RAYMORE, Mo. (AP) — A young girl with leukemia who asked for a playhouse in her backyard, but was denied after a homeowners association blocked it, will get her wish after all.

The homeowners group in the Kansas City, Missouri, suburb of Raymore met Thursday to reconsider a “barn-style” playhouse proposal it had turned down for not having enough details. It said in a statement that its board gathered more information after meeting with a construction group and the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Although several details still must be worked out, the group says 6-year-old Ella Joe Schultz can have the playhouse at her home.

Ella Joe’s father said his daughter, who was in a hospital Thursday, was thrilled when she heard the news and that it turned her day around.
