4-year-old Alyssa Brown visited Snow White’s wishing well at California’s Disneyland theme park with only one wish in her mind. ‘I wish with all my heart that my daddy would come home,’ she said in regards to her father who was serving in Afghanistan. Covering both her eyes over the well’s edge Alyssa opened her eyes to see her father, Marine Lt. Scott Brown, down on one knee before her. It was a touching moment for everyone involved and it lived up to the fairy tale ending only Disney can deliver (the good side of Disney that is).
Grasping the success of such a magical well, Alyssa told her parents she already had her next wish ready. “My next wish is for a puppy!”, her mother said of her daughter’s wish. ‘No, we’ve got a brother instead.’ Kids. You give ’em an inch.
