The 12-year-old from Brooklyn, N.Y., has been forced to use a wheelchair after a sudden paralysis that has baffled doctors.
But when Julia, who is in the seventh-grade at St. Bernadette’s in Dyker Heights, had the opportunity to meet Pope Francis as he arrived in New York, she said, “I came here because I wanted to meet the pope, because I believe in a miracle,” CBS New York reported.
