Emersyn meets her favorite type of butterfly

“ As the butterflies took flight, so did Emersyn's spirits. ”

Emersyn was able to experience the joy and beauty of flight among the butterflies.

For 7-year old Emersyn, there is little more to love than butterflies and beaches.  Emersyn wished to visit San Diego where the butterflies migrate. Make-A-Wish® San Diego was happy to follow the butterflies and host her wish here, with the help of her home chapter in Maine.

Emersyn has Ataxia Telangectasin and although her rare genetic disorder affects her coordination and ability to walk, she was able to experience the joy and beauty of flight as she was immersed in a butterfly-filled experience at the Encinitas Monarch Program. She enjoyed learning all about the native butterflies’ life cycle, and watching as the sky was filled with her favorite animals. She even got to hold a little one on her head. She was so thankful for the experience to lift her spirits amidst the power of the butterflies.
