Very early on Wednesday morning, three-year-old Hope Lillian Trott made an incredible walk to the store after awakening in the middle of the night. Young Hope had thought that her mother was at the store buying pizza and had decided to put her coat on over her pajamas as well as her favorite red shoes on, that went with her Minnie Mouse outfit, and head to go find her mom.
The family lives in Maine, so the little girl had left footprints of her journey in the snow before arriving at the store, which wasn’t yet open. A store employee had arrived near 4 a.m. to clean the floors, when he saw Hope crying out in front and decided to alert the police. Seeing as she was so young, the officers traced her footprints back to her home, fearing that there might have been a home invasion.
Luckily, upon arriving at the Trott home, they were relieved to find the door ajar, but everyone else in the home sound asleep. And little Hope was checked out at the hospital, which assured everyone that nothing was wrong with the youngster, despite the weather being 29 degrees during her early morning walk.
