A little girl in Richland, Washington, got a sweet surprise from her mailman after he delivered on her special request. Five-year-oldAlice Aardalwrote a letter to the mailman, who she’s never met before, asking him to bring her a unicorn. Her mom,Melissa, says Alice believes the mailman is kind of like Santa since he delivers packages.
Melissa helped her daughter put the letter in the mailbox, but didn’t expect anything in return. And a week later, both mother and daughter were shocked to find a surprise for Alice waiting outside. The mailman followed through and left her a pink, stuffed unicorn, a unicorn puzzle and a note.
It reads: "Dear Alice, I spoke with the unicorn and we agreed her powers are too much for a little girl, but if you put enough love into this figure of her, she may come to life," and was signed, "The Mailman." Alice says she’s thrilled her wish came true and she left the mailman a thank you card and a charm bracelet she made as a token of appreciation.
