Francesca sent an update on the wish for Carlito.

" This is a just a note to show the gratitude the Division has for your donation to one of our precious children, Carlito. Carlito became so excited when knowing that his wish was being granted by you and could not contain his emotions. Being a teenager is difficult, but being a teen in foster care makes it more challenging. Carlito has experienced many difficult things in his short life and these little details are very significant for him. Having people like you that are willing to support adolescents in need is wonderful. On behalf of Carlito and the Division, I want to personally thank you for this gesture of love and compassion. "
