over 8,000 times and reacted to over 19,000.
Praise God for police officers like Sherry, because of them our communities feel safer!
