When Brooklyn's birthday rolled around she wanted to share a cupcake with her hero. She ran down to the corner when she saw his garbage truck coming, and signaled for him to come over and chat with her and her mom.

To the mom and daughter's delight, they discovered Dopson loves their Thursday exchanges just as much as they do.

"He explained that he looks forward to seeing us every Thursday as well. He said that he has a meeting every Thursday morning and always tries to get out of there in a hurry so that he can make sure to see us every week. He said he doesn't have any kids of his own, but he mentors several children and just loves them," said Andracke.

After chatting with Dopson, Brooklyn and her mom continued on to daycare. Brooklyn was unusually quiet and her mom asked if she was alright. "Mommy, I'm so happy," she responded.

And just when you thought this duo couldn't get any cuter -- Dopson came back a week later with some belated birthday presents for his little buddy.
