 10-year-old Leo has global developmental delay which affects all aspects of his life. The term 'global development delay' is used when a child takes longer to reach certain development milestones than other children their age. This might include learning to walk or talk, movement skills, learning new things and interacting with others socially and emotionally. Leo is effected in almost every way by his condition. He also has heart problems and has seizures. The opportunity for family activities are few and far between and the family rarely go out because of Leo’s anxiety. This means the family lives quite a lonely life at times, and as a consequence Leo’s siblings miss out on a lot so the dream holiday was special for everyone. We were very glad to receive Leo’s dream request.


In December 2017, Leo and his family went off to Disneyland Paris for 5 days. The family, Natasha, Frank, Serenity, Stephen and Leo, chose to go in December so that they could enjoy the magic of Disney and Christmas and celebrate Leo’s birthday while they were out there. On the day of his birthday the family had breakfast with all the characters. It was the happiest Leo has been in a long time.

 “Oh my goodness, what a magical experience, we can't thank you and Dreams Come True enough, thank you again.” Natasha, Leo’s Mum.
