    Hello! I hope everyone is doing well! I am so excited to see more people who are getting their dates!!! I love reading everyones stories and hearing their wishes!:goodvibes

    Kara just finished her second round of oral chemo on Saturday and seems to only vomit after waking up on the monday after ...:confused3 We go back to Hopkins on Wednesday for blood counts. Then May 2nd is her next MRI and IV chemo. Thats gonna be a rough day:crazy2: She really deserves this wish after all the yucky stuff she goes through. We finally got a call from her "wish friends" asking us for 3 different dates/weeks that we would like to go. We have asked for Halloween time since her last Halloween she missed out because of her brain surgery. Part of her wish is to go to BBB and the Castle to eat but im still wondering if I book that myself? I guess all we can do is wait but its so hard! I am slowly getting some outfits for the trip and since I cannot sew Kara's aunt has ordered her a really cute princess pillow case dress. pixiedust:

    Jackie - How is Trevor's wish coming along? And how are is your Kara doing? I hope everything is going well!!:wave2:

    Well I will try to post more soon! Keep posting about all the wishes!!

    Welcome!! I have 4 year old twin girls and their older brother is our wish kiddo. That will be great if you can be approved to have someone come help out with the kiddos while you are there! I think the general "package" for GKTW is 3 days Disney 2 Days Universal and 1 day Sea World. My sons wish is to go to Star Wars Weekend and that is what we are getting too.

    How exciting!!!! Glad to hear the kiddos are feeling better! I hope you have a magical time and I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!

    It is coming up SO fast!! I hope you guys have a magical time! Can't wait to hear all about it when you get back!

    God bless your family as well :hug:

    Awesome- same year!! We had an awesome time- we met many families that lived in the municipality next to us and others close by. It was magical, wonderful, very cool, and just the best thing that has ever happened to me!

    We leave for California in 1 month and 1 week ( may 22) and time's flying by. :hyper::hyper::hyper::hyper:

    12 days!!! We received a welcome brochure from GKTW yesterday, so we know that we are all set to arrive on the 28th. Other than that, I'd be very worried that the trip wasn't actually going to happen. We have had VERY little communication from MAW and we still have no idea what times our flights are. Every time I email our Wish Granters with a question, they forward it to the Wish Coordinator and we get an answer within an hour or so, but there has been almost no spontaneous communication from them. I feel like I'm being pushy when I ask them a question, but we're less than 2 weeks away and I know nothing about the trip, really. I'm trying to wait until tomorrow afternoon to email them, but it's so hard. I know we need to meet with them to get our details and documents and the next 12 days are crazy for us schedule-wise. I'm so grateful for the trip, but I feel like the lack of communication is just crazy.

    I know for us once the wish was official we where told if we had any questions to contact the Wish Coordinator. The grantors only came to the house an submitted the paper work. But then again every chapter is different and we are in NYC so this chapter is probably one of the busiest. If you have the coordinators email try contacted her directly.

    So I have been looking through the DISign threads and came across the autograph book DIY thread. Think I am going to attempt to do one for the princess. I'm not very creative but luckily some of the creative folks on the board have taken pity on poor souls like me and have prepared pages for us to download. Wish me luck.

    We'll be meeting with our Wish Grantors on Saturday for our "reveal party" and I'd love to give them a small token of our appreciation. I know they aren't allowed to accept gifts, but I was thinking about making something for them or giving them something small to say "thanks." I'm already planning on putting together photo albums of our trip for them when we get back. Has anyone given their wish grantors small gifts and were they allowed to accept them?

    Welcome to all the new families!!!!!

    We're 9 days away - getting SO excited! We meet with our grantor next Thursday to get all the final stuff. Ja has bloodwork that day, too, so we just need to hear decent numbers and we're good to go!!

    We just got 3 pieces of fantastic news :-). 1) Friends of ours are flying down for a Disney Cruise and we figured out we're on the same flights there and back! 2) We get to go to an NHL game on Monday, thanks to our local Kids With Cancer group 3) Ja will be featured as our MAW chapter's Wish Child for World Wish Day! We'll be ON our trip for the actual day, but they want to interview Ja before we leave. She'll love it!

    We are currently on our wish trip. My daughter is having a blast. We are at GKTW, they are fantastic with the children. I do have a question. Do I order the pics from the photopass card or do they send me a cd. I have taken my own pics as well but they have got some awesome pics I would love to have.

    Once you get back home, you will load the pictures from your card onto your computer, make any edits you want, and order a CD with your pictures on it. The CD will be sent to you once you order it. Glad you are having a great time!

    Momma31 we are here too. Having an amazing time! My one word of advice is think about what you want to do.....it is so fun and so much. We got here Tuesday afternoon and 2 of my 3 kids are sleeping this afternoon. Heat and walking equal tired kiddos! Lol! So impressed with GTKW! Having an amazing time!
    Blessings,

    When you check out, the Village will tell you how to go about getting your photo pass cd. It is absolutely free to you and your family.
