The internet is doing its ‘thing’ again. A child’s Christmas letter to his father has everyone looking for its author. It was found in a field, in Scotland, attached to a balloon. In the letter, the little guy tells his dad how much he misses him. Then, as any child would, he adds the wishlist.
The letter was found by Stewart McColl. His mission now it to help get the child his dream presents. ‘We spotted this really sparkly looking balloon and I thought at first it was litter, so I thought I’d pick it up – then I found this tiny little note.
He added: “This was just too sad to ignore. I’ve never done anything like this before but it’s a really tragic story so it would be great to do something to help this person who is having such a tough time.”
Its’ dated on December 1: ‘Hi dad, just writing a letter to tell you I’m missing you and tell you news! I’m sure you know I’m in foster cause mom is sick and my ear is blocked from Monday. What tomorrow we’re leaving. I really miss school and you. I know you’re up in heaven but are you safe? Oh ya before I go here’s my dream and xmas list. My dream is for you my daddy to put a note under my pillow that you wrote.’
