A wish is just the beginning for many wish children. For Camron of Glenrock, Wyoming his wish trip to meet Woody and Buzz Lightyear at Disneyland was the beginning of a new journey with his adoptive family. After eleven years in the foster care system, Camron traveled to his very first amusement park and met some of his favorite television characters along the way.
Camron’s mother had never seen him smile in the way he did on his trip. From ear to ear, Camron grinned as he shook hands with Transformers, received a high-five from Shrek, and threw his hands in the air on all the themed rides. He soared through Space Mountain and found his favorite ride in Radiator Springs with the “Cars” characters. Scooby Doo and Shaggy stole the show, of course, and quickly became Camron’s best character encounter while in California.
“He was so proud to take his family on his Make-A-Wish trip,” said his mother when they returned home. Lots of joy was shared within Camron’s family and his mother expressed that the “the happiness [that was] brought to him melts our hearts.” Camron’s wish trip was full of new beginnings and experiences for a young man ready to conquer all obstacles.
