Tiny Dancer

Fiori was enchanted by the idea of being a ballerina, having attended a children's matinee of The Nutcracker ballet with her parents the previous Christmas. A pile of fluffy tutu's in a rainbow of colors were stacked in the corner of her room, and she was not dressed and ready for the day until she had tugged at least one on over her clothing.  Fiori's parents were more than happy to oblige this bit of fantasy, it being one of the few bright spots in the life of a little girl who spent more time in the cancer ward at the hospital than she did at home.  When the Make-A-Wish Foundation contacted her parents, there was no question what she would most love to do.  For one magic night Fiori stood on stage, eyes shining more brightly than the stage lights, as she danced on her tiptoes guided gently by the loving hands of the prima ballerina she adored.
