I Wish to Be...

ELSA!!!!

Abby's Make A Wish was approved, so now we can tell you that she is going to be Elsa at Disney World!  We're not sure exactly what that will entail, but it will be something along the lines of Abby dressing up like Elsa, signing autographs with her, being in one of the shows, riding in the parade, etc.  She will BE Elsa for the day!!!  We are ecstatic for her!

We will also be able to enjoy a trip to Disney parks and the other attractions in the Orlando area.  The details will be worked out in the coming months, and I'll share them as I find out.

Because we have to get her through the next year of at least 5 surgeries (2 VEPTR implants, a gtube closure, a jaw distraction, and at least one VEPTR expansion), we most likely won't travel until the fall of 2015.  But that's okay, because this gives us something to focus on when we have hard days.  

THANK YOU to Make a Wish Mid-Atlantic for giving us something to look forward to! This came at the perfect time.  THANK YOU to my friend Karen who is able to be her wish granter!  I absolutely love that we are able to work with someone who knows Abby and her story. 

Yesterday was a rough day for me as I began to pack.  Isn't it just like God to me something to make me smile when I am down?
