Need a little heart warming?

wishWhen a little girl (Alyssa Brown) visited Snow White’s wishing well at California’s Disneyland theme park, the 4-year-old made a wish to be reunited with her father, a Marine serving in Afghanistan.

She covered her eyes and said, “I wish with all my heart that my daddy would come home.”

With that, the little girl opened her eyes to see her father, Marine Lt Scott Brown, down on one knee and she ran into his open arms.

Since her father’s deployment, Alyssa and her 14-month-old brother Liam have held a ‘daddy doll’ that shows his picture on it as a means to comfort them while he’s away.
