Emma's Disney dream come true PTR

Our list of characters:
Joe...dad who loves watching cartoons with the kids (and without them too)
Dana....mom who keeps our house running and everything else keeps me running!
Emma...9 yrs. Wish Princess who I'll be spending her b-day in the most magical place on earth.
Ryan....8 yrs. Going on 30 Super smart but still a handful.

Emma was born with Congenital Heart Defects on March 25th, 2003. I had a normal pregnancy with "perfect" ultrasounds so, when they told us that Emma was not doing well and they thought it was her heart, we were all heart-broken. She was transferred to UAB in Birmingham, AL. When she got there we found out she had Transposition of the Great Vessels, Pulmonary Stenosis, and a VSD.
Emma had surgery at 9 days old for a B-T shunt and did great!! We got to come home when she was 2 weeks old.
Fast forward to today and 1 more B-T shunt at 1 yr. + Open-heart surgery at 2 1/2 yrs.+ 4 sets of ear tubes + other minor surgery + a brace for scoliosis.
I knew Emma would be eligible for a wish through MAW for a while but wanted to wait until she was older to go ahead. I went on the MAW website and recommended
Emma myself and it didn't take long at all before we heard back from them. I already knew what Emma's wish would be because she had been telling us since she was 4 that she wanted to go to Disney World. Now, since being approved for her trip, anytime something about Disney comes on she just starts screaming any running through the house I won't ever forget how excited she has been over this whole process. This experience will forever live in her heart and ours and I couldn't be more blessed
I know it's not much of a read but THANK YOU for stopping by

Welcome to the DIS!

I just want to invite you over to the Wish Trippers thread (if you have not already discovered it!) and to let you know that I linked your pretrip report over on the Wish Trippers thread so that hopefully more folks will find you and come over and say hello!
