Facebook Post Leads To Christmas Compassion

A surprising Santa came to the aid of a Hendersonville mom hoping for a Christmas miracle.

"It came out of nowhere, I never had anyone give me-- especially new stuff," Kali Hoots says. She has two little girls and one boy due in less than a week.

A woman saw Kali's post on the Hendersonville Yard Sales Facebook page asking for donations for the baby on the way. Kali expected some used items, but got more than she bargained for.   

The donor says she'd rather remain anonymous. She identified herself only as "Grammy."

The stranger dropped off a trunk load of clothes, toys, diapers, and even gift wrapping paper. There were presents for both daughters as well as the unborn child.

"I was overwhelmed, I never had someone just do that. It was so special you know," She tells us. "She says anytime I need her, call her text her, and 'I'll be here,'" Hoots says of her new friend.

"Grammy" is a mother of four. She says years ago, a church once came to her rescue so she vowed to do the same. Kali says she considered adoption if things didn't improve, but the donation might be a sign of better times ahead.

"I didn't want to bring a child home with nothing," Kali explains. "And until the people on that site responded, now we have more than enough."
