It's the red carpet treatment for 4-year-old Jordan Young, and joy comes alive for the youngster, who's wish is to go on a shopping spree. 

"We've been out on it since 10:30 this morning," said his mom Arvionka Young.

Although Jordan is thrilled to be in Toys R Us, it's not just all about the stuff. 

It's about the excitement beaming inside this little boy. His grandmother, Helen Bradley was moved to tears. 

"I was in tears. I don't think anybody else was. I am now too."

It's a brush with freedom that Jordan hasn't had in a long time. 

His mom says illness has kept him away from other people. 

"We've been in the house so long because his immune system was low. Now, he's had all of his heart surgeries and everything and they said just let him be free. He's enjoying being out with everybody. We've been having a lot of fun."

Jordan is not easily mobile in the toy store, but make no mistake - he knows exactly what he's looking for. 

"You know he's real finicky about his trucks. It's got to be the perfect truck, the right lights," Arvionka said.

The joys don't end with toys. Jordan get a personal visit from the the man, himself. 

Yes, Old Saint Nick made a personal appearance, just for Jordan.

Once he's done with the Toys R Us at the Outlets of Mississippi, Jordan will cap off his big day adventure with a trip to another Toy store, then Best Buy and probably...a good night's sleep.

The day has been made possible by Make a Wish Mississippi and its supporting retailers.
