No words. Adele surprised a terminally ill 12-year-old fan at her home in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Tuesday, March 1. The Grammy-winning songstress, 27, took a break from her just-launched worldwide tour and stopped by Rebecca Gibney’s home after her mother, Tracy, created a Change.org petition to fulfill her dream of meeting Adele.
“I have a very sick daughter who [has] cerebal palsy, epilepsy, can't walk or talk and is tube fed, [and] she has recently became bed bound,” Tracy wrote on Rebecca’s petition. “She listens to Adele from [when] she gets up in the morning until her bed time. All I am asking for is for Adele to FaceTime [with] Rebecca or send her a video message, it would be her dream come true, please please help for my beautiful sick little daughter.”
Rebecca’s dream became a reality when the “Hello” singer visited her by her bedside on Tuesday.
“I am so blessed and thankful that Adele came to my home today 😘❤️,” Tracy shared on Twitter, along with a photo of Adele with Rebecca.

"It's amazing. I'll never forget it," Tracy later told BBC News. "And I do know that when Rebecca passes away she did get her dream come true."
