We’ve had quite a bit happen on the Make a Wish Foundation front! I’ve not gotten to update much, but we have some girls around here getting very excited.
Back in November the ‘wish granters’ came out and talked to Bella about what her wish was. She wished to eat with the princesses in their castle. After we talked about specifics for a while (dates we’d be able to go, more specifically what she wanted to eat and where…) the left our house saying, “We’ll get started on making it happen!” It was like magic! Like we had rubbed a magic lamp or had a fairy godmother or something!
We’ve been in contact with them ever since, e-mailing back and forth about what the girls would enjoy and more specifics on our trip.
We are officially going on a trip to Disney World May 5th through the 11th! They have arranged our flights, our accommodations, food, and rental car. We just go, and enjoy the magic. Really. While we are there, we will have a meal with the princesses.
It is so surreal because we have done none of the planning. I don’t think it will seem real until we are getting off of the plane in Florida!
While we are there we get to stay at Give Kids the World Village – which looks to have enough fun stuff to do to keep us busy the whole trip all on its own!
Not only that, but they are having a ‘going away’ treat for the girls before the trip and are sending us to a little girl salon for them to have their nails painted and hair done. (Ha!) This is something I would have never ever done outside of someone else completely setting it up for us – but I’m sure the girls will love it!
I can’t wait.
I can’t wait to see their eyes light up.
I can’t wait to watch them marvel at the magic of Disney World.
I can’t wait to watch Bella experience something that she never would have otherwise.
And who is more deserving of a trip like this than our sweet five year old, who in her life has already conquered cancer and lived through foster care?
Pictures. There will be lots and lots of pictures.
