"All I could think about was my child. I didn't think I was ever gonna see him again," said Belvin. "I just knew I had lost my baby."
Belvin frantically called 911 then waited some 8 terrifying minutes before Cornelius Belvin, 7, turned up safe near a Walmart.
Police say the man who took off with the boy didn't initially know he was in the back seat.
The driver's side door was unlocked and the car was running.
"It was fortunate when he picked the child up in the car he wasn't the type of person that would kick the kid out or do harm to the child," said Clarksville Police Spokesperson Jim Knoll.
With the boy's description, authorities found the man they believe is responsible.
Willie Cole now faces kidnapping and theft charges while Sharonda has found herself facing some criticism for leaving the boy in the car in the first place.
"He was very sick. he was throwing up. I did not want to take him out of the car," said Belvin.
The mother says she left the car on to keep the heater running and mistakenly thought the doors were all locked.
It's a mistake she admits could have ended in tragedy.
"That was nobody but god and my brother watching over my son," said Belvin.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
