I have a question about custody and Make a Wish. Four of our kids are actually my step-children, I just never call them that. We have 50/50 custody where they are with us one week and their mom one week. The wish granter just told me that they might not be able to come on the trip with us because they don't live with us full time. In a situation like this, what do they do? The kids literally have two homes that they are at equal amounts of time. I would feel horrible if we took my bio kids and left the other four at home. I just don't know if I'd be able to do it. My heart is breaking now. :-(. If they won't include them in the trip, would they let us drive and pay for their own park tickets but still stay with us?

So sorry she's sick. Maybe it's just a quick bug that'll pass.

So very sorry. Praying it works out for them to go.

This morning was unbelieveable!! The boys were totally surprised and a little shy at first. I figured we would only be at the radio station 30 min or so and we were there 1 1/2 hrs. It was so much fun to talk and see how things work! Carter is really excited for his MAW cruise. I will post more pics from today on his PTR!



He is a pic of all of us in the studio after granting Carter's wish.

Hi Everyone!

I was never sure how to get our trip listed on the main thread list. Here is the PTR thread I posted today: Helena's MAW trip

I have two PTR threads up because I am a dork and couldn't find the first one I did back in November. I thought I had maybe imagined doing it. Sometimes reality just doesn't seem real.

Anyhow. I figured since Helena's trip takes place next month (yikes!) that maybe I ought to get on here and learn from all of your trip wisdom.

Thank you all!
Paula

I think that I figured the pictures out!! but I am having issues trying to upload facebook photos because I take most pictures with my phone.
Here is my little Kara...I love her smile and everyone says she looks like a little me

We went to Disney on Ice last night - got home late but it was worth Kara's face when she saw all the characters! Also got a call today from her "wish friend" Kelly and they will be coming Sunday at noon!! So excited!

Laura - Thank you for the welcome! I can't wait to start a trip report! I am also going to read yours that you started! Since you are in Maryland i will have to post Kara dressed like a Baltimore "HON" - its cute!

Jackie - I am super excited about Trevors wish! My oldest son is a huge Star Wars fan and I took him to all the newer movies when he was younger. I really hope your Kara is doing well with her ear I showed my Kara some pictures of your crew and she thinks they are "sweet" (a saying she learned from scooby doo - another favorite).

Im a little nervous for tomorrow when they start Kara on chemo... not sure what to expect. I will try to pull Kara away from her obsession with coloring and for all of us to get some sleep. Thanks againfor such a great welcome!

Paula -
Maroo hasn't been on much lately to update the list.
I was following your first thread, and have switched to the new one.
Here's how to put the PTR link in your signature http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...&postcount=470


Sheri -
Kara is beautiful Glad she had such a great time at Disney on Ice. Yay for meeting the wish granter soon Praying for Kara's treatment, and peace of mind for you

Kara's beautiful - and you can see her personality bursting through in those pics!
Just wanted to give for tomorrow. I hope Kara does okay with her chemo. I am always a wreck on Ja's chemo days, even though she makes it seem like it's no big deal. Every single person has such different reactions, and there are so many different chemo treatments, and it can depend on how the person is feeling physically and mentally that day, it's really hard to know how things are going to go.

Jo - Yay for leaving soon Praying about the weather Sorry about the rental car. I searched this thread, and there wasn't any mention of Mears. If you do a forum search though, there are threads.

Here's hoping it's a quick storm! Or better yet, no storm. Or a little storm. Ok. Start again. Here's hoping you get on that plane and head straight for Orlando!
I can't wait to hear all about it!

Talk to GKTW about how Mear works and you should be fine. I've seen threads on here about it, too.
