Before his 10th birthday, a little boy named Toxey sent out 21 invitations to his upcoming birthday party. Imagine his disappointment when not a single classmate showed up to celebrate. Toxey’s mom, Angela, felt helpless and heartbroken. “On Saturday night, I knew no one was coming, and I posted on Facebook just kind of like an outcry to parents,” Angela wrote on Facebook. “Just please if your kids get invited to birthdays take them.”
Angela’s message went viral.
Two days later, there was a knock at the door. Angela was shocked when she saw who was standing on the other side. Four state troopers — Cpl David Frothman and troopers Terry Sawyer, Kyle Sheldon, Brandon Cook and Tim Callison — asked Angela if Toxey was home. When the little boy ran to the door, he was a little bit frightened by the sight of four large men staring down at him. Little did he and Angela know the real reason they were there.
Now, Angela’s second Facebook post about Toxy’s birthday is going viral, but for a much different reason…
Two days after word spread about Toxey’s big birthday let-down, four Alabama State Troopers knocked on Toxey’s front door. At first, Toxey was a bit scared… but all the troopers wanted to do was celebrate his birthday.
The troopers spent the entire day with Toxey and his family.
