See Police Officer Cradle 8-Month-Old

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a jogger spots a missing baby and a Houston police officer cradles the 8-month-old in his arms. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Hong Nguyen was visiting Houston from Vietnam and  jogging when she heard the cries of a baby.

When she followed those cries, she found they were coming from little Genesis Haley.

The 8-month-old was still strapped in her car seat where a kidnapper had left her by the side of road.

She had been missing for about six hours after a man stole the car she was in from outside a gas station in the early hours.

Her mother had stopped to buy a soda, leaving the car keys in the ignition.

Nguyen notified police, who'd already been searching for hours.

"As a father, I'm just at a loss for words cause I love my kids and I just don't understand how somebody could do that," said Albert Pizana, the officer who responded to the emergency call.

And as heartbreaking as this photo might be, the image of baby Genesis being held by Pizana blanketed in a Houston police uniform trumps all.
