                   An Indian legend says that if anyone desires a Wish to
         come true, they must capture a butterfly and whisper that Wish to it.
    Since butterflies make no sound, they can’t tell anyone but the Great Spirit.
                      So by making the Wish and releasing the butterfly,
                   the Wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.

The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation has long been a supporter of a Wish with Wings and its mission. In June 2010,
they donated Rangers tickets for our Wish families to be their special guests at the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Our
Wish families enjoyed a night of baseball as they cheered on their favorite team to victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
We are incredibly grateful to the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation for providing us with the opportunity to offer our Wish
children and their families another unforgettable moment in time.
Below are just a few of the many photos taken last year that captured the joy and excitement our Wish children and their fami-
lies felt as they cheered on their favorite team. Go Rangers!

                             In April, our Wish children and their siblings were invited to our Wish House for an Easter surprise.
                             Thanks to our good friends at Sprint, over 100 Easter baskets filled with toys, coloring books, and
                             goodies were delivered to our office in an effort to brighten the lives of the children we serve.
                             Carefully inspecting each basket to find just the right one, the children quickly scampered through-
