When The Children’s Wish Foundation told Olivia she could wish for anything, she didn’t hesitate. “That’s easy,” she said. “I want to meet Hannah Montana.”
Here’s how it happened for Olivia…
“I got a phone call today…” That was as far as JoAnn got before Olivia figured out the call was from The Children’s Wish Foundation. “She launched herself on top of me,” JoAnn recalls. “Both she and her sister, Alexis, were screaming and jumping and climbing all over each other. Their reaction was my wish come true.”
Just one month later, Olivia and her family flew to Boston to meet Miley and see her in concert. “The girls gave much care to what they were going to wear,” laughs JoAnn. “And when they saw the limousine that would take us to the meeting, they squealed with delight. They thought they were famous.”
But nothing in the world could compare to meeting Miley herself. Of all the millions of young fans, it was Olivia who felt Miley’s arm settle across her shoulders, and experience the radiance of a smile meant just for her.
In that moment, it happened. A promise was kept. A most special wish had just come true.
