Ryan Holets, an Albuquerque police officer, was on duty when he was called to the scene of a robbery, and the rest of the story turned into him gaining the nickname “guardian angel.”
When Holets got to the scene of the robbery, he walked behind the building and found a drug user, named Crystal Champ, and her companion getting ready to inject heroin into her system. He noticed she was pregnant and he immediately gave her some valuable advice.
The officer told the pregnant drug user, “You’re going to kill your baby.” Holets is heard on the bodycam repeatedly chastising Champ, who revealed she was “seven or eight months pregnant.” Holets, who appears to be writing a citation for the couple at the beginning of the video, continued to lecture Champ about her dangerous choices in life. “It’s not every day I see a sight like that,” Holets said in an interview with CNN.

“It just made me really sad.” It was during that life-changing moment that Holets decided to intervene.
“I just felt God telling me, ‘Tell her that you will do it because you can,'” Holets said to CNN. That “it” was the father of four telling Champ he would like to adopt her baby.
A news report on the amazing story is in the video below:
Officer Holets is a wonderful man for wanting to adopt this woman’s baby. It will not be an easy path though. Children born from a drug addict can suffer learning and behavioral difficulties that do not show up for years. But Officer Holets’ patience and compassion will give that baby girl her best possible chance at a healthy life.
There are many good people that know when to step in to help those in need, and Officer Holets is one of those special people.
God had a hand in this one for sure! Holets and his family are truly wonderful people for adopting this baby! May God bless them always and keep Officer Holets and his family safe.
This is a truly wonderful story, and Officer Holets has a terrific testimony to tell others who find themselves in difficult situations in their own lives.
Share this story with all your friends and family if you think Officer Holets is a true hero!
