Woodway boy's wish comes true

WOODWAY, TX - One Woodway family's wish has come true - having a custom made backyard for their two children who depend on their wheelchairs and walkers. 

The brothers have a life-threatening disorder that makes standing and walking impossible without an aid. 

But now Calan and Lawson Copp can safely and freely play in their own backyard thanks to The Make a Wish Foundation, the Tim Tebow Foundation and Chip and Joanna Gaines with the Fixer Upper. 

Their entire backyard is now wheelchair and walker accessible. 

The boys' mother Melissa Copp says, "They go through so much, they are such fighters and I love that they can have the joy that comes from being outside and playing."

She says, "How amazing it is to just relax and watch your children play in their own backyard, we have never experienced that as parents. We could not be happier."

The playground allows the children to play soccer, basketball and disc golf. Plus they can race each other on a race track. 

And if the weather's bad, there's the play house. 

Along with the backyard the inside of the home was made wheelchair accessible.

It was all featured on an episode of the Fixer Upper. 

Copp says, "We have not only the home of our dreams but that backyard that boys have been looking for their entire lives."

Calan might be just a little boy but he proves that he can dream big when he asked his parents for this backyard. 

To make his wish come true, the parents reached out to the Make a Wish Foundation. And that was just the start of the whole process.
