A mother from Suffolk, Virginia, has come up with a perfect solution for families of parents who work in the military or as first responders, and who may miss out on Christmas Day at home.
On December 11, Stephanie Lynn shared a letter she drafted from Santa Claus, in which Kris Kringle himself lets children know that “special deliveries” can be arranged for children whose parents might be away or at work on the big day.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
"As all of you know, the holidays can be a rough time for families like ours- juggling shift work (which I'm so glad Brent doesn't deal with anymore!), on-call hours, deployments, TDYs, etc. and "normal" holiday events can get quite hectic. And no matter what, our amazing kids just push on through, sharing their parent(s) with us all," she wrote on her post. "I typed up a letter from Santa Claus, just for these special kids, and wanted to share it with y'all, just in case," she added.
Lynn shared additional letters for families of medical professionals, divorced parents, and pilots and flight crew. Her post had over 52,000 shares at the time of writing.
