Dear Santa, Can I Get An Early Present?

So sweet! I hope my kids have this much heart:When Karen Suffern, a single mom from Rocky Mount, N.C., asked her 8-year-old twins to write a letter to Santa with their Christmas wishes over the weekend, she expected to see toys, books and clothes on the list.

Instead, Suffern was shocked to see a heartfelt request from her son, Ryan, that Santa Claus step in and put an end to the bullying suffered by his twin sister, Amber.

“Dear Santa … I wanted a [remote control] car and helicopter, but I don’t want that any mor. Kid at school are still picking on Amber and its not fair because she doesnt do anything to them … ,” Ryan wrote. “I prayed that they will stop but god is bisy and needs your help.

“Is it against the rules to give gift early?” he wrote.

Read his sweet letter here and find out what happened when she posted it on Facebook and it went viral!

I guess Santa probably has a Facebook account these days, right?

But I do have one question — are other moms already planning for Christmas!?

    One thing I found a bit troubling in the article was that the letter “allowed Suffern to open a dialogue with her children’s school”. Of course, I don’t know all the details, so maybe some of this was happening, but It should NOT take a letter to Santa to reveal bullying, If, as the article states, most of the bullying took place on the bus, the driver should have reported it to the school, and arrangements could have been made to remedy the situation. Ryan or his sister, or other bus riders not involved in the bullying, should have reported it to an adult. The elementary school I do some work in has posters on the wall that tell kids to report bullying to an adult. But it’s still a sweet story, and it’s good Amber has a twin who has her back.

    Christmas never stops, regardless of age.. and I say that because I have a 22 and 20 year old… and the requests still come in – early every year!!

    One thing I’ve noticed, Bristol, is that you and your siblings stand up for those who need it and your closeness to each other and family is undeniable. We’ve seen how sweet and loving Tripp is. I can tell he will (probably is already) Trig’s little protector.

    Awe, Ryan is his sisters guardian angel. Very sweet story. I know Tripp will be the same with his future siblings, Bristol, because he’s already Trig’s most fierce protector. He has a big heart, like this little boy. Palin family trait.

    The democrats just got an early Christmas present (fun fact Jesus’s name is actually Josh) with idiots like Cruz and Sarah Palin making fools out of themselves. Please let these two run on 2016…it would be so much fun for my side.

  • I have no idea all the reasons, very perhaps a couple of this served as advised, but It would NOT answer a page for you to Santa for you to reflect bullying, As long, because the content country, most of the bullying came about around the bus, both the car owner should include documented that towards the school, and terms might contain remained made to help repair the problem.

    Wow! What an amazing brother one who really cares for his sister!
