PASCO, WA- You may want to grab the tissues for this touching story. With the holidays right around the corner and magic that seems to fill the air this time of year, we would also like to spread the cheer.

NBC Right Now's friends at Power 99.1 invited us along to reveal one of their "Christmas Wishes" Wednesday night. You may have read part of their story before. Just a few weeks ago, a woman from Pasco went missing and was thankfully found a short time later. Her picture and description circulated through social media in hopes to find her safe. 

However, she has some very special friends helping her out right now, who say she has been trying to get out of a domestic situation. They have taken in her three children, in addition to their own, in hopes her family can enjoy the holiday season despite the challenges life has put before them.

"We don't really know what is going on, we are just trying to keep them safe and take care of them. They are 2, 4, and 5, and there is a 12 year old also staying with us," said Zac Thomas, a family friend.
