In a time where most newsworthy stories of police interacting with the community end with tragedy, it feels good to hear one like this, the story of how the Yukon, Oklahoma Police Department made a mother’s day.

Terra Hubbard, the mother of 3-year-old Brayden, a young boy with autism, was preparing her son’s birthday party. Then she began to receive word of her invitees canceling at the last minute. Before long, it seemed as though no one was going to attend Brayden’s party and it would have to be canceled, leaving the two alone on his birthday.

“They come up to my door, and you always think that’s bad,” Hubbard said, according to AOL Lifestyle. Members of the Yukon Police Department were at the door.

Zach Roberson.
