When children excitedly write letters to Santa Claus, many of them ask for the newest and coolest toy or video game. Why wouldn't they? They're kids.

However, one 8-year-old boy wants just one thing for Christmas this year.

Karen Suffern, a single mother of fraternal twins, asked her children to write their letters to Santa extra early this year so she could have enough time for save for their gifts, CNN reports.

When she read what her 8-year-old son, Ryan, is asking for, she couldn't help but cry. He no longer wants a remote control car and helicopter -- all he wants is for Santa to stop bullies from picking on his sister, Amber, who has a number of mood disorders.

Read Ryan's touching letter to Santa below:

Dear Santa,

My mom said to send you a Christmas list. I wanted a (remote control) car and helicopter but I do not want that anymore. Kids at school are still picking on Amber and it is not fair because she does not do anything to them and it makes me mad. I prayed they would stop, but God is busy and I need your help. Is it against the rules to give up gifts early? Can you ask Big Time Rush to come to Amber's birthday party? It will make her so happy. If you do not get them to come that is fine, just get her everything she asked for.

Thanks Santa,

Love Ryan

PS- My mom throws the best birthday parties. You can come if you want.

"Suffern explained Amber has attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and other mood disorders. She is an emotional eater and now weighs about 140 pounds. But she's never mentioned the bullying," KDFW-TV reports.

Amber apparently gets picked on by kids in gym class. The kids laugh at her, tease her and call her adopted, Ryan told his mother.

Suffern has contacted her children's teachers and reached out to the parents of some of the kids behind the alleged bullying. Hopefully, that will help bring an end to the bullying.

One can only imagine how proud the mother must be that her daughter has a brother that loves her so much that he would sacrifice all of his Christmas gifts just to help his sister.
