Wish us luck and prayers if you feel so inclined. Our "reinterview" with MAW is tomorrow. Talia's pneumonia had her sleeping most of today, hope she has a good day tomorrow! (Mild case, not contagious). So anxious about it all!

Sorry Talia's still not feeling well. Hope she's feeling better, and that the re-interview goes well. Hugs & prayers.

Yesterday was not a good day. Hubby lost his job. :-(. Now is not the time for this so praying he finds a new one quickly. On a brighter note, Ava is playing softball for the first time ever and hit a Homeric last night!!!!! :-)

Yes, the button from GKTW is the most important one while you are in Floridia.

So...The ladies from make a wish came and it wasn't at all like I thought. The Dr thought it was an inappropriate wish for Talia, MAW actually wants to send her. So we are going to work around it and either convince our Dr otherwise or maybe check with one of her other ones. Still fighting, but at least its winnable.

Charolott -Sorry the Dr. isn't onboard with Talia's wish. Glad MAW still wants to send her. Praying you can get Dr. approval.

LittleEsMom - Don't freak out about the button. Perhaps your chapter just doesn't do them. Just ask your Wish Granter - sometimes they get buried at the bottom of bags or lost in cars. Say something like "I've seen pictures of kids on Wish trips wearing buttons - is that something this chapter does?" For all I know, your chapter might not do them or they might be on backorder or something.

Everyone else is spot on - the most important button you'll receive is the one at GKTW (and the other Wish Trip specific identifying marks they'll have on hand there).

2012bella13 - I very much enjoy being a wish granter. MaW covers a lot more of our costs than you might expect though I for sure have picked up some things out of pocket at times. The time commitment really varies - I try to balance several kids at once because the process can happen in fits and starts (rush of the initial paperwork, then a long process of waiting and planning, then the rush leading up to the wish itself). That means as long as my kids don't stack up heading out of town (or in town, for in town stuff), then I can juggle 3-5 depending on the type of wish.

As far as the breakfast thing, a family that went in December told me that the princesses came to breakfast one morning at GKTW - I don't know how accurate that is or if there are GKTW-specific princesses that did that (or if she saw someone in costume and assumed they were princesses).

As to a few of the more general questions - the amount of times you meet your wish granter(s) as well as a host of other things are determined by your specific chapter's policies. This can include things like additional people included in the wish, what specific wishes are available (I'm thinking cruises here), whether or not trips can be extended and a whole host of other things. One of the greatest strengths of MaW is its local chapters, since it allows us to maximize our resources by area and provide really, really personal service. But it also means what you read about someone else doing may not be applicable to your case.
