Make A Wish Update!

Samantha's "wish granters" came by this weekend to talk to Sammy about what her wish might be. She was pretty shy, so we had to do most of the talking, but in the end, I think it was clear that her wish would be best fulfilled by going to Disney World. They asked her a lot of questions about what her favorite things were and she almost always answered The Little Mermaid or princesses and clearly most princesses live at Disney! They will submit her wish to The Make a Wish foundation who will need to approve it. It generally takes about three weeks to find out if the wish is approved as they have to follow up with her doctors to make sure that she is cleared to do all the things the wish will encompass (fly etc).

We are really excited, but at the same time, we aren't making a big deal of it. She tends to really build things up in her mind if we spend too much time talking about something and then she seems to be disappointed with the actual experience. We are going to try to keep as much of the wish a surprise as we can. We will probably tell her where we are going, but we won't tell her much about what we will do once we get there. She is so young right now, she really doesn't understand what Disney World is, so it should be pretty easy to keep the details quite.

So that is where we stand right now! I will let you all know when we get word about if her wish is approved or not!
