Not all heroes wear capes, some of them are simple people in the police uniform.
A police officer identifies as Celest Ayala has shown what it’s like to love while on duty at Sor María Ludovica in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
According to the New York Times, A team of officers took six kids into state custody because of dismal conditions in their home, and officer Celest was part of the team. The baby who is believed to be around 7 months old was brought with its siblings by social services.
The seven-month-old child began to cry, and Celest swung into action immediately by seeking permission from the hospital staff to breastfeed the baby since she also was a new mom.
Celest said she didn’t doubt her gesture even for a second as she also has an 18months old child. One of Celest’s colleagues, Marco Heredia, took photos of the officer as she breastfed the baby and posted on his facebook.
Marco wrote “I want to make public this great gesture of love that you made today with that baby, who you did not know, but for who you did not hesitate to act like a mother,” the post has gathered hundreds of comments and thousands of shares on Facebook. People have posted a lot of things in a bid to thank the officer for her kindness. Some comments read ” thank you” others read God bless you and congratulations.
Let’s just say the officer’s act of kindness has made her social media famous, but that’s not all the reward she got. The minister for the security of the province of Buenos Aries, Cristian Ritondo, has promoted Celest from the position of an officer to a sergeant. The minister posted s Tweet thanking her for her spontaneous love and also attached a picture of his meeting with the new sergeant.
People all over the world have been sending their love and praising her for her courage to breastfeed another person’s child. This act of kindness is one that is rare and we are happy that Celest has become a good example when it comes to selfless service.
