Hi there. I want to introduce you to my little girl who recently was granted a wish trip to Disney World. She is beyond excited and has had a rough go for the past few years, but you would never know it from her sweet disposition. I'll start at the begining. Mia was diagnosed in-utero with critical aortic stenosis. The cardiologist told me at 25 weeks that she would need a heart transplant when she was born in order to survive. This news was understandably devastating, and week after week she held on despite the doctors thinking she would't make it. Immediately following her birth Mia was rushed to Seattle Children's hospital which would be her home for the next five months waiting for a donor heart to become available and giving her a chance at life. After four months of clinging to life, we were given the news that a heart had been offered to Mia. It was the most incredible phone call of my life, and still to this day do not think anything will top the feeling of knowing I get to keep my daughter. After a month of recovery we finally got to take our little girl home and along with her brother and sister we could be together as a family. Mia was transplanted and did phenomenally her first year post transplant. She learned how to eat and got rid of her feeding tube when she was one year old. We were frequent visitors to the hospital that first year often going twice a week for labs and check- ups. Sadly, for the past three years Mia has been in and out of rejection. When she is in rejection our hearts are broken... when she is not in rejection she is a bubbly happy seemingly typical 4 year old. We can't imagine life without her and she is truly in a joy in all of our lives, and I am just thrilled she is able to make a wish. Mia has an affinity for Minnie Mouse and her very favorite show is Mickey Mouse club house. This was the basis for her wish trip to Disney World. The trip to Disney World is scheduled for October, and October couldn't come soon enough. We have never been to Disney World before, or anywhere close to Florida. I would love any advice or suggestions you have for us. I know it is magical and would love to hear your experiences. Thanks for taking the time to read about our Mia girl.
