A Wish coming true….

Today, Make-a-Wish New Hampshire came to take John and the family to the Caribbean to fill John’s Wish of getting his summer back

Make a Wish picked up the family first, then surprised John at school.  Just before the school day ended, all the students made their way outside, with huge signs, big grins and so much spirit!  John and his first grade classmates were the last to walk out.  It was an amazing surprise!
