When kids usually write their letters to Santa this time of year, they frequently ask for exciting new toys.
This boy named Blake living in Fort Worth, Texas, is breaking hearts all over the internet because of what he’s asking Santa for this year.
Blake is just 7-years-old, and he lives with his mom in the SafeHaven of Tarrant County shelter for domestic violence.
His mom found this note to Santa that he wrote, below, inside of his backpack.
“Dear Santa, We had to leave our house. Dad was mad. We had to do all the chores. Dad got everything he wanted,” Blake said in his letter to Santa
“Mom said it was time to leave and she would take us to a safer place where we don’t have to be scared.”
“I’m still nervouse [sic]. I don’t want to talk to the other kids,” Blake went on to say.
“Are you going to come this christmas [sic]? We don’t have any of our stuff here. Can you bring some chapter books, a dictionary, and a compass and a watch?”
“I also want a very very very good dad. Can you do that too?”
He signed his letter, “Love, Blake.”
Here’s what the SafeHaven of Tarrant County shared about Blake and his letter on Facebook:
Blake is a 7-year-old boy in one of our shelters, and his mom found this letter to Santa in his backpack a few weeks ago.
Thanks to your donations through Santa’s Sack, Blake is getting exactly what he asked for from Santa. But with 117 women and children needing shelter this holiday season, we need your help to make sure they have a safe place to stay throughout December.
