The Magic of a Wish....

I am so tired right now that I probably would do much better to leave this post until later, but I know a lot of people are waiting to hear about our trip. About 9 months ago, my son Ethan, made a wish to go to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Just about a month ago, we were invited to also go to Disney World with Kurt Warner in conjunction with Ethan's wish trip. Terry and I weren't sure about it, but Ethan was all for it so we said yes....What an amazing and incredible experience it was to spend the week with 9 other wish families and Kurt's family. Every day was full to the brim with fun activities and good company and such very special people. I think my family earned the title of "thrill seekers" as all my kids braved...and mostly loved rides like rockin' roller-coaster and tower of terror. Chloe tried to cast a spell on herself with her wand (from Olivander's) to make her grow the two inches in height she needed to go on the Forbidden Journey, which the other kids went on at least twice. Ethan's was working his own magic, charming everyone with his cheerfulness and sweet smile and quickly built special friendships with Kate, Gloria, and Kurt's daughters Jesse and Jada (and Brenda bestowed MANY kisses on him too!). Volunteers Mark and Krissy took Mark, Helen, Chloe for an evening of fun and we had a special evening with Ethan at Give Kids the World where we were able to connect with Gage's family. It was an amazing experience....we could never have done as much on our own. Truly and experience of a lifetime!
