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?
Sending Prayers and good Vibes your way that everyone will get to go!

Praying she feels better QUICK!

I spoke with our wish coordinator. She told me that because they aren't in the home 100% there's no way they can be a part of trip at all. The only way is if we ride separately, stay in an offsite hotel, and they can only go to the parks together. This is just horrible. :-(

Wow, i can't believe that. But i guess they have a certain rule book that obviously covers this situation. Makes me wonder if all the kids were present at the time of their visit, would they have ever known any difference, in regards to them technically not living there. I'm not saying you would of been dishonest, just not "volunteer" that they don't live in the house. But i guess this is all mute at this point. I've seen them include grandparents, but only when it was a child alone.

So sorry to hear this.

Oh, I'm so sorry That's odd that they wouldn't even let the kids stay at GKTW?!?!? Maybe it would bump your family into needing 2 villas instead of 1?
Ugh, what a horrible situation.

What a bummer! I know I have read that some kids , as a part of their wish, they say they want certain people, that do not live with them, to come on the trip. Grandparent/s, best friend, one girl wanted her oldest sibling who was in her 20s and they allowed it. Although that last one was a trip to Hawaii, not Disney. And she had a big family still at home so it was abou 7 or 8 people already.
How heartbreaking for you, to leave some kids out.

Thanks so much, I took her to the doctors today, she has an ear infection & maybe a virus. They gave her antibotics, will go back for a recheck in two weeks, we will be able to take the trip if everything is clear on recheck. We have only 15 days until we leave.
Thanks for the prayers, keeping the faith!!

Thanks, They said she had an ear infection & maybe a virus too, they gave her antibotics, praying she will get better soon.

I am sorry to hear about not being able to take the other children, I know that they have certain rules & each chapter has it's own, not all of them are the same. Maybe something will work out somehow for you.
You will be in my thought & prayers!

I called GKTW earlier and talked to them. It looks like there's a possibility. :-). I have to email them our custody papers but she said she thinks it might be able to be approved. I sure hope so. I think it'll be a while before we find out though.

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!






You have a beautiful daughter, she reminds me of my daughter Brook, she is 4 will be 5 soon, she had her wish in May 2011, she has Evans Syndrome, they say it is very rare, but I have discovered alot of people that have some kind of form of it, must of them are not exactly like my daughters though.

Your daughter, you & your family will be in my prayers.
