WAYNE, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Two disabled sisters from New Jersey made a wish several days ago, and it came true Tuesday just in time for Christmas.
As CBS2’s Christine Sloan reported, 10-year-old twins Tianna and Gianna Johnson are both legally blind. Gianna is also autistic.
This Christmas, they had just one wish on their list. Tianna said she told her mother, “I want a disabled dog for Christmas.”
Their present came early, wrapped in a red outfit. The affectionate pit bull, named Carmela, has the prettiest eyes imaginable.
Why that specific dog?
“Because I’m very different in school. I’m the only one who walks with a cane,” Tianna said, “and I wondered if I got a disabled dog, she would know the same feeling.
When asked what she wanted to say to other people who might not be willing to adopt disabled dogs, Tianna said, “They’re not much different — they’re just best friends forever.”
Until getting Carmela, Gianna rarely spoke. Now, she cannot stop talking about her new companion.
