Princess Gracey Enjoys Some Time in Disney!

Gracey, diagnosed with low-functioning autism, enjoyed a dream trip to Disney. She not only enjoyed being treated like a princess, she got to celebrate her birthday too!

Thank you from Gracey’s Family

Thank you to everyone who made this dream trip possible for Gracey and my family. Thank you we enjoyed Florida and the adventures we made as a family. As a parent of two children with low functioning autism it does get stressful and this week in Florida it was a stress-free week, and we were to spend time as a family. This week I seen my entire family smiling and enjoying each other and we have not had that in years. Thank you, Sunshine foundation and sponsors, for this wonderful experience and we will forever hold this experience in our hearts, and we are forever grateful.” Gracey’s mother Kelly

Gracey’s Diagnosis

Gracey has been diagnosed with low-functioning autism. Autism Spectrum Disorder is defined by the CDC as “a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain.” Autism affects each person differently, and their ability to function can vary significantly. Low-functioning autism is a term used to define children and adults with the most severe form of Autism Spectrum Disorder.


We are very grateful to Adopt a Dream donors and a very generous private donor, who made Gracey’s dream come true!
