Why This Toddler's Christmas Gift Renders All Other Gifts Insignificant (VIDEO)

Miracles come in all size gift boxes

You can argue there is or isn’t a war on Christmas. You can observe that perhaps Christmas has become more of one long commercial than an actual holiday. Kids clamor for gifts. Parents long for a break.

But every once in a while a story comes along that gently reminds you what Christmas can really be about, which is a miracle.

Dallas and Chelsea Schmelzel have a 3-year-old son Kale with Cerebral Palsy. Kale has a manual wheelchair at home and a power one at daycare. They’d like to bring the power chair home because Kale has communicated his desire for more freedom and to choose to go place — around the house, to go out to the mall, friends’ houses and restaurants, among other places, but it’s too heavy to lift into the car.

A phone company, Telus, has been asking, “If you could give anything to anyone, what would you give?”

Kale’s mom Chelsea wished for a car lift for Kale’s wheelchair, and given the true spirit of the season, it seems as if there could be no more significant gift.
