Bailee "I wish to be a zoo keeper for the day"

Bailee - 16 years oldBailee feeding the hippos

Bailee loves animals and her one true wish was to be a zookeeper for the day!  Bailee, who has hodgkin's lymphoma, travelled with her family up to Auckland for a week filled with fun and adventure.

While in Auckland, Bailee had a great day at the Auckland Zoo feeding the animals and getting up close to them.  The staff were amazing, taking Bailee and her family around the Zoo, where she especially enjoyed throwing watermelons into the Hippo's mouth!  Bailee even got to visit Butterfly Creek and Rainbow's End during her stay, and she loved the time she spent at both places.

Bailee and her family could not than Make-A-Wish enough for her wish, they now have hundreds of photo's which are very precious and will be cherished for may years to come.

Many thanks to Air New Zealand, Ace Rental Cars, Heritage Hotel, Citylife Auckland, Rainbow's End, Auckland Zoo, Butterfly Creek and Make-A-Wish volunteers Jenny and Hannah.
