Mark Engravalle, a police officer, responded to a call from the Walmart store in Roeland Park, Kansas. He will never forget what he experienced after reaching the store. The article continues on the next pages.
Mother in custody
The officer saw that a young mother, Sarah, was in custody after she attempted to steal clothes, shoes, and diapers.
He also noticed that her children were all standing nearby, and they were all barefoot with extremely dirty feet.
Mother starts crying
Sarah thought that she will be arrested, and she began to cry profusely at the store itself.
After Sarah’s husband passed away in 2012, she and her children have been living in abject poverty, She lost her house, and her 6 daughters, 15-year-old Emily, 13-year-old Sophia, 12-year-old Angelina, 4-year-old Miley, and two-year-old twins, Becky and Bella are completely dependent on her.
Mark only charged her with the misdemeanour, instead of arresting her.
Buying The Kids Shoes
The officer then asked her to buy some shoes, and he also bought some diapers for the young kids along with some toys, while he paid for all of them. Sarah was beyond happy at this moment, she said that she could have never imagined someone helping her out in this way. And this wasn’t the end – she got a call next day from the police officers who were willing to help her find a home. We need more officers like these!
