We're back now with good morning, sunshine and our series celebrating the best in people all around the country. I know, it may be spring but this morning we have a Christmas story that's guaranteed to warm your heart thanks to a very special secret Santa. Steve osunsami has that story for us. Good morning, Steve. Reporter: Good morning, robin. Most of the final when you message in a bottle or send a message to Santa you're not really expecting the universe to get back to you. This is a story about a set of twins who not only got an answer returned but made a new friend. He's the wonderful stranger who found a letter to Santa Claus from two little girls who live two states away. Hi, girls. Reporter: This morning, he's saying -- Good morning, sunshine. Reporter: It all began with this moment just before Christmas in the town of liberal, Kansas when these 4-year-old twin sisters wrote letters to Santa tied them to red balloons and released them from their home. Their mother knew better. It was like a message in a bottle but 4-year-olds Luna and gianella Gonzalez were truly hoping it might make it to Santa's workshop at the north It was a windy day and I just thought it was just going to get lost, get caught up in the tree. Reporter: But the message didn't get lost. One of those balloons traveled more than 600 miles in the wrong direction and into the hands of Alvin Bamburg near Shreveport, Louisiana, who decided he's going to be Santa's helper. I opened it and it was a Christmas list. I just had to do something for them. Reporter: Mr. Bamburg says the note melted his heart so he and his wife posted this on Facebook where the internet helped him find the mother of the twins. And with donations from family and friends he shipped the girls almost every present on their list. We did not expect it. It was a big surprise to us. Reporter: But there's one present the girls really, really wanted he just couldn't ship in the mail. A new puppy. Everyone, meet max. Reporter: He and his wife drove with max for several howevers to meet the twins in person for the first time with his biggest surprise yet. Come on, boy. Hi, girls. His name is max. Hi, max. Max. I think he likes you. Is this what you wanted for Christmas, girls? Yes. That's what it's all about right there. He's all yours. We are very blessed. Thank you, thank you for making my girls so happy. You will forever be a part of our family. Thank you. You're welcome. Irhear him say Alvin and they smile and that just means everything, you know. The world's been bad this past year so if you can make just one person smile, trust me, not only will it help them, it will make you feel so much better. Reporter: So to you, Alvin Bamburg, of Louisiana who decided to brighten the lives of two little girls searching for Santa, you're our good morning, sunshine. Mr. Bamburg, the girls and their mother now exchange texts, phone calls and they really now have a new relationship and, robin, this all started with a random balloon that was set free in the And I have to correct you.
