  • When we revealed Nora's bathtub, she couldn't wait to try it out! She put on her swimsuit and gave it a go. Instantly, we saw joy on Nora's face as she relaxed and had the freedom to move around without gravity being against her. 😍 Because of Peter Ranney and our friends at Team Depot, getting Nora into the bathtub is easier for her mom and dad, and she has a bigger space to splish and splash. 🛁💙 #WishAccomplished 🎉
