HOUSTON – A 12-year-old boy says he just wants to see his mom happy and healthy this Christmas.

Firefighters in Channelview, Texas were touched when they read Arnulfo Guerra Jr.’s letter to Santa this year. He asked Santa for a heart transplant for his mom. KTRK shared his touching note online.

“Dear Santa,

I believe in you and the miracles, Santa I don’t want toys for me, only I want a (healthy) heart for my mom, she’s sick, her diagnostic is transposition of the great (arteries) (T.G.A). I’m sad for her she’s 46 years and I only 12, next March 18 I will be 13 teen, we need her for many years more, me and my Dad pray all days for mom. Only I want is to see my mom (healthy) and happy.

Thanks Santa,
Love you!!”

Channelview firefighters visited Guerra’s family on Friday to surprise them with gifts. His mom was moved to tears when she learned her son’s Christmas wish.

“He’s my angel,” his mom said through tears.

“We need her for many years more,” Arnulfo told KTRK. “Me and my dad will pray all day for my mom and all I want is to see my mom happy.”
