It came a week later than planned, but little Jasmina Anema’s wish was finally granted Wednesday.

The leukemia-stricken Manhattan girl met President Obama in the White House – and spent 10 magical minutes with him.

“It was like they were really best buddies,” said Jasmina’s mom, Thea Anema. “It was just how he spoke to her, like a daddy. It was so sweet. He was really relating to her.”

Obama also delighted his little visitor with a couple of gifts – a box of M&Ms emblazoned with his name and the presidential seal and a matching presidential yo-yo.

A still-glowing Jasmina wasn’t in the mood to discuss her surreal encounter last night. But she let her smile do the talking.
