Adam's wish to go to Walt Disney World® Resort

Adam, six, is a real live superhero. Diagnosed with Digeorge Syndrome, Adam has dealt with heart issues throughout his young life. He truly is a heart hero! Adam wished to go to Walt Disney World® Resort, and he was so excited when this wish was granted! He loved all of the fun, goodies and special attention to the wish process, and his whole family loved the opportunity to travel together for such a fabulous vacation. 

Adam’s mother, Theresa, took over 2,000 photos on the trip, including the ones shared here. During the trip she sent us a message saying that the trip would be wonderful even without leaving Give Kids the World Village! The family did leave the village though, fitting in Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Harry Potter World, a trip to the ocean and more. A wonderful time was had by all!

After coming back home, Adam was excited to show us some of the things that he brought back from Disney World, like his special t-shirts and Harry Potter wands. We are told that he loved everything on this special wish trip, particularly Harry Potter World and the Disney parades. Adam’s older sister, Grace, made it very clear that she loved the ice cream at Give Kids the World Village most of all!

"Adam loved the whole trip. His favourite part was meeting Mickey Mouse. He was so excited he was speechless. I have it recorded. So many great memories at Give Kids the World and on the plane when West Jet announced his name. It takes a lot to make me cry. There were lots of those moments. Thank you." - Theresa (Adam's Mom)

Thank you to everyone who helped make this wish come true, and to our special volunteers Lisa and Sarah from Belleville.

Thank you to Give Kids the World, Walt Disney World® Resort, WestJet, TuGo Insurance, Days Inn and Sony.
