Most kids write to Santa Claus asking for toys; but not eight-year-old Ryan Suffern. He asked if Santa could stop the kids at school from bullying his fraternal twin sister, Amber. He also asked if Amber’s favorite band Big Time Rush could come to Amber’s birthday party.
Ryan’s mom Karen was so touched by her son’s letter that she shared it on her Facebook page. The letter went viral and the family was interviewed on Going Morning America. Little did they know that Big Time Rush was waiting to greet Amber as an early birthday present.
This Thoughtful Thursday we commend both Ryan and Amber for taking a stand against bullying.
