“A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” Amber is an eighteen-year-old client of Lena Pope’s Family Matters Counseling who loves all things Disney Princesses. When she was adopted as part of the Lena Pope Holiday Angel program, she requested a dress for her senior banquet. The wonderful Chapman family who adopted her offered to make her a custom gown, and rather than choosing a traditional “Sunday” dress, the idea was suggested to make her a Cinderella gown (as adult sizes are hard to come by!) When Amber was presented with the gown, along with a petticoat, necklace, gloves, tiara, purse, tights, and slippers, all of her wildest dreams came true. She wore the dress to school proudly the very next day. As a matter of fact, she never wanted to take it off! It was such an amazing gift to Amber — a gift she never would have been able to get on her own — made possible by some wonderful donors. They truly made her dreams come true.
