The Make-A-Wish Foundation brings a happy moment to a little girl in Connecticut with severe scoliosis.

I may not be a parent, but I still want what's best for the children in my life. I want as many of their hopes and dreams as is possible to be answered. I want them to experience joy. With that in mind, I sure can feel the love that this family had bestowed upon them recently.

Little Danializ Marquez of Hartford Connecticut just left for a trip of a lifetime to Florida with the help of the Make-A-Wish Foundation to meet the rescue dolphins that inspired the "Dolphin Tale" movies.

In a story reported by, Marquez has gone through 22-surgeries for her severe scoliosis. Danializ told the Hartford Courant,

I'm going to Florida to see Hope and Winter. They have scoliosis, just like me.

This amazing and strong little girl could teach us all a lesson about life, positive attitude, love and strength. She says the dolphins in the movies taught her to never give up. Make-A-Wish added to her adventure. Not only is she getting her wish granted of seeing the dolphins but she's also meeting actors from the movie and swimming with the dolphins before going to Disney World with her family for the rest of the week.

I don't know about you, but I just got goose bumps.
