Wish granted: 8-year-old gets to be a mommy for a day

One 8-year-old was inspired to be a mom for a day.

ST. LOUIS - An 8-year-old girl’s wish to be a mommy for a day came true on Friday, thanks to Make-A-Wish.

Savannah, who is currently battling leukemia wished to be a mommy for a day just in time to celebrate Mother’s Day.

Friday morning, she arrived in style in a limo to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis for her big day.

Once at the hospital, Savannah was surprised by a mini baby shower where her guests showered her with gifts, breakfast, and a manicure and pedicure.

Her day continued to Mercy’s Labor and Delivery to meet her new “baby” and receive her baby doll daughter’s official birth certificate. After, she was wheeled down to her postpartum suite to share the excitement with her family and friends.

She the learned how to properly care for her baby doll, including feeding, swaddling, and bathing.

For mommy and daughter fun, Savannah and her baby doll went to the Magic House and will end her day with ice cream before traveling home with her new baby doll.
