Arkansas State Troopers Help 10-Year-Old Boy Celebrate His Birthday With Cake And Gifts

Toxey, of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, was planning for his birthday party on April 2. He sent out invitations to all 21 of his classmates. Yet, no one showed up. His mother, Angela Andrews, then posted a heartbreaking message on Facebook. Then, on April 4, four state troopers surprised the boy by showing up at his front door. Toxey said he was "scared and at the same time trying to figure out why they were here."

It turns out they came to celebrate his birthday. Toxey shared, "They showed me all the sirens and the horn. I also got to see the cage with the dog in it." In addition, the group came with gifts and played with Toxey all day. They even brought him a cake and played a game of basketball.

Their gifts included video games, a frisbee and a razor scooter. Toxey stated, "They had come to give me all that stuff and make up their own birthday party for me. I cried a little bit because they did that for me. If I am remembering right, this is the only birthday that I have had with people coming."

The Arkansas State Police officers were Cpl David Frothman and troopers Kyle Sheldon, Brandon Cook, Terry Sawyer and Tim Callison.

Toxey's mother Angela Andrews told THV 11, "Just heartbroken and helpless. It's the last thing you want to feel for your kid, that no one cared enough to come. On Saturday night, I knew no one was coming, and I posted on Facebook just kind of like an outcry to parents. Just please if your kids get invited to birthdays take them."

When the state troopers left on Monday, Andrews then posted a long thank you on Facebook for what they did for her son. She wrote:

"I don't even know where to start because thank you just doesn't seem good enough! After I made a post Saturday about Toxey being disappointed that no one came to his birthday party, and Arkansas State Trooper heard about the post. What ensues is the stuff dreams are made of. This afternoon Toxey came home from school, a caravan of 5 state troopers pulled up at our house. Not only did they bring him a birthday cookie cake, but they also brought him all kinds of presents, let him play with Rino, the K-9, and play with the sirens in their cars. They ate his cake with him and played basketball with him. All out of the goodness of their hearts. They made this sweet baby's day, his year!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will never be able to repay the kindness you showed my family today! Come on friends, let's make these guys famous! They deserve to be recognized for the wonderful people they are!! Thank you Arkansas State Troopers!!!"
