Twins Blake and Blaine share their wishes with each other

Blake and Blaine
Blake and Blaine are the closest of friends, and it just so happens that they are five-year-old identical twins. As with most sets of twins, these boys share everything: the good, and in their case, even the bad. These particular twins share a serious medical condition referred to as twin to twin transfusion syndrome which has resulted in several medical complications including a negative impact on their nervous systems. The boys are non-verbal, but they communicate with each other, and their family, through expression and sign language.

A Brother's Wish Fulfilled

Wish Kid Luke Blog
The Make-A-Wish experience is one to be shared. It is of course all about the wish child, but at Make-A-Wish Missouri®, we believe that the wish child’s immediate family – who has been there every waking moment supporting their son, daughter, brother, or sister - deserves to be there when the wish child experiences the life-changing impact that a granted wish brings. We believe it is important that the wish child’s parents, who have spent countless nights worrying about their son or daughters condition, are able to experience the feeling of sheer joy as their brave child receives the news that their heart felt wish is coming true. We believe that the wish child’s siblings should be there during the moments of joy, and the moments of happiness that come with the life-affirming mission of Make-A-Wish when the wish is granted.

At Make-A-Wish Missouri,
We Work For Them

Braxton
Imagine a child.

They parade around, drawing attention to themselves with their infectious personalities. Sometimes you break and let them have ice cream twice in one day, but for the most part, ice cream is only for special occasions or weekends. You would never trust them to cook dinner for you or give the pets the correct medicine. You have to remind them to brush their teeth and push away their finger when it goes into their nose. It’s a while before they are able to dress themselves on their own in something other than a ninja turtle costume or a princess dress. You would never give them the responsibility of keeping track of your meetings for the week, let alone let them walk across the parking lot without someone holding their hand.

When Make-A-Wish® Missouri asked me what my one-true wish was, I knew I wanted to meet someone. I only had dreams of meeting people I admired. The first person on my list was Cam Newton because I always liked him and he’s my favorite football player.

The impact of a wish is a heavily implemented belief that we hold here at Make-A-Wish. The reason reflects the countless times we hear this from wish children after their life-changing experiences. It’s easy to focus on the wish kids because, well, it’s about them! However, there’s an overlooked truth surrounding the wish experience: the impact of a wish stretches far beyond the child. Though the wish is created by them and coordinated diligently for them, the wish experience ends up having a lasting impact on not just the wish kid, but all of those involved.
