“ Meeting Winter was extremely special to Sadie because Winter’s prosthetic tail was made by the same company that made Sadie’s leg braces. ”

Sadie is an eight-year-old who is infatuated with the color pink, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and cheer-leading. While enjoying all of these things typical of a young girl her age, she also suffers from a condition that effects her nervous system and sense organs. Having experienced so much at such a young age, receiving a wish was just the thing to re-energize her family. When it came down to deciding on her one true wish Sadie knew exactly what she wanted. She wanted to go to Clearwater, FL to be able to visit Winter who lives at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

Sadie, her mother, father, brother and sister made their way to Florida for an entire week where they had a total blast! Sadie loved everything she experience with her family, but her absolute favorite part was when she was able to meet “Winter,” the dolphin from one of her favorite movies, “Dolphin Tale.” Meeting Winter was extremely special to Sadie because Winter’s prosthetic tail was made by the same company that made Sadie’s leg braces. This trip supplied a time for Sadie and her family to enjoy each other in an uncomplicated, exciting setting where they made memories that will last a lifetime!
