Overview

This is a story about a little girl. An average twelve-year-old girl who wishes her Mom's dream would come true. A little girl who makes wishes as we've all done, from blowing out candles on a birthday cake to making a wish when we see a shooting star. Making wishes has originated from around the world throughout history in various cultures, leprechauns from Ireland, genies in a bottle from the ancient Middle East, and throwing coins in a wishing well from European folklore. And everyone can remember breaking a wishbone to get their wish which dates back to the Etruscans, an ancient Italian civilization. Wishing can also be associated to praying. After all, isn't praying just wishing directed at a particular being? There are those that would argue there is no comparison, but if a prayer is answered, isn't it a wish that comes true?
