Amaya’s wish for a Teacup Yorkie puppy!
Age 12, liver transplant
A very wise person once said that man’s best friend is his dog…this same saying is true for 12 year-old Amaya from Denver. Amaya is waiting for a liver transplant and like any young girl, doesn’t have the most patience. When asked about her one true wish by Make-A-Wish Colorado, Amaya thought long and hard about what would make her truly happy. She loves the color pink, Justin Bieber and all things Disney, but decided that she wanted a teacup Yorkie puppy for her wish. “Puppies like to snuggle and give lots of kisses,” said Amaya about her new puppy named Lily Ruby. “I will have her forever to love.”
“We were all very emotional when Amaya held Lily Ruby for the first time,” said Laurie, Amaya’s mom. “We face daily obstacles with Amaya’s condition and Lily Ruby has given Amaya a lifted spirit and best friend.” Lily Ruby is much more than just a puppy to Amaya – she is a sense of security, positivity and love that reminds Amaya to stay strong each and every day.
