Dear Bobby

I’m sorry that your friend is going through such a hard time. Yes he is on my on my naughty list but I never give up on anyone. I want to share a secret with you. The only reason someone gets moved from my nice list to my naughty list is because they stop believing they are good. When this happens they stop caring and the naughty seeps in. He’ll be ok, just be his friend and help him remember he’s good. Thank you for your...

Dear Santa,

It’s me, Bobby. I’m sad today because my friend, Will, is really sick and doesn’t have a house or food. But you know what he says is worst is that nobody ever looks into his eyes. He said he wishes he had more friends like me and mom because his heart feels warm and he has a dignity. Santa, when someone is sad, and they ask for help, why do people pretend he's not there? You taught me to stay my heart open but more I see...

Dear Bobby,

When a person enters this world, and when he leaves it, the only thing he carries with him is his soul. The next time you see someone being unkind to William, remember that how people treat others is how they feel about themselves. If someone doesn’t feel connected to his soul, how can he be expected to care for others? We can’t change people, Bobby, but when we live with an open heart we make room for others to care. When...

Dear Santa,

Thanks for the Captain Compassion book. Mom and i read it every night. The best is how he turns mad feeling into super powers out of his chest to help other people, even the bad guys. Captain says when he’s angry it's really he’s sad. When i think about dad I get sad but i don’t want to forget him. I think I understand what Captain means to hold somebody in your heart. Its not like holding something in your hands. Its like...

2016 – Austin, TX

Dear Nicholas,

I was getting ready for work today when a strange flying creature began circling my head. I realized it was a bird from the planet Bobby’s been talking about and I followed it down the hall into his room. Bobby was sleeping with what, at first, I thought was a toy tree in his hand, but as the bird flew into the tree I peered in to see a tiny girl sitting on a real branch! I gasped as she waved up at me and tried to tell...

2016 – Chicago, IL

Dear Bobby,

I know this is a confusing time for you. You thought that being a Giant boy on earth would make helping others easier. But what you are learning right now is that your true power isn’t in your physical strength or your height. Your power is in your heart, just like Captain Compassion. No, you can’t create lasers from your heart to shoot out, but your powers are even bigger. Think back two years ago when you shared with me,...

Dear Santa,

The best thing happened! First I was feeling really sad tonight about how I can't remember what Mom's eyes look like anymore. What if Dr. Holland is right about her coma and i won't ever get to see her eyes again? I was holding Mom's hand explaining to her about how something super tiny has a power to move a star up in the sky. I was telling her how the microscope is teaching me to see how tiny things and giant things are...

My Dearest Bobby,

I just found these amazing confetti T-Cells you used to make for me. When I’d hear the hole-puncher clicking and you’d come out to help me sprinkle them on my head my heart would beam. They’d “hug my cells the way moons hug planets,” you explained. One time when I asked you to be careful not to sprinkle them on my bad cells, you said “you gotta love all your cells, Mom, especially the bad ones.” I didn’t think you...
