Brotherly love: Boy prays, writes Santa to help bullied sister
A Florida boy is trying to do everything in his power to help his twin sister, Amber.
Amber, a normal 8-year-old girl, loves playing with her friends and doing other 8-year-old girl things.
She is also bullied at her school because of her weight.
Her brother, Ryan, said it’s not fair and she doesn’t do anything to others who pick on her.
Amber used to hold in the hurt until she told her mother “she wished she wasn’t around anymore,” according to CNN.
Ryan did the only thing he knew to do that might help her.
He didn’t fight the bullies, he asked his mother if he could write a letter to Santa, CNN reported.
The 8-year-old boy didn’t ask Santa for typical presents like a dog, bike or other toys.Ryan’s mother said he asked her how to spell certain words through the process.
His mother told CNN she cried as she read his letter.
My mom said to send you a Christmas list. I wanted a remote control car and helicopter but I do not want that anymore. Kids at school are still picking on Amber and it is not fair because she does not do anything to them and it makes me mad. I prayed they would stop, but God is busy and I need your help. Is it against the rules to give up gifts early? Can you ask Big Time Rush to come to Amber’s birthday party? It will make her so happy. If you do not get them to come that is fine, just get her everything she asked for.
PS- My mom throws the best birthday parties. You can come if you want.
