There is a limit to the wish you can make. They can practically make every wish, but anything with firearms or hunting. And no, you cannot wish for unlimited wishes.

My personal experience with wish hasn’t been very eventful. I have thought about what I would do for many years, and I l’ve to travel so I want to go to Australia and possibly New Zealand. The last time I was at my hospital I talked about it with my social worker and she said to ask for the most because the limit can go farther than you think. The experience is different for everyone, especially depending of the age. I know for my wish I wanted to wait til I was older, so I would remember it, and I wouldn’t regret my decision.

It takes awhile to have a wish granted, sometimes a year, sometimes more, it depends.

That’s all for now, bye.
