She had always wanted to go and it just seemed magical to her.
The wish experience was SUPER FANTASTIC!!!!! The only down side was that it was soooooo much stuff for us to get into that we couldn’t complete everything & we had to limit exposure to the sun & she couldn’t walk as far and do as much w/the heat but we had a blast. We went to Sea World, Magic Kingdom, A huge water park, Universal Studios. She had a portrait drawn of her, we rode all of the rides back2back, went out for dinner. We stayed at Give Kids the World Village and let me tell you, that they did. At the village it was just as much stuff to do. We ate ice cream for breakfast, ordered yummy food, explored the whole village, went swimming late, parties. Her favorite part was EVERYTHING, having the bunnies tuck her in for bed, V.I.P. passes for rides/no waiting in line.
Who went on the wish with Aamaria?
Grandma Tinnie, La’Yonna(cousin/sister) & me Mom/Jacora
How did the wish impact Aamaria?
It gave her the memory of a lifetime.
That experience had a wonderful impact on me as her parent. We were free that week no worries. It was great to see her be a “normal” kid again & just enjoy life.How do you think the wish will impact her future?
I’m not sure if I can give a clear response on that one but one thing I know for sure is that the seed has been planted and maybe she’ll come back when shes older and volunteer/work and make it possible so that other kids like her can experience what she did and make it 10x better.
How is Aamaria doing now?
Awesome, my diva never left, back in full effect w/minor changes. She went to the survivors clinic at Scottish Rite in June of last year. She goes for her yearly follow-up this June 2017. Everything is going well. She’s your average teenager, growing as a young lady, getting ready for high school. She loves painting & yoga to relax. We continue to pray, give thanks and trust God.
