A little boys heart-breaking Christmas letter to his father in heaven has sparked an online appeal to help make his wish come true.

The unidentified boy told his father in the letter that he was missing him in heaven and said he dreamed that he could leave him a note under his pillow.

It was found with the balloon in a private field in Dunfermline by Stuart McColl, who wants to find the child to give him the presents he asked for in the note, shared Daily Mail.

The letter reads:

“Hi dad, just writing you a letter to tell you I’m missing you and tell you news! I’m sure you know I’m in foster care cause mum is sick and my ear is blocked from Monday.

Tomorrow we’re leaving.

I really miss school and you. I know your up in heaven but are you safe?

Oh ya before I go here’s my dream and xmas list.

My dream is for you my daddy to put under my pillow that you wrote.

My xmas list: boots/studs, Astros, rebounder net, new Premier League ball, Real Madrid kit

Bye daddy I love you.”

The letter wad discovered in a blue balloon on a field behind Balmule House, north of Townhill.

“It really is the dream to find the person who wrote this note. It’s quite a unique story so hopefully someone knows something.” Stuart noted.


Very touching. We hope he can be found.

  • oh makes my heart hurt….do hope this lovely man finds this little chap, maybe the man could tell the boy he is here on behalf of his dad. Any how I am praying for a lovely outcome. xx


  • Poor little boy, tough growing up without a dad,


  • I hope he is able to find the little boy. That would be lovely.


  • how lovely of the man who found it to want to help achieve this little boys dreams/xmas list!

    I hope that there is a Christmas miracle and these two can find each other


  • Makes me thankful! I hope this boy with strength and hope is found!


  • Lets hope somebody recognises the writing and can locate the little boy. It says in the letter he is moving so that may make it more difficult to locate him


  • I hope he can be found too


  • Unless the child comes forward, I guess it will be very difficult to find who wrote that sweet letter.


  • A very touching letter,wishing the young boy all the best.


  • Aw bless ! Hope the wee boy will be located and his wishes can become true.


  • What a gorgeous letter. I really hope that the little boy gets his christmas wishes.
