Family Finds Balloon Sent From Little Boy to His Daddy in Heaven

Balloon Boy

A family in Monroe, Georgia discovered a deflated balloon in their backyard that contained a photo and a wish from a little boy to his father in heaven. 
"Dad, I wish you were here so we could have fun together. I wish you a Merry Christmas," read the note. "I hope you tell God to give me those presents. I hope you are happy in heaven. If you are, ok then tell me. I love you, Alexander."
Suzanne Edwards, who found the note, said she spied it in the yard but didn't know what it was at first.
"I saw an object in our yard and didn't know what it was," Suzanne said. "It was raining all day on Tuesday, so we didn't go outside, so we were able to retrieve the object this morning."

Edwards had very little information about the family and told Fox 5 in Atlanta that she wanted to meet the little boy. 
"I really want to meet this little boy.  It was such an intimate letter between him and his daddy. Knowing that I am a believer, I want to let Alexander know that heaven is a happy place and want to reassure him of that. What a better time of year than not to take your family for granted."
Earlier this week, Alexander's mother did contact Suzanne expressing thanks for sharing the story. 
"She was very touched by my post, and did relay its message to her son," Suzanne wrote on Facebook. "She said he had a tear of joy and was so glad to know his dad is happy."
"She called the experience a miracle," she continued in the post. "I am very glad that I was able to tell this story and connect with this family. I hope that God was glorified in the process. Merry Christmas to all!!!"
