Brooklyn Andracke, 3, has looked forward to seeing her favorite, awesome, smiley, garbage man every Thursday for about a year, and even drive around the neighborhood looking for him if they miss him at their house.
Every Thursday, my heart is full when I see the joy that our amazing garbage man brings Brooklyn when he honks and waves at her with a big smile, her mom, Traci, wrote in a .
WhenBrooklyn celebrated her birthday a few weeks ago, she said she wantedto give Dopson one of her cupcakes from her birthday, so they wrapped one up and waited for him to drive by.
When Dopson drove by, Andracke motioned for him to stop, and Brooklyn handed him the gift, which left him speechless.
I explained to him that he makes our day every Thursday, and we really appreciate the honking and waving, and how special of a day it is for us, .
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 doesnt have any kids of his own, but he mentors several children and just loves them.

My husband and I were just blown away, Andracke said. Im glad everyone sees the kindness behind Delvars heart and that he wanted to make our Thursday mornings special for Brooklyn.
“It doesn’t matter if I’m a garbage man or if I’m a CFO at State Farm. We all have to discover our gift and be effective,” he said. “I mentor children and that is the passion in my heart.”
