That night, he wishes on a shooting star for a family with loving parents and a little sister and brother. But, it wasn’t a shooting star! It was Santa Claus, on his midnight ride. When Santa landed on the orphanage, the little boy went downstairs and sheepishly asks Santa if he could be loved and have a family for Christmas. The boy wakes up and realizes it was a dream. Or was it!!
