WILTON - A Wilton girl with epilepsy received the gift of her dreams this weekend.

Ella Wright, 6, walked into her brand new playroom for the first time Saturday morning.

Ella's parents say the girl has a severe form of epilepsy that keeps her from doing many of the fun things that kids her age do.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation has transformed her family's garage into a play space that's safe for her.

Ella's parents say this room will change their daughter's life.

The Make-A-Wish team says everything used to build the room was donated by the community.
