Noslin wished to dig for dinosaur bones

Noslin wished to go dig for dinosaur bones

“ The excitement in him
as he was describing his wish was amazing. ”

Nine-year-old Noslin lives with neurofibromatosis, a rare genetic disorder, 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.

Make-A-Wish volunteer, Georgia, found this out when she first visited him. The shy, reserved child has a great imagination and was eager to share his love for dinosaurs with her. “The genuine excitement in him as he was describing his wish was amazing. Although he’s faced with challenges living with a tough illness, he was completely immersed, coming to life just talking about the wish. You know he was coming from a place of pure joy,” she shares.

If thinking about his wish was exciting, it pales in comparison to the actual experience. His dad, also named Noslin, said it was a dream come true. “He had so much fun. He actually got to dig for real dinosaur bones. It was great.” According to dad, Noslin felt special knowing that he was able to dig with real scientists, and knowing those very bones he helped find would end up in a museum someday. It was an opportunity of a lifetime that will be remembered forever.
