One 7 year old near Fort Worth Texas wrote a letter to Santa that is taking the internet by storm. “Blake” is at a shelter with his Mom due to threatening circumstances at home. The letter explains the situation through the eyes of a child.
The boy’s Mom found the letter and shared it with the staff at SafeHaven of Tarrant County near Fort Worth Texas. SafeHaven shared it Wednesday on social media and it is spreading across the globe.
Please note that his name was changed to “Blake” by SafeHaven to protect the family.
The letter reads:
We had to leave our house. Dad was mad. We had to do all the chores. Dad got everything he wanted. 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 nervous. I don’t want to talk to the other kids. Are you going to come this Christmas? 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?
