Make-A-Wish grants Ohio boy's wish to become a zookeeper

- An Ohio boy always wanted to become a zookeeper, and, on Sunday, his wish came true.

Isaac is a 5-year-old who had a heart transplant when he was just four months old, WSYX reports. He said he loves animals and wants to work with them when he grows up, but he got to do it a lot sooner.

Through the Make-A-Wish Foupndation, he was able to transform into a zookeeper at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. He even got to hold a few of the animals as part of his temporary role. 

"It's amazing,” Isaac’s mom, Belinda Stevens, explained to WSYX. “Just getting to see his eyes light up and just the excitement. When he's excited, you're going to see it in his whole body. His whole body shakes.”

To top off his work day, he even got to feed his favorite animals: the giraffes.
