Although Disney World's Magic Kingdom is already a pretty special place, it proved to be so much more than that for one mom who had recently lost her daughter.

In a Facebook post, Janice Maureen Murphy shared a heartbreaking open letter to the theme park's Fairy Godmother, who showed her incredible kindness and warmth at a character meet-and-greet. Murphy explained, "Despite your utter lack of knowledge, you included the bear in our interaction.
