Emily and her own family are going to Disneyland nearly 3 decades after going with Jeff Gianola

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Emily was just a little girl when she was featured on Wednesday’s Child with Jeff Gianola. She was 12 years old and looking for her adoptive home.

She was among a group of children Jeff took to Disneyland for a special trip in 1992.

Jeff recently caught up with Emily via Skype. She’s married with 3 kids and lives in northern Washington.

And even after all these years, Emily still treasures the memories she made at the Southern California theme park. She even has a photo album of the trip.
