Jakya and Her Family Find Strength at Disney World

Jakya wished to go to Disney World.

“ This is the most awesomest week of my life! ”


- Jakya, 12

Adopt-A-Wish® Sponsor: Jewelers for Children

Jakya’s wish was to spend her 12th birthday with her family at Walt Disney World® Resort.

For her special birthday dinner she chose to take her family to Popeye’s for a fun-filled evening. Her sisters Jazmyne and Jordynn and brother Tony all had the best week of their lives! When asked what she thought of the whole wish experience, Jakya shared, “This is the most awesomest week of my life!”

Jakya’s mom, Naomi, could not believe how friendly and helpful the staff at Give Kids the World was, they even carried their food trays to the table for them at meal times.

The best part of Jakya’s trip was, for the first time in her life, she woke without coughing or gasping for breath. The family is seriously considering moving to Florida. The whole family is looking forward to the move so they can “give back” by volunteering at Give Kids the World.

Wish Granters: Janice Wightman & Mikayla Henderson
