Before you watch, let me give you some background: There’s usually some delay between the time when an eligible kid makes a wish and then finds out that it will come true. Our wish granters have to connect with parents and medical professionals to make sure it’s suitable for the medical condition, age and others factors.
So there’s a certain sense of anticipation … “Will my wish actually come true? Can Make-A-Wish actually grant my wish?”
Now, you’ll get a chance to see the very moment when 11-year-old Darby – who is diagnosed with end-stage renal disease – learns that her wish to go to Hawaii will come true. Bonus points for creativity: Her parents wrapped the good news in a fortune cookie!
There’s no mistaking what this wish means to Darby, or that it will make her life better.
