A little girl's Christmas wish will come true thanks to some generous elves stationed right here in Oklahoma.

The 5 year old's letter to Santa somehow ended up in Chickasha.

The address on that letter was 25 Santa Claus Lane, and even had a sticker for a stamp. It was found mixed in the mail at Chickasha's school administration offices, simply addressed to "Santa Claus."

"And I'm just trying to figure it out," Susan Parr said.

Parr, an administrative assistant for Chickasha schools, was the first to read the letter that somehow traveled from Charlotte, North Carolina.

"Santa, please bring me three dolls and Legos, and a kitchen with food. Love, Amari," the letter read.

"Somehow I just realized we were lucky enough to be blessed by this little letter," said Parr. "Somehow it had made it here."

So, Parr and her co-workers decided to make this little girl's Christmas wishes come true.

"Our assistant superintendent was very instrumental in saying let's go for it, let's get her everything that she wants on that list. It was just a blessing to us," Parr said.

Parr began to do some research. She called Amari's school district with no luck, but through a property records search, Parr was able to find Amari's grandmother.

From there, it was on to Facebook. She found a Karen Caldwell who just happened to have a granddaughter, named Amari.

"She just couldn't understand how I'm sitting at a desk in Oklahoma reading this little letter from her little granddaughter," Parr said.

Parr and her colleagues had that play kitchen, her dolls, and Legos delivered to Amari's doorstep complete with a gift tag, "To Amari, from Santa Claus."

"This letter, it came for a reason. We're not sure what it is, but it was hand delivered to our desk," Parr said.

In a letter to Parr, Amari's grandmother expressed her thanks.

"I truly believe God carried that letter from my house all the way to Oklahoma and to you fine people. I did not expect anything to come of that letter. It was just fun for Amari to do. There are still lots of good, caring people in this world and you have reinstated that belief to me," said Caldwell. "Amari will be filled with joy on Christmas morning and my heart will be smiling for quite some time. You all will be in my daily prayers and this is something that will truly never be forgotten. God Bless You All. I will send a picture from Christmas morning when a little girl will have her Christmas wishes come true."
