Adeline's wish for a play structure
When asked what she wanted for her wish, Adeline did not hesitate. Her one true wish was to have a play structure, complete with a licorice pole to slide down and a table and chairs that looked like toadstools so she could have tea parties with her sister!
And what’s a play structure without a wish party to go along with it? On the day of her wish, all of her neighborhood friends came over to celebrate, playing and laughing with her until the sun went down. Adeline’s wish to have a play structure allowed her to forget about her sickness and enjoy life like a five-year-old should. “I want to play on my play structure for 100 years and forever,” she exclaimed.
