Hi all!! We've been hoping for this trip for awhile now!! Alex, my daughter, has Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2. She began crawling and pulling up when she was around 8 months old and then just stopped at around 13 months. We took her to Austin, tx and saw a neurologist who did genetic blood testing and determined that myself and he dad are carriers for the genetic disability and she happened to be the 25% chance of getting it. We were heartbroken. She now receives physical therapy, occupational therapy and lots of love! She got a g-tube put in her belly in December 2011 because she wasn't eating as much as she needed to. She's a pretty picky eater, but we make sure she eats a lot, and she hasn't had to use her tube for quite a while now. She typically only uses it when she's sick and can't eat by mouth. She's very smart, funny and always smiling! We can always count on our Allie to bring a smile to our faces! Allie was raised on Disney!! I've always loved Disney, and now, like mother like daughter, she's obsessed!! From Disney movies to the Disney channel to the Disney store, she loves it all. So when it came time to choose her wish, she knew exactly what she wanted!! (Well actually, she didn't want to have to ever go back to the dentist again, LMBO, but that just wasn't an option!!) Now, on to the fun stuff!! We recommended Alex for the trip in February, and promptly received contact from our wish coordinators! They came out to the house and met with our little princess. She decided she was going to dress up like her favorite princess, Rapunzel (or Tangled, as she calls her), and let the two wonderful women know that she wanted to go to Disney world!! They asked who she would want to bring, because Alex is our only child, and she chose her favorite cousin Julia. Now, we're waiting on dates to be able to go, our hopeful dates are June 7-14 but were waiting on Julia's guardian to get court documents to allow her to go. Hopefully she'll have them in the mail to the MAW office in Houston by Friday!! We're open to any and all tips or information about this wonderful experience!!! I'm getting my hopes up before we even know if we're going or not!!! LOL!!! Here's hoping we know soon if we get to go!!
