Hugs in Houston: Girl on mission to show love to an officer in every state makes H-town stop
“I’m hugging the police officers. That’s what I’m doing,” said 7-year-old Rosalyn Baldwin.
Baldwin's mission is called "Rosalyn Loves." Her goal is to hug a police officer in every state. On her website, she said she wishes to, "Unite communities by demonstrating her sincere love and appreciation for those who have committed their lives to serving and protecting the people of our nation."
“God sent me on this mission of love,” said Rosalyn. “He said, ‘Rosalyn, you need to help these police officers.’”
“When she hugs them, hugs the police officers, they say that a lot, there’s something different in her hug cause she really means it and she’s really praying for them,” said mother Alicia Baldwin.
Rosalyn’s idea came to life after five Dallas police officers were killed last year. She also prayed for Houston residents during Hurricane Harvey.
