A Dedicated Dad Who Makes Her Daughter's Wheelchair Into a Princess Carriage

A dad who is very dedicated to his family makes a glittering wheelchair that matches her daughter's princess costume for Halloween.

Josh Jaconelli who stays with his family in Glasgow, a city in Scotland, had shared a video of his six-year-old daughter Ava on Facebook, where it shows that she is sitting in a wheelchair which is covered with glittering lights.

While talking to CTV News Channel Jaconeili told, the whole process took two days of making a princess carriage for her daughter.

Like any other kid, Ava also wanted to dress up like a princess and roam around and enjoy Halloween. But unfortunately, she was nil by mouth and was not able to go out for trick-or-treating, Ava’s mom Kayleigh Porter told CTV News Channel on Sunday.

So they wanted to take a step and do something especially for their daughter by this they just wanted to see her all lit up with the lights and even wanted people to know that how much love they have for Ava.

Ava was suffering from Aicardi syndrome, which causes problems like seizures and vision problems. According to Porter, at the moment when this video was taken, it was the first time Ava saw her costume.

“Not long before we had put the lights on she had taken a seizure and she was extremely tired. So we thought we’ll put the lights on and see how she reacts and her face was amazing.

“She was just so overwhelmed, she didn’t know where to look and it just brought a tear to both our eyes because she was so tired from the seizure. She was so pleased. Porter added.

The frame of the carriage is made up of a plumbing pipe, and Jaconelli placed them before decorating the wheelchair. The video was taken by his perfect dad on Halloween and was also posted the same evening.

Porter said, The next morning when they woke up, they were surprised by the love the video got. People had shown so much love through the comments and after knowing that the video has gone viral, it was amazing.

The video went viral in such that the views of the video reach more than 1.6 million times on Facebook, and the post was also shared more than 5,700 times.
