I just think that Lucas and your family will remember this magical morning for the rest of your lives. The story is so amazing! Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. I am sure Lucas is still gushing about his once in a life time experience! Congratulations again!

I know finally!!! Life has been so wild and I am hoping it is about to slow down some. Hope to have the second part tonight.

Yes it is so funny because we watched the vedio and I tell him Chris look behind you and he turns around and says OHHHH!!! Yes it was one of the funny moments.

If I miss something please chime right in. I am trying to remember all of the little details. Things pop in my mind from time to time and I go back and write thiem down. Stay tune I hope to have more tonight. I just received an email from our Make a Wish in Kentucky and they are going to listen to the podcast today that you did. It was awesome.

I have had a hard experience with my youngest this past year; but, nothing compared to you and Lucas and so many others here. Thank you for sharing your story with us; sometimes it helps to hear the miracles of others.

I look forward to hearing the rest of this amazing and magical adventure that your family has taken! and your new friends are WONDERFUL! to be blessed with so many is magical in it self!

Thank you so much for coming along on our journey. It has been so wonderful!!! Part of the reason that it has been so wonderful is because of the amazing people on the boards. Our trip was so amazing because of our fellow dissers from all of the wonderful people from the Big Give, to the encouraging words and help from the people who are posting and also getting to meet the amazing Maroon. She is truly a blessing and we are thankful God has placed her in our lifes. It has been around 6 months since we started on the boards and I feel like I have alot of new family now. These people are an incredible support group.

I am glad you enjoy our trip report.

I promise I am getting there. Since I have gotten back I have been having trouble with my eyes. I thought I was just tired. Come to find out I just could not see very well. So new glasses are on order.

I know can you believe those pictures!!!! I just can not believe Maroo was right there when they posted that. It has been like that our whole trip. Even when she posted about the train tours. The engineer just read her post. It always seems she has be placed at the right place at the right time. I tell you it keeps going on. We went to DHS and went on our first ride (we knew Maroo was in the park and was hoping to see her but what are the odds) and guess who was getting off the ride "the incredible Maroo" and then the next morning we are to meet her for breakfast and was wondering were we would meet her and guess what we were getting on the Monorail and guess who joins us in the same car. It was Maroo. This meeting has been so magical from the beginning.

DAY 3 TRAIN TALK

Lucas loves trains and loves them so much that he wants to learn as much as he can about them. So he loves to hear people talk about trains. Ed took us under the Main Street Train Station to look at the pictures of the four steam engines that are operating at MK. He was giving Lucas a lot of details about the trains and Lucas just loved that. He talked to him about how they worked and the reason why Walt Disney named the trains the names that he did. So Lucas had several questions for Ed. It was neat to hear him to be able to talk trains with someone who could talk train talk with him. It was so neat to watch Lucas as he listened to Ed. Ed was so cool because he just gave Lucas all of the time that he needed to ask questions and talk. Then we were able to walk in the engineers rooms. Oh Lucas just loved that and seeing the technical side of the trains. He just loved that. That was amazing! This also gave us some additional time to talk with Ed. He gave us some more history of the trains. Lucas Dad and I enjoyed hearing some of the neat stories. Then we had two visitors stop by to visit Lucas. Two additional engineers stopped by to see Lucas. They signed his hat and Lucas was able to say hi to them.



Train Talk




Engineer Ed with the family

When we thought the greatest morning could not get any better it did. They told us that our transportation was coming and guess what they sent us An Antique Car. The car was being driven by the most amazing woman named Barbara. She was such a sweetheart and took such great care of our family. She is truly an example of the magic of Disney. Well they all were. It was so sweet to see the time that Ed took with Lucas and his questions. We loaded the car and off we went down Main Street. At this point they were letting families in that had breakfast reservations. So it was fun going down Main Street and greeting families. Then Barbara stopped the car and off we went to take pictures in front of the castle and back in the car to Toon Town Disney. They also shared with us that the car usually does not leave Main Street but today it was taking us to Toon Town. As soon as we stopped the car and unloaded we could hear something. And off went Lucas with Ed to see the beautiful Lilly Belle coming down the tracks. He was so excited to finally see the train. She was beautiful coming down the tracks. Ed then took Lucas off to see the train up close and personal. Again I knew that we would be able to see the train but did not ever think we could get up close and personal to the train. Well in the magic of Disney they opened the gate and we were able to get close to the train. Right there in front of Lucas was the train. How exciting. He is so overwhelmed at this point he was not saying much. It was a special moment seeing his face as he looked at that steam locomotive. There were more engineers to meet and more autographs to get. But it was so cool to see Lucas standing that close to the train and just to look at it. Oh it was so amazing.

Again we could of left and had plenty of magic and was very happy. But they had even more. Can you believe it. After that we were escorted by Barbara to see Mickey and Minnie's Houses. It was wonderful to be able to enjoy their houses without a lot of crowds. Barbara did share that is was magic because you will never have the chance to go to Mickey and Minnie's house alone. Barbara gave us a very quick tour of the houses and knew just how to pose everyone for the pictures. Which I was so very thankful because I just love pictures. So just wait for our visit with our special visit with some special friends.

I was directed to your report by longing2Batdisney. We have become quite good friends and we have a group of dissisters who only want the best for one another. I just read the entire report and am in awe of you as a mother to be able to express yourself so well when talking of your wonderful son and his illness. Prayers are a powerful source of energy and can see you through so much. I would certainly pray for Lucas' continued wellbeing and have nothing but good wishes for you, your DH and that darling Alex. This is a family fight and you are one strong family.

Ginny

Thank you so much for your words. They truly blessed my heart! I am so thankful for the power of prayer and how it has gotten us through this all. The people on these boards are incredible. When I started on the boards I was truly searching a site to help us better plan our trip. I had no ideal of what an incredible group of people that I would be meeting. It has become my support group of sorts.
You are right about a family fight. But I am so blessed to have my family. Thank you again for your prayers.

I had read Maroo's version of the story and it was great. However, I love hearing the story from your point of view. Only a mom picks up on the little things that makes her child's face light up. Your report is so detailed and this story is so amazing. Thank you again for sharing it with everyone!

Those were kind words to me and I thank you.

The truth makes it easy to be kind.

Maroo did such a great job telling our story that even as I was reading I got excited. It was like I could not wait until the next installment and I knew what was going to happen.

I wanted to include so much of the detail of that amazing 3 hour morning because I felt like so many had follow this journey with us and I wanted to take them along for the ride.
