The little Boy Didn’t Ask For Any Presents From Santa, He Requested To Help His Sister Instead

Pinterest Christmas is a time of joy, love, and togetherness, and what better way to spread the holiday cheer than Christmas gifts?

Every year, kids prepare a long list of things they want, hoping to wake up to presents stacked underneath their Christmas tree, courtesy of Santa. When you’re a kid, one of the best parts of Christmas is the idea of Santa Claus, who leaves you presents to confirm that you’re a good kid.

Sometimes, the new-age children’s wishes are a surprise to us. Their wishes are just more than toys, dresses, etc and there are some unusual wishes. This is one such story of the year 2013.

When Karen Suffern asked her 8-year-old twins, Ryan and Amber, to write a letter to Santa, she was surprised by their response.

Karen read the letter to see what toys her children asked for, but she couldn’t stop tears. Ryan asked Santa to stop the kids at school from bullying his sister, Amber.

Amber was in the third grade, who weighs more than Ryan and the rest of the children in their class. Unfortunately, she faced bullies every day with that.

In it, he wrote how he wanted a remote-controlled car and a helicopter, but changed his mind because he now has a much important thing to ask for, his sister not to be picked on any more. He explains that Amer does nothing to provoke her bullies and that it’s not fair for her to be teased. That makes Ryan really mad.

In the very first wish Ryan wrote… “Dear Santa… I wanted a [remote control] car and helicopter, but now I have a more important thing to ask for. The Kid at school are still picking on Amber and its not fair because she doesnt do anything to them…,.I prayed that they will stop but god is bisy and needs your help. Is it against the rules to give the gift early?”

(Forget the spelled wrong. He’s a cute little kid, after all.)

In his second wish he wrote, “Can you ask Big Time Rush to come to Amber’s birthday party? It will make her so happy. If you can’t get them to come but just get her everything she asks for. Thanks, Santa,”

Amber was a crazy fan of the Big Time Rush band, which was super popular in New York City.

Karen said, “Ryan handed me his secret letter and told me not to read it. No doubt, I opened and read it, to see what he needed,” “I couldn’t believe my eyes, ‘Oh, my god.’”

Karen posted the letter on her Facebook page to share with her family and some friends. Anyway, it went viral all around the world with many likes and shares. His letter touched many hearts. “It’s amazing and overwhelming at the same time,” Karen said.

“When ‘Good Morning America’ read his letter, one of his wishes came true with the help of ‘Good Morning America’!”.


When Amber talked to Josh Elliott, who is on Good Morning America, she told him that “some kids at school are mean to her, but she doesn’t understand why.”

During the talk, Amber shared with Elliott. “They say I’m fat. I’m stupid. I’m ugly. And I’m hideous. I don’t really believe them,”

“When Ryan said he’d rather have kids ask him for things instead of his sister, she said, ‘You don’t have to do that.’ ‘Yes, I do,’ he replied. Amber thinks Ryan is a fun, powerful, and protective brother. That’s why she was touched by his letter to Santa.

Surprise! Big Time Rush had a special gift for Amber on her birthday. They showed up when she least expected it, singing her favorite songs. She was delighted. And guess what? They were also invited as special guests to a weekend concert in New York.


Let’s talk about bullying.

Karen understood that her daughter was being treated terribly at school, and the little girl was sad about that. Karen said, “My daughter would tell me about the things other kids said to her at school.”

They would encourage her to do curious things, like crawling on the bus floor or eating things off the chairs. It is a pain for me because I worried, she might feel the way I did when I was her age. It looked like a repeating problem.”

When Karen was a kid, some mean people were cruel to her. She told her friend that sometimes she felt so sad that she wished she could just die. After that, Karen thought she didn’t want those bad feelings anymore, and she wanted it to stop.

“As soon as those words came out of her mouth, I literally felt my heart stop,” Karen shared her feelings. “I told her I would do everything I could to protect her.”


Karen told others that Amber had some difficulties with paying attention, feeling sad a lot, and having different moods.

Thanks to the letter from little Ryan, Karen got an opportunity to talk to the school about it, and it makes a miracle for Amber’s life.

Karen told me, “The school called and they’re supporting my daughter feel happy and safe.”

They changed her bus seat because most of the bullying happens there. Now, she sits with her older cousin. Today and yesterday, she didn’t ask to stay home, so that’s good.

Having a sister or a brother is a true blessing. They are always there for you when no one else is and they make it easy when things get hard for you. Share your joy, your sadness, your accomplishments with them.
