Jesse and Jillian_480x239
You’ve heard of Make-A-Wish, right? That non-profit organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses. I always looked at them and smiled knowing what they do. I never thought my daughter would be a part of that but they changed our lives forever. You see, Make-A-Wish goes above and beyond to grant a wish that proves instrumental in the healing of children.
