Miranda Givens' excitement grows every time she clutches her boarding pass, and every time she opens her mouth.

Miranda says, "I'm so excited.  We are going on a plane ride to Disney World."

That's right Miranda is going to see the one and only Tinkerbell.

Miranda adds, "She's so perfect."

Allegiant Air bought her family the plane tickets, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation is footing the bill for everything else.

Rhonda Givens, Miranda's Mother, says, "This is an opportunity of a lifetime. This is basically the only vacation we've ever had."

Miranda's rare muscle disease makes it hard to travel.

That is why no one in this family has flown ever

Rhonda adds, "It's a day by day thing. It affects the muscle in the body. Some days we have good days and some days we don't."

Leg braces are making it possible for Miranda to see Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and the ocean for the very first time.

There is not even an ounce of nervousness in her tiny little body.

Miranda adds, "I'm really excited about flying."

The only thing that is not flying by is the time.

Miranda says, "I just can't wait to get there."

A never ending escalator, and a ticket counter are now the only things holding her back.

Rhonda adds, "I just think it was a miracle and we just thank the Lord for working everything out for us to be able to go."

Boarding the plane, Miranda now calls the people at the Make-A-Wish Foundation angels.

Miranda adds, "Thank you Make-A-Wish."

Her trip will wrap up in one weeks time.
