Boy’s heartbreaking letter to Santa ‘only asking for love’ goes viral

A little boy asks Santa to find out if God loves him

It’s a time-honored tradition to write to Santa Claus.

But some kids don’t want the latest toy or a new iPhone — they just want to help their family pay the bills or to be loved.

A recent photo posted on Twitter of a letter to Santa from a little boy named Will is striking a chord around the world.

“Do you support the LGBTQ community and if you speak to god can you tell Him that I love him,” Will wrote. “…and if he loves me for being gay?”

This letter to Santa broke my heart.

Ima cry reading all these letters. Kids are so precious. I can’t.

The United States Postal Service had shared the letter, among others, ahead of their annual program, USPS Operation Santa. The other letters highlighted — all from years prior — show children asking for things like mattresses and money to help their parents.

An 11-year-old named Kayla asked for a pull-out couch.

“I have an apartment that only has 1 room and my parents sleep in the living room on the couch and they always wake up with back pain,” she explained. “My dad works a lot so his back pain stresses him out.”
