Boy Doesn’t Ask Santa for His Own Gift, Requests a New Heart for His Mom Instead

A kid wrote a letter to Santa asking for a healthy heart for his mom, who was waiting for a transplant. Social workers received his letter, gave it to firefighters, and the firefighters immediately got to work.

Christmas is the perfect time to exchange gifts, spread seasonal cheer, and receive gifts. Children make a wish list every year, hoping Santa will bring them presents under their Christmas trees this year.

Despite the fact that kids can be demanding, a 12-year-old boy took a different approach when asking Santa for gifts. Kris Kringle brought him bounties instead of making a specific request for his cherished mother.

Arnulfo Guerra Jr. was not your typical teenager. Despite his mother’s serious heart issue, he had a pure heart and cared deeply for her. In the end, he hoped that his 46-year-old mother would recover quickly.

In contrast to other children his age who would never refuse gifts, Guerra’s only Christmas wish was to see his mother healthy.

A sensible Houston, Texas, boy decided to ask Santa for help before Christmas 2016. A few days later, he wrote Saint Nick an impassioned letter asking for help for his mother.

His emotions and worries were expressed in a letter to Saint Nicholas. The letter moved a social worker to tears when she read it unexpectedly.

During his letter to Santa, he expressed his belief in miracles and his lack of desire for toys.

A social worker wrote a touching message to firefighters in the Houston suburb of Channelview. The firefighting team was also deeply moved and decided to help the adorable child right away.

Soon after that, the firefighters arrived at Guerra’s house, but they weren’t the only ones. To make the family’s Christmas more joyful, they brought gifts. Katya Garza, a paramedic, told ABC News:

He should be completely unselfish and refrain from making any other Christmas wishes except for his mother’s health. “It really set us back, you know.”

Guerra received a bicycle for Christmas, along with other gifts that made him feel better. Also, his mother shed tears and expressed gratitude to the kind individuals.

The youngster described how he and his father prayed nonstop for his mother’s health. According to his letter to Santa, he didn’t want any toys for himself and believed in miracles. Only his mother’s happiness mattered to him. According to the heartfelt message:

The diagnosis of transposition of the great arteries indicates that she is ill (T.G.A.). I feel bad for her since she is 46 and I am only 12. It will be my 13th birthday in March.”

As a result of Guerra’s kind act for his mother, compassion spread, sparking a domino effect that made his holidays more enjoyable. If this story touched your heart, please share it with your loved ones.
