Dad Transforms His Daughter’s Wheelchair Into Cinderella’s Carriage

Bippity-Boppity-Boo! As it turns out, this little girl didn’t need a fairy godmother to make her dreams come true: just a very creative dad. Even though stores like Target have started to sell costumes that are more inclusive and accessible to disabled children, some parents, like this dad, like to take the magic into their own hands.

Ava has Aicardi Syndrome, which is a rare genetic condition that is theorized to be caused by a chromosomal abnormality that alters brain structure. As a result, Ava suffers from seizures and vision problems. Most children with Aicardi Syndrome are diagnosed during infancy, with most symptoms showing before the child is five months old.
