Grace is an 11-year-old from Manchaca, Texas who suffers from a medical condition called dermatomyositis. Dermatomyositis is a disease which causes severe muscle weakness and inflammation.

After her doctor referred her to Make-A-Wish®, our team moved quickly to make sure Grace was able to experience her dream of traveling to the Bahamas to see blue water and swim with dolphins!

Grace boarded a plane with her parents, Sarah and James, and her siblings, Samuel and Jessiah, and the family began the vacation that allowed them to escape from everyday life. There were many things Grace wanted to do in the Bahamas, but, above all, Grace and her family made sure her most desired wish was granted. She swam with dolphins in the blue waters of the Bahamas and had a blast!

Grace wasn’t done discovering the Bahamas, though. Grace and her family enjoyed the caves in Nassau, a museum, and plenty of time on the beach. After spending a week in the Bahamas, Grace and her family headed back to Texas with smiles on their faces and many priceless memories.

Make-A-Wish is very happy to have met Grace and her family. A big thank you goes out to Macy’s for adopting Grace’s wish and making her dream come true.

  • Grace and her sister say thank you in the sand.

  • Hanging out with the pilots

  • Wish Kid Grace

  • Sisterly love
