Teri Roundtree- Wolfe City, TX
A child and the impact story that stands out is that of an autistic girl in our county, she is non-verbal and 13 years old. Her mother said she still believes in Santa. We made arrangement for our Santa, Mr. Bill Gaston, to deliver toys to this girl’s house. It was extremely uplifting to see the shine and surprise in the little girl’s face and eyes. As it came time for us to leave, the young lady looked at Santa and said, “Thank You”, and gave him a hug. We all choked back tears. Our crew, Santa, Mom… all of us. Our little non-verbal, autistic girl managed to find the courage to speak to Santa, it was amazing.
