'Make-A-Wish' Kid -- Focused On The Dolphins

3/28/2011 5:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Make-A-Wish kid snubbed by celeb chef Ina Garten has MOVED ON -- in fact, we're told, Enzo is so excited about his back-up wish to swim with dolphins ... he sleeps in his bathing suit.

A family member tells TMZ, 6-year-old Enzo -- who suffers from leukemia -- has conquered his initial disappointment and is now focusing on his upcoming swim sesh with real-life dolphins.

We're told Enzo not only sleeps in his bathing suit -- but when he's awake, he spends a huge chunk of his free time learning to swim ... all to make his new wish a reality.

TMZ previously reported, Ina has officially REVERSED her refusal to see the kid ... after twice denying his request for a meet-up -- claiming she plans to call him today.

As of the time this story was published, Enzo's family had not heard anything from Ina.

You're an idiot - this kid is NOT being exploited. READ THE STORY - READ ABOUT "MAKE A WISH"!!! People like you are always trying to stir the pot. And you're not even intelligent!!

MUPPET, you're so right. The stupidity of some people never ceases to amaze me. They either can't read, can't comprehend, or more probably - both. PEOPLE ARE STUPID!!!!!

Ina Garten, aka the Barefoot Contessa, is NOT WORTH ENZO's TIME.

Good for Enzo for deciding to spend time with worthwhile creatures. Hope he has the time of his life with the dolphins!
