Sam's Wish to Go Down Under!

Sam's Wish to go Down Under!

“ Sam hasn't been able to stop smiling!! ”


- Misty, Sam's Mom

For some children, wishes represent meeting someone who has inspired them. For others, it represents owning their very own playhouse where they can dream and play. For 11-year old Sam, his once-in-a-lifetime wish represents a grand adventure to be discovered and shared.

When Make-A-Wish Oklahoma volunteers met with Sam, he had some pretty big ideas about what his wish might be … coming from a family of travelers; Sam knew that he wanted his wish to take him somewhere he had never been before.  His magical wish location?  AUSTRALIA!  G’Day, Mate!

While visiting the “great down under” Sam visited the Great Barrier Reef, met the cutest baby koala, and explored the wild Australian coast!  Upon their return home to Oklahoma, Sam’s mom said that his smile “said it all” during their trip and wished to thank everyone for making his wish a reality.

We would love to thank our friends at Make-A-Wish America and Make-A-Wish Australia for helping Sam’s wish come true!
