A young girl is getting her Christmas wish this year thanks to one of Santa's helpers.

Four-year-old Emily is deaf and uses British Sign Language (BSL) to communicate.

Her mother, Tanya Andrews, took her and her six-year-old brother Hugo to see Santa Claus before the Christmas holiday, when an elf left a lasting impression on the family.

Boyeson was seen in the video at the top of this article, recorded by Tanya Andrews, using BSL to help Emily communicate with Santa.

Tanya Andrews took her children to Airmyn Park Primary School for the outing, in which school principal Natalie Dodds said the elf was hired specifically for Emily Andrews.

“Through the power of Facebook, we found Holly the Elf… and she offered to visit our grotto and interpret for Emily,” she explained to SWNS.

Mom Tanya Andrews said the experience was “magical” as she took her daughter to four different Santa meetings over the years and was falsely promised a Santa who knows sign language.

“Emily being able to communicate freely with the elf and tell Santa what she wanted was just amazing,” she said.

In the video, the girl can be seen asking for a doll, a doll stand, earrings and a ring this Christmas.

The mother continued: “After the experience, I started crying. It was so magical to see Emily’s face light up.”

Tanya Andrews said her daughter was a little nervous at first as she had never interacted with Santa before, but Holly the Elf helped encourage her to talk to Santa.

“For this experience, I was able to step back and record it on my phone,” the mother of two recalls.

About 466 million people worldwide have hearing loss, according to the World Health Organization, and about 34 million of those are children, according to the National Society for Deaf Children.
