One little boy in Hong Kong even sent Safyre his favorite teddy bear and wrote, "Let's be friends."


Safyre is going to send the teddy back to Hong Kong, her aunt said, along with "a friend so he is not so lonely on the trip back home."

On Monday, she was even surprised with a trip to Disney World by the charity Baking Memories 4 Kids.

"I really think I am dehydrated from crying so much," Dolder wrote on Facebook. "This is absolutely amazing, it takes my breath away."

"We, my family and I, have been through so much darkness of this world. Then to see the most powerful BEAUTY of the world — the world coming together to make Safyre's wish come true is unfathomable," she wrote.

"All along we knew God saved her for a reason. Never in our wild dreams did we think she would move the hearts of many worldwide."
