Santa came in a different form this year for one Ohio boy.
He came in the form of an Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper.
Originally, it wasn't the most fortunate of meetings. It all started when Linda Miller of Chillicothe, Ohio was pulled over by OSHP Trooper Adrian Wilson a few months ago.
Miller's young grandson was in the car at the time of the traffic stop, scared and confused. Wilson went out of his way that day to make the child comfortable, his mom, Natalie, wrote on Facebook.
But their relationship didn't stop there.
Wilson had such a positive impact on the boy that he dressed up as a trooper for Halloween this year.
The trooper returned the favor, bringing the boy a toy police car for Christmas and posing with him for photos.
"Share away to give positive news to troopers and other men and women that work in law enforcement everyday protecting us," Natalie wrote on Facebook.

The aftermath- once everything set in and he realized what just happened ???? Thank you again Tropper Adrian Wilson ???
