It completely threw Santa off.

Julie Kay Ryff took her son Levi to see Santa...

And it turned out to be one of the most incredible experiences.

Her 2 girls and Levi all posed with Santa...

And each was asked what they wanted for Christmas.

After the girls shared their Christmas wishes, Santa asked Levi...

But being a relatively shy child, his mom spoke up on his behalf: "He doesn't talk much, but he's on the kidney transplant list, so he would like a new kidney for Christmas."

Santa was clearly shocked by this revelation...

And decided that Levi deserved a little extra Christmas spirit this year. After finding out what he did next, reactions came pouring in...

Santa sat Levi back on his lap, wrapped his arm around him, and started to pray.

"He hugged Levi and set him down," Julie said. "He looked me in the eye and squeezed my hand."

Julie was taken aback by the kind gesture and quickly teared up...

"It never ceases to amaze me how God puts people in your path to bless and encourage you when you need it most, and usually it comes in the most unexpected places and ways. I'm thankful for this sweet man tonight." What an amazing Santa! For more festive stories, scroll on for Hallmark's Christmas movie lineup...
