If this isn't proof that anything is possible, we don't know what is!!
Just in time for tonight's trailer reveal of Game of Thrones season 4 trailer on HBO, we're about to tell you an AH-dorable story of a 7-year-old girl in Australia named Sophie who had one simple wish for Christmas. To have her very own pet dragon! But when
her parents Santa couldn't deliver, she decided to turn to science!!
Sophie wrote a letter to Australia's national science agency, CSIRO asking if there was any possibility of her getting her hands on a fire-breathing friend:
"Hello Lovely Scientist
My name is Sophie and I am 7 years old. My dad told me about the scientists at the CSIRO. Would it be possible if you can make a dragon for me. I would like it if you could, but if you can’t thats fine.
I would call it Toothless if it was a girl, and if it is a boy I would name it Stuart.
I would keep it in my special green grass area where there are lots of space. I would feed it raw fish and I would put a collar on it. If it got hurt I would bandage it if it hurt himself. I would play with it every weekend when there is no school.
Love from Sophie"
Awwww! We don't know what's cuter. The fact that she addresses CSIRO as "lovely scientist," or that she wants to name her pet dragon either Toothless or Stuart!
Unfortunately, the lovely scientists had some sad news and issued an apology saying they had no info on dragons.
But when Sophie's letter began to go viral, they decided they HAD to make her dreams come true and used a 3D-printer to make her an adorable model of Toothless!
Sophie's mom says now all she talks about is wanting to work for CSIRO when she grows up because scientists can make ANYTHING happen!
How cute is that?? Way to go, science!!
Ch-ch-check out the cute hand-written letters that started it all (below) as well as the process of creating Toothless (below)!
