Special Little Girl, Gets Her Special Wish

A little East Texas girl returned from a magical trip Thursday thanks to the Make-a-wish foundation.

2-year-old Alavia's's wish was to go to Walt Disney World.

The beautiful little lady, who suffers from a life threatening illness had her wish granted.

She spent six days away from painful tests and treatments in the Magical Kingdom with her mother, grandmother and baby brother all expenses paid.

Alavia's's and her family arrived back at Tyler Pounds Regional Airport all so thankful for Alavia's's trip.

Alavia's's mother says, "She got to go to the front of the lines and see the characters first so she didn't get tired and she just really had a ball. She just lit up the whole time."

Latosha says her daughter's experience at Disney World is one they will never forget.

This is the 200th wish granted by Make A Wish since they moved into their Tyler office in 1998.
