How Beauty and the Beast's Belle Made This Young Girl's Dreams Come True (Prepare to Grab Some Tissues)
Here's a Make a Wish that is sure to make your day. A young girl from Houston had her dream come true when she had the chance to meet Belle a character from her favorite Disney movie. The 7-year-old named Daisy is a 7-year old girl from Houston diagnosed with Achondroplasia (a form of Dwarfism) from birth. The young girl recently made trending news on the internet with the heartwarming photos in which she's seen crying as she meets Belle, from Beauty and the Beast. E! News spoke with her aunt Patricia, and the story about Daisy's meeting is sure to make you cry. Her aunt says that Daisy has had to battle through surgery after surgery her whole life, including surgeries for her head, neck, legs, and back. So after watching her go through all of this, a thoughtful nurse at Children's Health in Dallas nominated Daisy for Make A Wish.
When Daisy was approved at the end of last year, the 7-year old decided to pick Walt Disney World in Florida as her trip, so that she could meet Belle. To make things even more adorable, her other choice was to meet Louis Tomlinson from One Direction. But the young girl wanted something she could share with her brother and sister. So Daisy and her siblings have been staying at Disney World since Friday, and on Sunday, she got all dressed up in her yellow Belle dress so she could finally meet her favorite princess. The photos show it all, at the moment being very emotional for the 7-year-old. Then, as they were about to get on with the rest of their day, Daisy's mom told Belle that she was the reason why Daisy wanted to go to Disney World. Princess Belle then decided to make the little girl's dreams come true and asked to take the whole family on a Tour of France which is part of Epcot in Disney World. Daisy was so excited and was cried when Belle told her she would take her on tour. Little Daisy was sobbing from happiness, and everyone around the little girl was crying, too. Belle continued because Disney characters never break character, but the princess almost started crying when she said goodbye to little Daisy because she was so touched. Needless to say, the moment was magical.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation made this exciting trip possible for little Daisy. Make A Wish is a non-profit organization that was founded in the United States that arranges experiences described as "wishes" to children with life-threatening medical conditions. To qualify for a make a wish, the child must be between the ages of 3 and 17 years at the time they are referred. It is the child's physician that ultimately decides whether or not a child is eligible. The foundation started from the inspiration of Christopher James Greicius. In the spring of 1980 when 7-year-old Greicius was being treated for leukemia. The boy aspired to one day be a police officer. So U.S. Customs Officer Tommy Austin befriended Chris and worked with officers from the Arizona Department of Public Safety to help plan a special experience to lift the young boy's spirits. Chris spent the day as a police officer, rode in a police helicopter, received a custom-tailored police uniform, and was sworn in as the first honorary Public Safety patrolman in state history. Greicius died soon after the experience, but his wish became the inspiration for the Make-A-Wish wish-granting organization.
