  • Dear Santa,
    I am a very blessed boy
    with lots of toys to play with. I however just want one thing that you nor
    really anyone can give me. When I was born I was picked up on the newborn
    screening for a rare genetic disorder called glutaric acidemia type one. The
    doctors can only find one gene mutation in my blood work so they did a skin
    biopsy in October. We are still waiting in the results to see if I have it or
    if I'm a carrier. So here is my wish; for my parents to get my results before
    Christmas. Thanks

    Dear Santa,

    I want a iPod-touch for Christmas. And I need it so I won’t have to play with my mom’s phone. And I want a campus bag cup and hoody. They are pink with a blue paw print with UK. And last but not least Cookie my walking and talking dog that has a purple dog toy.

    Love, Allie H.
