Wish Granting for Non-Verbal Children

Volunteering for Make-A-Wish Hawaii has been life-changing. I’ve seen a number of wishes in the past year, and I’ve learned that no wish experience is the same. Initially there were a number of people who asked me if I thought wish granting would make me sad, to which I replied it would actually be a joyful experience. What I didn’t realize at the time was how very true that statement would become.

Christopher had the time of his life from start to finish, and for that, I thank you. This trip, since he knew it was a possibility in February, has been the light at the end of a very long tunnel.

We are forever grateful to those who made our son’s wish such an amazing experience. His wish was to explore an active volcano and learn from the experts. He thinks that Kilauea is special; more special than any volcano around the world.
