When Kaden's mother, Stacy,
first asked him about a birthday party,
he said no.
He came to me and said,
nobody would come to his birthday
if I had a party, and he didn't have
that many friends at school.
Mom Stacy Wilson went on Facebook.
She heard about
an Arkansas police officer
known for going above and beyond
the call of duty.
Officer Tommy Norman looks like
one tough cop,
but he's become a social media phenom
for his tenderness.
Officer Norman told his followers
posting “would anyone else be interested
in sending him a birthday card?”
That simple ask went viral.
Cards, gifts, food and people.
New friends ready to celebrate.
I had an amazing birthday.
It was a blast.
