This Sweet Santa Had a Special Surprise For a Deaf 6-Year-Old Who Visited Him

Sadie Adams got a sweet surprise this year when she met Santa.

The 6-year-old is deaf, which means that she often needs an interpreter to communicate with other people, SBS News reported. This year, however, Police Chief Salvatore Albert, who’s been Westminster, Massachusetts’s Santa for over a decade, had Sadie’s mom, Ronelle Adams, teach him enough American Sign Language to be able to surprise Sadie.

She literally stopped dead in her tracks and she just stared at him,” Adams told SBS.
