Today is World Wish Day!
Today is a celebration of the very first wish granted which marked the beginning of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Since that day, Make-A-Wish has grown to an international organization of almost 25,000 volunteers dedicated to granting wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
The best way I can share just what the Make-A-Wish foundation means to these children and their families is to share the experience of my own daughter who was granted her wish last year. Unfortunately, due to having a newborn and some medical issues in the family, I haven’t had the time to write her story for this special day.
I will attempt to post my daughter’s story soon, but in the mean time I will share this special video of of a boy who got his wish to spend the day with Michael Jordan:
