Make-A-Wish Foundation hits home to me. It has a special place in my heart. It gave my brother his companion, his best friend, his helper, his dog, Maxine. She was the prettiest Golden Retriever you ever did see.
I remember the day they brought her to us. She was so pretty. We hadn't had a dog in a long time, so this was kind of a treat. It was like we gained another sibling. Every click of his electric wheelchair, every move he made, every single thing he did...Max was there. She slept at the end of his bed. She always laid next to his wheelchair.
And while I thought I had a photo of max on the computer, Max was around in the day when digital cameras were not the thing. So just imagine a beautiful reddish gold Golden Retriever :)
I am pretty sure each and every one of you has heard about BatKid. If you haven't just type it into Google and it'll be all over the Internet. The story of this young boy gives me so many chills, the story of what Make-A-Wish and San Francisco did gives me even more chills.
All in all, I am just saying what a heartwarming story this is. I am beyond positive how much it touched this little boy, his parents and entire family and community.
There are so many sick kids out there,
who just have a wish....
and whatever that wish may be
it is granted through Make-A-Wish.
