A toddler is celebrating her first birthday by reuniting with the sheriff’s deputy who helped deliver her on the side of the road.
Deputy Constable Mark Diebold of Tarrant County, Texas joined 1-year-old Evelyn Hall for a tea party photo shoot to mark her first birthday. She was born in a gas station parking lot and was welcomed to the world by Diebold about one year ago.
“Mark Diebold, without a doubt, is one of the most genuine, loving, thoughtful and caring [people] we have ever met. He is quick to think of others and we are so blessed to call him friend and family,” mom Destiny Hall told ABC News.
Photos show Diebold and Evelyn clinking teacups at a table decorated with a birdcage and flowers.
Last year, baby Evelyn posed in photos next to Diebold’s badge.
The family has gotten close with Diebold in the year since Evelyn’s arrival.
“Evelyn’s birth has blessed us in countless ways, but our friendship with the Diebold’s is one of the biggest ones,” she added.
