Domestic violence shelter shares heartbreaking letter of boy asking Santa for 'good dad'

By

Domestic violence is a huge problem in the United States. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner every single minute. That's 10 million women and men every year. 

A 7-year-old Texas boy and his mother recently found themselves temporarily living in SafeHaven of Tarrant County, an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence.  

It was at the shelter that the boy's mother found a handwritten letter to Santa in his backpack.
