    Hi :wave2: Our little family consists of me, Christi, my wonderful husband Tom, and our 15 year old daughter Angel.

    [​IMG] This picture is one of the ones we were able to get with H2OMama's gift. :goodvibes



    Angel was very unexpectedly diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia (a bone marrow failure) in early 2012. The details of her diagnosis can be found in our pretrip report HERE. I've been asked if we have a CaringBridge site - yes, we do, as well as a FB community page. If you'd like either info, please PM me.

    Angel's diagnosis qualified her for Make a Wish. In Dec. she made her Wish: to go on a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise on the Disney Fantasy, but our MAW chapter would only grant the Disney Dream.

    There were a few problems on the trip, but overall it was wonderful. :beach:

    We're looking forward to sharing all about it, but I have a feeling it will take us some time to do so. Angel has to get caught up at school, and I have the quite daunting task of unpacking, and putting everything away (everything has to be disinfected before I can put it away :crazy2:). Angel took over 800 pictures on just the cruise portion of our trip :faint: , so it's going to take some time to get them organized.

    Glad to hear that it was an overall good trip! And good luck with unpacking and getting back to your routines. Hopefully going through the pictures is fun and helps you remember all the fun highlights of your trip! Good luck with getting things disinfected... That part really doesn't sound like much fun.

    I can't wait to hear more about your adventure!

    Glad the trip went well, I am looking forward to the pics!!
    I enjoy reading everyones trip reports, I did not even know about DisBoards when Brooklin had her Make A Wish trip to Disney World in 2011, I found it during research for our second trip to Disney World.
    God Bless!!

    I love that Disney does such nice things for the Make-A-Wish kids. My niece received her wish to go to Disneyworld 6\2012 and they gave her a trip she will never forget. Hope your daughters was so special! :)
