These Officers Stood In Her Front Yard With Fabric Paint After She Dialed 911. Then? WOW.

Sherry H. had been having a difficult week, but the actions of these three officers did a lot to make it just a bit more bearable. Sherry’s son, John, has severe autism, and while the officers didn’t quite understand it, they tried their best to help. Their actions have gone viral, and Sherry wanted the world to know about their heroic actions.

In the last week I’ve had 6 police officers in my home because my sons meltdowns turned to rage. With so much negativity shown towards law enforcement lately, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to show my appreciation for the empathy these officers had for my son. They showed up not knowing much about autism but they listened and learned while they kept us all safe. They also asked A LOT of questions so they wouldn’t do the wrong thing. The meltdown today was because John wants to dress like Joe on Blues Clues but I can’t find that same shirt anywhere. After calming him down, the officers went and bought a blue shirt and with Jenn’s fabric markers they attempted to create the shirt John wants.” She wrote.

That’s what this pic is, 3 officers going above and beyond to help a severely autistic teenage boy! Sadly, it didn’t work, but the fact that they were willing to do this for my son made them hero’s in my eyes.” She continued.

As her story spread, it caught the attention of a local design studio, Cutting Edge Designs, who knew that they would be able to create the shirt that had been causing John so much distress. They delivered in stunning fashion!

Her post went viral, and other parents are considering writing to the directors of the show – they are finding themselves in similar positions as the character’s wardrobe changes make it impossible to keep up! She hopes that the officers see what their actions have led to, and thanks them for trying their best in the stressful situation!
