(ABC News) — Adele made one young fan’s dream come true by visiting her in her home.

Adele, who is currently on her “25” world tour, visited 12-year-old Rebecca Gibney in her home in Belfast, Ireland on Tuesday night.

According to her mother Tracy Gibney, Rebecca suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy, can’t walk or talk, and is tube fed. She also has recently became bedbound. But despite her health issues, Rebecca finds joy in Adele’s music and is a huge fan of the “When We Were Young” singer.

Tracy started a petition on after she found out Adele would be performing in Belfast to try and see if she could get the 27-year-old singer to send Rebecca a video message after her concert.

“[Rebecca] listens to Adele from she gets up in the morning until her bedtime,” Gibney wrote. “All I am asking for is for Adele to FaceTime we Rebecca or send her a video message, it would be her dream come true, please please help for my beautiful sick little daughter.”

Gibney had not heard back from anyone on Adele’s team in the days leading up to the concert, which is why she was shocked when the “Hello” singer showed up to her home to meet Rebecca in person.

“It happened!!! Thank you so much for liking and sharing everyone, I’m overwhelmed and couldn’t be any happier for my baby, still in shock,” Gibney wrote on a Facebook community page after Adele’s visit. “Adele is just amazing,” she continued.
