Mom writes, "I just have to share an amazing thing that happened to my family today. When I woke up this morning, I discovered that my kids' portable basketball hoop (purchased only 2 months ago) had been stolen from our driveway during the night...

"Needless to say, we were all devastated and felt completely violated. It was the last thing we needed to deal with too, our family has had a rough few months.

"Anyway, I called the Westbrook Maine Police Department and they sent Officer Jeffrey Stackpole over to take my statement. He was incredibly kind to my daughter, who shared with him...

" illustration of her feelings about the theft, and he spent a good chunk of the morning looking for our hoop (no luck).

"Officer Stackpole later called me at work to let me know that he was unsuccessful in his search, but that the WPD and Toys R Us had worked together and he had purchased a replacement hoop for the kids because he felt like it was the right thing to do...

"He came by this evening to deliver it, much to my kids' surprise (and awe). Were it not for the cold dreary weather, we would have set it up right then & there!!

"We are so incredibly grateful for Officer Stackpole's kindness and generosity (and the generosity of the WPD). He was able to turn a very stressful and awful situation into an amazingly positive experience! Faith in humanity restored."

Hopefully this story of kindness will inspire you to restore your faith in humanity and do some good today too! Please SHARE the love along!
