A touching photo of a police officer is going viral for a heartwarming reason.

An image posted to Reddit Wednesday shows side-by-side photos of a little girl, and the woman she grew up to become.

In one photo, a little girl stands dressed in a police uniform, holding a stuffed police dog. The next photo appears to show the little girl, all grown up, dressed in a real-life police uniform with a German shepherd standing loyally by her side

According to a comment by one Reddit user, who says the woman is his or her sister-in-law, she is now a police officer in Laredo, Texas.

“Her dad is an officer, and obviously, as you can see, it’s been something she’s wanted to do her whole life!” wrote the Reddit user.
