Heroin Addict Recovering After Her Baby Gets Adopted by Police Officer


Crystal Champ and her previously unborn child were not in a good situation merely months ago, but a chance encounter with an Albuquerque police officer has changed their lives for the better.

Champ was behind a convenience store seemingly set to shoot up heroin together with a companion when Albuquerque police officer Ryan Holets walked over to them. She was pregnant at that time. The encounter led to numerous life-changing events — both for Champ and Holets.

Champ gave birth to a baby girl not long after the meeting and the baby was adopted by Ryan and his wife, Rebecca.

Holets, who already had four children, felt “led by God to take the chance.”

“God brought us all together,” he said, according to CNN. “I really don’t have any other way to explain it.”

Rebecca told CNN that the baby, who they have named Hope, is now “very healthy” and “very strong.”

As for Champ, she too has been doing well in the aftermath of her encounter with officer Holets.

The Florida treatment center Mending Fences took in Champ after seeing the initial report from CNN last year. Since then, Champ has spent most of her time receiving patient therapy and caring for injured horses at the center.
