A 9-year-old boy’s wish came true when Michigan Police showed up to his birthday party after he feared no one would show up.

According to a story from Western Mass News, Grand Rapids Officer Austin Lynema first met Thomas Daniel after he saw him chasing the bus as it drove away. Lynema approached the boy and asked if he needed help.

Thomas told Officer Lynema that he had missed his ride to school, and that his mom didn’t have a car to help get him there. The Grand Rapids officer told Thomas to hop in, and gave him a ride.

On the way to school, Thomas told Lynema that it was his 9thbirthday, and that he was having a party later. He told the officer that he was routinely bullied in school, and was afraid that no one was going to show up to his party.

So Thomas told Lynema that he was invited.

Later in the day, Thomas’s fear came true. The party was on, but no one was there to help him celebrate.

Noting that there hadn’t been a birthday cake, Lynema and a few of his fellow officers decided to give Thomas one last surprise.
