Chellie Heckman, the wife of Jason Heckman, took to Facebook to share what she found when she went to her husband’s office after he didn’t come home from work. And the post is taking the internet by storm.
Read the Facebook post below.
“My husband, Jason, is a supervisor for The Department of Family and Children services. He among many others do a very thankless yet fulfilling job and well it takes a very special person to handle these cases. Yet the case workers and investigators are hardly recognized when there is something great that happens.
After taking this baby into the care of the state, in the process of placing him into foster care, he had to stay after hours and return to pick him back up before hours. Being away from family and familiar faces, the baby was kinda fussy and so he was soothing him and well needless to say they had a special moment…
In a world of hate, anger, arguments of guns and no guns, ridiculous political mud slinging there are children that are struggling with day to day life. It is those people that care for the children that are overlooked, underpaid and well just not recognized for the amazing, loving jobs that they do.
You never hear anyone say ‘oh yay, here comes DFACS (Department of Family and Children services).’ They run and avoid, lie and don’t cooperate when the job they are doing is trying to help the Children. Attached is the perfect picture of the love and compassion that these guys give that goes unnoticed, while he had stayed out after hours with this baby and went in 2 hours early, his focus was to make sure this baby was cared for and felt safe.”
Can you imagine a world without these brave men and women?
Not many are willing to carry such a burden. While others want to sweep problems under the rug, these individuals face the heavy issues, head-on. But this single, sweet moment of a hero and his rescued baby proves that it’s worth it.
Maybe it’s about to give credit where credit is due.
