Hi Irelandsmom Nice to see someone from IL. So glad Ireland got her wish. So sorry that there was misinformation from the wish granters, and that it caused your daughter heartbreak. So glad they allowed both grandparents after all. Thanks for the link - I look forward to reading about the trip, but it will probably have to wait until DH & Angel return to work & school - we are so excited that they are both off for 2 weeks.

So glad that his wish was granted, and that you had a great time.

Yay that you'll have your passports soon. We haven't applied yet, but have started the birth certificate process. I had to send for mine from CA, and had to have a notary sign the paperwork. Got that all done & sent. DH had to go to another county to get his, and our marriage certificate, and got that done last week too. Angel's is driving us crazy - when we were sent to St. Jude in Memphis in March for a bone marrow consult, we were told we needed her birth certificate (turns out we didn't), so DH made a special trip to get one before we left. He went ahead & got 2. Now we can't find either of them. We were living in a temporary house at the time, and have since moved to our new house, but took some things from the temp house back to the old house at the time of the move. We have looked all over both houses several times, but obviously we're overlooking something. I'm guessing they're both in the same place. May have to go get another one - that's a sure way to find the ones that are missing.

I am so far behind and completely missed the CL removal. Sorry it was a bit traumatic on the IV front (been there, done that too many times in the past nine years). It never gets easier.

I hope the birth certificates are found quickly and everything becomes clearer and details are worked out quickly.

Two weeks off together, what a HUGE blessing! May all of your dreams come true and may you have a truly blessed Christmas!

Angel's wish granter just called to say Angel's wish is being granted. She didn't have specifics, but said she knew it was a 5 (we know that isn't the Fantasy). We are very grateful that she is being granted a wish, but it was still very disappointing to find out that she won't be able to have her specific wish. We took it harder than we expected.

I've been asked about what I meant about it being a 5 - it's either days or nights, we're assuming days.

Angel wasn't trying to get a longer cruise, she chose this one based on what it offered. It's just discouraging, cause they grant much more extravagant wishes, and even encouraged her to ask for something like Australia. They say that just knowing they can make a wish brings happiness & hope to the child (and it did - researching the cruise activities made her happy, and helped her get through all of the disappointments all summer). What they don't say is how it feels to find out that you don't get what you wished for (broke my heart when she told me she wishes she had never made a wish, because it hurts so much now). Angel was recently left out of several other things (not wish related), so we were already feeling like we didn't matter.

I am so sorry Christi. We have been there in similar fashion and it makes you feel unthankful/ungrateful. I get it. It is isn't that you aren't thankful, you just wonder why some people seem to matter more. It does make you feel disappointed, you are human. I will say I have never heard of a wish cruise longer than 4 nights. They might offer them, I just have never heard of them. Would Angel want to change her wish? Is Australia (or somewhere else) something she would want? I hope once the initial disappointment abates Angel will be thrilled.

Thank you Judy. After reading here, we knew it was unlikely that she'd get the Fantasy, and we truly never thought we'd feel this way, but I guess we were really hoping for it. It's just been a year full of disappointments. It's rare, but we have seen reports on MAW's FB page of kids that went on the Fantasy. A Disney Cruise is her wish, and we know that she's going to love it. It would have been much easier if she had been able to make her wish in Feb. like she should have (they forgot to submit her name) because she would simply have said Disney Cruise, but she spent so much time researching & picking out this specific cruise.
