8-year-old Ryan Suffern of Rocky Mount, NC recently wrote a touching letter to Santa Claus asking him for help for his twin sister Amber.

The letter has gone viral ever since Ryan's Mother Karen Suffern posted it to Facebook. In the letter, Ryan asks Santa to stop kids at school from bullying his twin sister, Amber.

“Dear Santa ... I wanted a (remote control) car and helicopter, but I don’t want that anymore. Kid at school are still picking on Amber and its not fair,” the handwritten note reads. “I prayed that they will stop but god is bisy and needs your help.”

“Is it against the rules to give gift early?” he asks.

His mother Karen Suffern, says Amber is overweight and suffers from various mental, mood and attention disorders. The mom knew the kids were teasing Amber and knew it was taking an emotional toll on her.  She says, “it’s not my fault she is bullied, it’s the fault of the parents who don’t expect their children to treat others with respect just because they are different.”
