After receiving Christmas presents from Donald and Melania Trump, a seven-year-old girl left badly injured by a tornado that killed her nine-year-old brother couldn’t contain her excitement.

In this video, seven year old Avalinn Rackley is filmed by her grandmother, Pam Moore, when she hears the news after her sister Annistyn was killed in a tornado on December 10 in Caruthersville, Missouri.

‘These boxes came in the mail, and they are from…President Trump! Both of these boxes. Can you believe it?’ Moore says as Avalinn grinned in expectation.

‘Oh my God!’ I’m so sorry,’ the brave little girl cried with a scream while wearing a back brace, matching Christmas outfit, and her dad, Trent Rackley, who suffered minor injuries as well like Avalinn’s younger sister, Alana.

As of now, Avalinn’s mom, Meghan Rackley, is slowly recovering from severe brain trauma, and has returned to consciousness after being in a coma for several months.
'We are so encouraged by the strength and determination you have shown during this very difficult time. You will remain in our hearts for complete care and comfort as you continue to recover,' the letter read

‘Donald and Melania Trump sent a package! The kids received hats signed by Donald Trump, blankets, American Girl dolls, books signed by Melania and Trump, pens, bracelets, and more!’ Moore posted a video of Avalinn discovering the presents on Facebook on Christmas Day.

A touching letter was also posted by Moore from the former president and his wife, meant to lift the little girl’s spirits during a difficult time in her life.

‘We are so encouraged by the strength and determination you have shown during this very difficult time. You will remain in our hearts for complete care and comfort as you continue to recover,’ the letter read.

‘With your steadfast spirit, and the unwavering strength and support of your wonderful family and many friends, your future potential is limitless.’

Meghan, Avalinn’s mother, is recovering from her injuries. The mother of three and kindergarten teacher said that she needed a miracle.

‘It made my momma heart so happy to hear her say my name. She is such a strong fighter. She is going to continue to improve each and every day,’ Moore posted about her daughter on December 23.

Trey, 37, and Alanna, 24, suffered less severe injuries and have been released from the hospital.

Having suffered severe brain trauma, Meghan, 32, was hospitalized in St Louis.

As her great aunt pointed out, Avalinn has been making good progress after surgery, but she still has a long road to recovery. For the foreseeable future, she will need to wear a back brace.

‘I keep trying to wake up from this nightmare,’ she said, adding that Avalinn – Ava – is in good spirits but ready to come home.

In a Facebook post, Moore referred to Ava as ‘the bravest little girl’.

‘She has won the heart of everyone in this hospital.

‘She has been so strong. I just know that her big sister Anni is right with her. I can feel it,’ she wrote.

Hooder noted the girls’ close relationship: ‘They were very close, obviously, just two years apart. They shared a bedroom.

‘There’s just so much tragedy involved in this.’

Avalinn and his family were discovered by emergency responders and taken to a nearby hospital where Avalinn said: ‘I was flying around in the tornado and I prayed to Jesus to take care of me, and he spit me out – and the tornado spit me out into the mud.’

Hooker said searchers found the doll that Annistyn is holding in the picture in a field near the Rackley’s house after a prayer vigil after the tragedy.

Annistyn called it Baby MawMaw, and Hooker said it was her favorite.

‘They brought Baby MawMaw to me, and I’m cleaning her up so that [Avalinn] can have Baby MawMaw,’ she said.

To help cover funeral, medical, and other expenses, the community has created a crowdfunding page.

Throughout her life, Annistyn, who had been suffering from a rare liver disorder, in which bile ducts fail to develop properly, had been full of energy and a joy to be around.

As a cheerleader, she often wore cute outfits, practiced cartwheels and the splits, and learned new TikTok dances.

Hooker described her as a ‘special angel.’

‘I would just gasp because she could do the splits all the time, and she would just laugh,’ the aunt added. ‘She loved dancing.’
