A 24-year-old New Mexico man was recently caught driving drunk with his three kids in the car. The children were five years old, two years old, and two months old.

Deputies Roger Garcia and Sam Rodriquez arrived at the scene to find the 2-month-old was in her car seat, but she was not buckled in. What angered the deputies most was that the children couldn’t remember the last time they’d eaten.

Cold, scared, and starving, the children became the deputies’ top priority. Despite the fact they were outraged by the behavior of the irresponsible father, the two men in uniforn tried to remain professional for the sake of his kids, doing whatever they could to make them feel safe and secure.

While three other officers arrived to help, Deputies Garcia and Rodriquez proceeded to do something incredible. There in the dark, on the side of the road, cameras captured the following photos…

The kids were cold and starving. Deputy Garcia mixed baby formula by flashlight using a cold water bottle and the car's heater. Deputy Rodriquez fed the baby boy on the side of the road. They even changed dirty diapers.

Deputy Rodriguez isn't a father — but as soon as his wife saw these photos, she told him, "Honey, it's time to start a family."
