This happened a while back, but it’s just making headlines. A cop in eastern Oklahoma named Jody Thompson was off-duty back in 2015 when he heard a call come in about a child abuse case.
An eight-year-old kid named John was in a really bad situation. We won’t go into the details, because they’re pretty awful. But Jody responded to the call, and says it was the worst abuse he’d ever seen.
So he wrapped John in a blanket, went to the emergency room with him, and stayed with him the whole night. Then instead of letting him end up in the foster care system, Jody decided HE wanted to adopt him.
He and his wife Jeanie already had two sons. Then two days after he brought John home, he found out she was pregnant AGAIN.
They didn’t let that change things though. And John’s adoption finally became official last August. He’s doing great now, and even getting straight A’s in school.
But the story doesn’t end there. Because after Jody and his wife took John in, they found out he had a SISTER.
