What does a boy do when his hero shows up in real life? I can’t even begin to tell you how honored I was to be able to take part in capturing the wish of such a sweet child. You would have to be living on another planet to not know what the MAKE A WISH FOUNDATION is and does… so in case you are on said planet… MAKE A WISH a non profit foundation that grants “Wishes” to children who are undergoing difficult medical conditions or have a terminal illness. To be able to grant a wish to child is not only a privilege and honor, but also a moving experience for all involved. Caleb’s wish ended up delighting more then just him as his hero Batman came to his school in person!
With friends and classmates gathered around, Batman arrived in style, even bringing the Bat-Mobile out of the Bat-Cave. With high fives and cheers from the crowd, everyone was overjoyed to see Gotham City’s #1 hero live and in person…No one was more surprised then Caleb to find out that of all people, Batman was here specifically to see him!
With whispers in ear and words of encouragement Caleb got to meet his hero.
It wasn’t long before trouble followed as the evil Bane showed up to fight The Dark Knight, and for a minute there it looked as if evil was going to win.
Alas, Batman regained his strength to overcome Bane, but just as Batman was handing him over the the Vacaville Police Department…
Vacaville’s very own Chief John Carli reached out to Caleb for help. Together, Chief Carli and Caleb chased The Joker through the streets. They eventually caught him and Caleb locked him in jail! Good Job Caleb!
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard on making Caleb’s dream come true and for allowing me the honor to capture the wish of a very special child! I really do love my job, especially on day’s like this!
