Charlotte, 5

"Children like Charlotte need a wish because it gives them hope...It made her forget about the bad times, living in the hospital, the needles, the pain, the tears - it gave her the hope that we couldn't. To have this wish made her believe that there is good to be found in the world, too."

Estela, Charlotte's mom

"The wish has brought so much joy to David's life. He now has something he can look forward to every morning. He can physically touch it, hold it and see it, and that brings him so much happiness."
