Noslin's wish to dig for dinosaur bones

Nine-year-old Noslin lives with neurofibromatosis and has dealt with more doctors and hospitals than any child should ever have to.

He is also a little boy who loves dinosaurs more than just about anything else in the world. So, for his wish, Noslin wished to be a paleontologist and dig for dinosaur bones.

The shy, reserved child was eager to share his love for dinosaurs with his Make-A-Wish volunteer, Georgia. She watched him come to life just talking about the wish. “You know he was coming from a place of pure joy,” she shares. “The genuine excitement in him as he was describing his wish was amazing.”

His dad said the wish experience was a dream come true for his son. Noslin felt very special digging for real dinosaur bones with scientists and knowing the bones he helped find would end up in a museum someday. It was an opportunity of a lifetime that will be remembered forever.
