A California police officer is now a father of four after adopting a baby from a woman who is homeless.

Jesse Whitten, 33, of the Santa Rosa Police Department, was asked by the baby’s mother, whom he had met while on patrol, if he and his wife would adopt her child. Last week, the adoption became official.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I fell in love right away,” Whitten told “Good Morning America” about his daughter, Harlow, who is 7 months old. “She’s so adorable. She will cry if she needs something, obviously as babies do, but as soon as we would touch her, she’d immediately stop crying. She knew right away that she was safe.”

Whitten, who is also dad to Reese, 7, Kendall, 5 and Stella, 3, said he met the biological mother of baby Harlow last Spring while she was pregnant with the child. The woman was suffering from a drug addiction.

“Like a lot of people I’ve talked to, I heard about her life and her story,” Whitten explained. “I knew her [other] two children from the camp I had worked at for foster youth. When she started talking about them, I had an immediate connection with her just by knowing who her wonderful children were.”
