A trip to the mall or store Santa is usually filled with impatient, crying children and stressed out parents. However, it’s a rite of passage for many children and families during the holiday season.
For a child who believes in Santa, this visit gives them a chance to share their Christmas wishes with the jolly, fat man himself. It’s a magical encounter and it’s sometimes a surprise what different children wish for.
Often, they wish for a new favorite toy, but sometimes, they surprise everyone with a touching, selfless wish. Unfortunately, Santa can’t fulfill every wish, but this Santa knew just what to do when he was asked to perform the impossible…
Steve Dane, Taylor’s father, shared the touching moment on Facebook:
“This is my daughter, Taylor, who surprised us by telling Santa that all she wanted for Christmas was for Ashley Freihoff (her cousin) to be healed of leukemia. Wow, what a tear jerker to hear your daughter break down to the one she believes can do anything.”
“Santa then did something that was more amazing than what my daughter did… He has a hundred kids in line and I’m sure he has had kids all day begging for the toys they want him to bring. This man stops all the commotion and tells her he even as Santa does not have the power to heal but knows someone who can.”
Santa had something special in store for this little girl…
“Then Santa bowed his head and prayed with my daughter for her cousin. I am a big tough guy, but there I stood in my favorite store Bass Pro Shops, crying like a baby. Thank you, Santa, for showing my family and everyone there what Christmas is really about. I hope this amazing man sees this post and knows how much he touched my family tonight.”
This Santa knew exactly how to handle a very difficult situation. Hopefully, he brought this girl peace and a little bit of hope. Please share and keep this family in your thoughts!
