A video posted on social media is going viral after an Oklahoma dad quickly thought to record a conversation between his child and Santa. In no time, Santa left the tough dad in tears. Steve Dane was excited to take his kids to see Santa but he did not expect the visit to take the direction it did. While his daughter Taylor was on pleasant old St. Nick’s lap, Steve overheard quite the unusual conversation. With barely any time to spare, Steve was able to flip out his phone and hit record before the amazing moment was over. Gratefully, Steve shared the sweet clip online where the post is now going viral.
He wrote, “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. Wow, what a tear jerker to hear your daughter break down to the one she believes can do anything. Santa then did something that was more amazing than what my daughter did… He has a hundred kids in line and I’m sure he has had kids all day begging for the toys they want him to bring.
This man stops all the commotion and tells her he even as Santa does not have the power to heal but knows someone who can. Then Santa bowed his head and prayed with my daughter for her cousin. I am a big tough guy, but there I stood in my favorite store Bass Pro Shops, crying like a baby. Thank you, Santa, for showing my family and everyone there what Christmas is really about. I hope this amazing man sees this post and knows how much he touched my family tonight.”
