A picture of uniformed Texas Deputy Constable Mark Diebold having a tiny tea party with a beautiful toddler dressed in blue will cause you to get a case of the “feels.” So too, will the story behind it. Officer Diebold helped to deliver baby Evelyn Hall last year, and as a result, her parents now call him “family.”

When Destiny Hall went into labor last year en route to the hospital, the Tarrant County police officer helped to deliver the baby at a Texas gas station. Evelyn, the toddler who has recently celebrated her first birthday, had a tea party photo shoot earlier this month with Officer Diebold, in recognition of that milestone, with the uniformed officer seated on a tiny white chair across from his adoring little companion, sharing an equally tiny cup of tea.

A delightful commemoration of their bond, her mom Destiny said of the photo shoot, “She loved clinking her little tea cup with him,” telling ABC News that Texas photographer Cyndi Williams photographed something special. “They had a bonding moment there for sure,” she explained. “Mark Diebold, without a doubt, is one of the most genuine, loving, thoughtful and caring [people] we have ever met,” Hall continued. “He is quick to think of others and we are so blessed to call him friend and family.”

On July 18, 2016, officer Diebold had been on his way to work when a car flew past him, obviously speeding. In an interview with NBC’s TODAY, he said that he flashed his lights to alert the car’s driver that he was going way too fast. When the officer approached the car at the next traffic light, Caleb Hall, Evelyn’s soon-to-be father, rolled down his window to explain that his wife’s water just broke and the baby was about to make its presence into the world. Moments later, while they were parked at a gas station, officer Diebold helped to deliver Evelyn as Caleb Hall caught his newborn daughter, and Diebold helped clear her airway.
