It is no secret to anyone that the Christmas season is especially adored by children, since the stories behind the celebration have a magical symbolism that allows them to dream and get excited in a very different way than adults. For this reason, the December season becomes the perfect time to surprise the little ones with their favorite toys, as it will become a memory that will always be in their hearts.
However, there are minors who from the depths of their being yearn for a gift that does not go with the social norms of their gender, which does not allow them to enjoy the festivities as they would like. This happened to influencers Mexican A certain Fredo, who at eight years old longed for a doll, but because of the perception of his sex and the stereotypes he carried for it, he could not freely ask for it.
But, although the magic of Christmas took time to arrive, finally, Fredo was able to have in his arms the Barbie that he always wanted thanks to the love of his parents. It was through his TikTok account @untalfredo, that the content creator shared the precious moment in which he opens his present at the foot of the Christmas pine tree, while his father tells him the following:
Sorry that until now we have delivered it to you
Crying at Christmas ❤️🩹 #navidad2022 #lgbtmexico #familia
♬ original sound – Un Tal Fredo
With great emotion, the comedian quickly throws off the paper that stands between him and his reunion with the long-awaited doll. When he finally discovers the toy, his eyes meet other small pupils that took him back 22 years in time, leading him to feel like a child again.
My eight year old self is crying a lot. You have no idea what this means, and not because I wanted to play with a Barbie in my 30s, but because of the moment of acceptance that comes with it. Today my parents told me ‘we love you, we accept you, we support you and we apologize for all the years you couldn’t be you’ without needing to use words. To all those kids out there, know that everything gets better and please never stop being yourself.
The comedian took the opportunity to send a message of hope to all children who do not feel comfortable showing themselves to the world as they are and accompanied the tender text with their recording, as a way of proving that everything comes in due time. The beautiful scene was soon filled with moved users, who took the opportunity to leave messages of congratulations and affection for the tiktoker.
Your potatoes healing your inner child. What level of family, what level of acceptance and love’; ‘Ah, your dad is so cute… she knows she was late, but she finally made it; ‘Just as it is a process for you, it is also for them. Late but sure, what a nice feeling’; ‘You made me cry. What an emotional moment.’
