Melting to meet Olaf

Bentley wished to meet Olaf from the movie Frozen

Our hearts melted when Bentley finally got to meet Olaf.

Ever since Bentley first saw Olaf in Frozen, it was over. Bentley would watch Frozen over and over. In November 2015 Bentley was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis. While in the hospital for a week he would watch Frozen or "Bring Back Summer" sung by Olaf on YouTube. He received lots of Olaf things while in the hospital and so forth. We had heard of Make-A-Wish but never thought we would ever be a family of a wish child. It seems like applying for the wish, meeting Tegan and the wish volunteer happened so fast. We learned that a lot of children choose Disney as their wish so it might take some time. We planned to go in December of 2017 butt our wish got moved up to June 2017. It didn't feel real that we would be going and it wasn't real until we got there. Our hearts melted when Bentley finally got to meet Olaf in person and give him the warmest hug ever!

This wish trip impacted Bentley and our family so much that words can't even begin to describe it! It was a nice break from everything!

- Amber, Bentley's mom
