Every child in the world deserves to have a dad who can be there to share life’s special moments.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t always work out that way. 9-year-old cheerleader Addie Rodriguez is from San Antonio, Texas; she enjoys a close relationship with her father.
When he was deployed for training in California, Addie understood that he’d left in order to serve his country. Unfortunately, the little cheerleader was faced with a heartbreaking moment during the Parents’ Day ceremony at school.
The girls on the cheer squad were joined on the field by their dads for the ceremony. As the dads lifted the cheerleaders up onto their shoulders, Addie stood there by herself, missing her own father.
It was more than teen audience member, Matthew Garcia, could bear. Seeing Addie’s distress, this high school senior ran down to the field and lifted Addie onto his own shoulders so that she could participate with her friends!
This heart-warming story reminds us that helping others, even in small ways, can have a big impact on those around us. Matthew, you’re our hero!
