“Angel really enjoyed being away from the house and out doing something”
Angel has always loved gospel and contemporary Christian music. Her favorite artist is Chris Tomlin and it was her wish to go see him perform live. Kids Wish Network granted Angel’s wish and arranged for her and her family to see Chris Tomlin perform live in Charleston, South Carolina.
Angel suffers from a severe form of spina bifida as well as hydrocephalus. Because of her condition Angel utilizes a wheelchair and underwent a posterior spinal fusion done to help alleviate some of her symptoms.
After arriving in Charleston from their home in Pineville, Angel and her family checked into the Holiday Inn Express Hotel. Tiffany and her family had adjoining rooms to allow them to remain close and comfortable during Tiffany’s wish. After settling into their hotel Angel and her family had a great dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. Angel felt truly special at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co as the cook and the manager came out to greet her and gave her a gift bag filled with books and other goodies. The staff even let Angel and her family pick out shirts from the gift shop.
They were also invited to attend the Holiday Festival of Lights but because of bad weather they had to reschedule. The next day Angel and her family went to the Slightly North of Broad Restaurant and had a wonderful dinner. After dinner, Angel and her family drove to the Charleston Gaillard Center to see Chris Tomlin perform. Angel and her family absolutely loved seeing Christ Tomlin perform and everyone had a wonderful time at the concert. Chris even played Angel’s favorite song How Great Is Our God which really made Angel’s special wish all the more memorable.
Angel loved everything about her wish and her mom said, “Angel really enjoyed just being away from the house and out doing something.”
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for making Angel’s dreams become a reality:
