For most kids, Christmas time is about receiving gifts. Only a few understand that giving can be even more rewarding.
When Steve Dane brought his daughter, Taylor, to see Santa, he had no idea the emotions he was about to experience.
He had brought his kids to one of he favorite shops to see Santa, Bass Pro Shop.
He shared a video of the encounter on Facebook, where it quickly went viral. Instead of wishing for a new toy, Taylor spent her Christmas wish on her cousin, Ashley.
“This is my daughter Taylor who surprised us by telling Santa that all she wanted for Christmas was for Ashley Freihoff (her cousin) to be healed of leukemia,” Steve wrote in his post.
“Wow what a tear jerker to hear your daughter break down to the one she believes can do anything.”
It wasn’t his daughter’s request that brought this burly man to tears, though. Santa’s response was too much to handle.
“Santa then did something that was more amazing than what my daughter did,” Steve’s post continued.
