Yes, I agree. Every wish trip has something special that happens to the wish child...or at least most of them. On TOP of the fact that they get to go to Disney World for a week!!! This was definitely a magical moment for Lauren and her family!

Umm, on that note, we leave saturday for DL, so I sure hope you type FASTER! I cannot wait that long to hear about all the fun!
Uh...well...I doubt I will be done by Saturday... but, I will keep working on it! I am barely done with the first half of a day!

Yea, it is funny, most of the time when she talks about that day she mentions how good she looked before anything else. She is all teenager! The rainbow was perfect for her! She is a light to everyone around her.

So, I'm crying already, seeing how beautiful Lauren is. And, I mean that inside and out. Her personality really shines through in the pictures! THEN! I get to the part about the party and her name on the cake, and I have to get my kleenex, THEN you post pictures of the RAINBOW!!! Oh my goodness! I am glad no one else is home, because I am just literally sobbing like a little baby! How beautiuful and wonderful!!!

Thank you Mary for taking us along on your trip!

You are so sweet!! I am glad no one else was home. We really appreciate you...all you did to help organize the Big Give! We certainly have enjoyed all of the gifts and the effort that was put in to make them!

I know!! I was so excited when I heard about it. It seems like each child has that special moment that just happens! With no planning on our part. Those are the moments that are so fun to watch!!

Short Update!

Ok guys!

I PROMISE that I will put an update up tonight. I was helping Lauren last night and she is trying to get caught up from missing school for the trip...so we are helping her write so she can finish up faster! But, my next installment is ready to go on my computer...so I should be able to post it tonight!

Thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement for us! This trip was a trip and I can't wait to share the rest with you! I can't believe we are hardly through day ONE! What a wonderful trip.

Give Kids the WORLD!!

Most Make A Wish kids get to stay at Give Kids the World. Give Kids the World is such a wonderful place that I have decided to include a whole installment JUST about GKTW…so, no pictures of us…just some details (but no MAJOR surprises) about Give Kids the World.



One of the many gifts that we received while at GKTW was a book about Henri Landwirth. Stay with me here…Henri created GKTW. Which I guess anyone with a heart for kids could do…but Henri is special. His heart came out of LOTS of pain. He survived the Holocaust, both of his parents were killed and he survived unimaginable things…and out of this pain came a man that created such a WONDERFUL place for these kids.


GKTW is mostly run by volunteers. They have volunteers that do everything from landscaping to party planning. Lots of people have full time volunteer jobs at GKTW.

Here are some highlights…

You have the Castle of Miracles. This is complete with a carousel that is wheelchair friendly , lots of activities inside and a place to meet special characters (Mickey Mouse himself has even been known to make an appearance!!)



An Ice Cream shop with FREE ice cream…all day long …(and sandwiches, if you like that kind of thing)…



And a play area any kid would love…



with Putt Putt (the coolest one I have ever seen, by the way)...




…an arcade…pool table…boats you can drive…and a train.





And The Gingerbread House…where you get breakfast and dinner…every day… for FREE. Did I mention that ALL OF THIS STUFF is FREE!



And each family stays in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa that easily sleeps 5 people...it has a kitchen and everything!





This place is very “Disneyish”…and what I mean by that? It is just so magical. The decorations and construction are so detailed. And there are surprises behind every corner.

I mean…who could not LOVE a place that has chocolate covered strawberries as decorations.



Anyway…more about this when I tell you all about OUR visit to GKTW!! It’s coming….I promise!! You don’t want to miss it! Stay tuned!

But First....
What HAS Maroo been going ALL this time??
