It’s been over a year since we found out that Noah was nominated to receive a wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We were (and still are) extremely moved that one of Noah’s amazing, caring, and thoughtful nurses (aka angels) at Boston’s Children’s Hospital had nominated him out of all of the children they see on a daily basis.
At first, it was easy to choose Noah’s wish. His love for Cars and anything Lightening McQueen (ca-chowww) made it a breeze, but then we found out that Pixar (the creators of Cars) didn’t grant wishes. We had to go back to the drawing board! As 2013 and much of 2014 passed us by, we were still uncertain on Noah’s wish.
After almost a year of searching, it only took us one trip to Nashville, Tennessee to the K-Love Awards to find our wish for Noah…Mandisa. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Mandisa, she is an extremely talented and passionate singer. Her song, “Overcomer” speaks volumes to me and our family. She truly is an inspiration. Come Tuesday, our wish will be granted. Mandisa will be flying to Massachusetts, will sing to Noah and have lunch with us!
Watch and listen to Mandisa’s “Overcomer” video below. We are sure you’ll be moved too!
