WISH GRANTED - for sweet boy who finds peace from his daily struggles with Tourette Syndrome, Anxiety,OCD, severe short stature and sensory processing issues through art. Meet Eli.
Here is the wish we received:
Eli is a shy and quiet boy with a big heart. He has Tourette Syndrome, Anxiety,OCD, severe short stature and he also deals with sensory processing issues. Everyone who meets him, loves him. Going out into the world is sometimes hard for him, he becomes anxious of his tics, which in turn amplifies his tics, increasing his anxiety. It can be a vicious cycle that ends with an upset and exhausted little boy who sometimes questions why he can't be fixed and prefers being at home, where he knows he doesn't have to worry. It's enough to shatter our hearts into a million pieces. Eli finds relief in his tics and anxiety through drawing. He's an amazing little artist. He loves to make comics for his friends at school and will work for days on them. He recently started animating his own stories and comics until our computer stopped working. My wish for him is to have some type of device that he could continue his animated art, since drawing and animating seems to quiet the storm his body puts him through.
We are so happy to grant this Wish For Eli because we are positive it’s going to make a major difference in his life and well-being. We have selected this Picasso tablet for Eli which will be delivered to you tomorrow. Enjoy!
