With Christmas approaching, people are not only thinking about what they want to get but also what they can give back. One police department has been able to give back in a great way and touch the life of one little boy in particular.
If you were to ask Morgan Steward what he wants to be when he grows up, he’ll give you the same answer that he gives everyone, a police officer. Morgan has a genetic disorder called spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type II, which requires the use of a wheelchair but he is determined to keep going strong.
“He always said, ‘Mom, I want to be a police officer, I want to stop the bad guys,’” Tangi Forman, Morgan’s mother, told Fox 5 News.
Unlike most kids his age, the 5-year-old’s dream became a reality.
Morgan got the chance to meet Covington police officers in October at an event for The Miracle League. The Miracle League is a charity that gives people with disabilities an opportunity to play baseball. He was also recently sworn in by the police department as an honorary officer. He even took an official oath with a very important addendum.
“I will remember to obey my mom,” Morgan vowed, “and keep my grades up.”
