Little girl welcomed home after Make-A-Wish dream fulfilled

Jayra got to meet her favorite characters at Disney World

SAN ANTONIO – A little girl got her wish from the Make-A-Wish Foundation and made her way home Friday.

Make-A-Wish, Allegiant Airlines and the San Antonio International Airport all welcomed little Jayra home.

Jayra returned from a trip where she visited all her favorite characters at Disney World.

Jayra’s father said the family was referred to the Make-A-Wish program through a liver transplant coordinator.

“We’re going to go ahead and thank the organization, Make-A-Wish, for all the things that they do for all the kids,” said Jesse Gutierrez, Jayra’s father.

Jayra and her family said the trip was magical. After landing in San Antonio, the family drove back home to Laredo for a well-deserved day of rest.
