A young girl with cerebral palsy is receiving some help from her big brothers to make her wish of becoming Santa for Halloween come true.
Anjulia Shupe was born premature in 2009. She was just 24 weeks old and weighed one pound and one ounce.
Shupe was adopted by a Grand Rapids couple and became part of a family of thirteen. Her parents had seven kids and found room in their hearts for four more, including Anjulia.
She uses a wheelchair to navigate which will act as Santa’s sleigh for her Halloween costume this year.
Helen Shupe, Anjulia’s adopted mother, says she is a smart kid with a sharp wit and winning smile.
This Halloween she is sharing her smile in the form of Saint Nick.
