Get out the Kleenex for this one. When Tierra Gray was evicted from her home, she scooped up her two sons and took them to the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, as all of the shelters had been crowded that day.

“I was just like, Lord, what is it that I am supposed to do? What am I supposed to do right now? My kids are here sleeping inside of a jail lobby. I never thought I’d go through that. That right there was my breaking point,” Tierra told Inside Edition in 2015.

Tierra feared that the officers would take her children away. Then, Deputy Brian Bussell did the unthinkable.

“He told me that he was going to help and that we were going to get everything we need taken care of, and I just cried,” Tierra said.

“I was like, ‘Thank God, you are the angel I have been praying for all night.’”

Deputy Bussell took the family in his car and paid for a hotel for the next 10 days. Then, the shopping spree began. Bussell took them to Walmart and got the kids new clothes, toiletries, snacks, and money out of his own pocket.

“He’s the best,” said Ziare, Tierra’s 8-year-old son. “He’s like a friend to me.”

But the hotel and the shopping spree weren’t the only thing he had in store for them: he found the family a place to live. Watch when the boys see the amazing surprise below!
