MOLINE, Ill. (KWQC) – When Fabrey Morey, of Moline, Illinois went to open the door Wednesday night, she found a surprise on her porch.
“I was just like is this a joke? Like, am I seeing things like what?” Morey said.
It was a Christmas tree, all decked out, without a trace of who it was from.
“A very nice sweet, caring, compassionate person, you know, maybe somebody I do know that knows my story and just trying to make me feel better, but it’s hard saying who’s done it,” Morey said.
With the tree was a teddy bear and a letter that was addressed to her 5-year-old son, Gavin.
The return address on the envelope was Santa Claus at “The North Pole.”
“It makes me smile, it really does. It doesn’t make me feel like a Grinch anymore,” Morey said.”It’s just unbelievable that somebody would do something so nice and not want recognition. It’s like a good deed that they did and it’s just it’s really touching.”
Whether this “Secret Santa” knew it or not, Morey said this delivery came just when she needed it most, as she has been going through a difficult time, being temporarily homeless and living with her parents.
“When everything falls apart you don’t think there’s any hope, and then somebody shows you that there is hope,” Morey said.
She said this Christmas is looking bright, and now she’s feeling positive about her future, too.
“It makes me feel warm, that there’s hope for further good things to happen, you know, things are going to turn around eventually,” Morey said.
Morey said the following night, around the same time, this “Secret Santa” dropped off a storage container for the tree on her doorstep.
