Tears for fears

City Carrier Assistant Jordan O’Byrne was recently making deliveries in a Lompoc, CA, neighborhood when he came upon a toddler wandering around, accompanied only by a dog.

O’Byrne asked the little girl her name and if she knew where her mom or dad and her house were, and she did not respond.

The Postal Service employee took the child by the hand and knocked on several doors in the vicinity.

He soon located her mother, who had been desperately looking for her.

The woman tearfully thanked O’Byrne for reuniting them.

Employees featured in “Heroes’ Corner” also receive letters of commendation through the Postmaster General Heroes’ Program. The nomination form is available on Blue.
