Everyone should have known something was up when Santa asked “y’all been good?”
Yet when Santa brought all of these 2nd graders in North Carolina the exact toy they asked for in their letters to him, the kids jumped for joy. All but one, that is – a little girl named Bethany, who wanted her dad home from Iraq.
Bethany’s dad, Wyndal Arnold, is an electrical infrastructure contractor in Iraq. He’s been there so much that Bethany and her father had only seen each other less than two weeks in the last two years. You can, of course, guess where this is going.
