Make A Wish!!!

I was going to blog about the exciting things we are going to have for our walk and to thank those who have donated and signed up to walk with us so far, but....I HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE!!!!!!!

Lil' Chris has been approved for his wish to be granted from the Make A Wish Foundation!!!! YEA!!!!!!

We are all soooo excited!!!! I know you are probably wondering where we are going, so with no further ado ......DISNEYLAND in California!!!! WOOHOO!!!!!

It's kinda funny, b/c up until the day the Make A Wish volunteers came out to ask what his wish was, he kept saying he wanted to go on a Disney Cruise. Even right before they walked in, he was still saying Disney Cruise, with Disneyland as his 2nd choice. When they asked him what his wish was though, he said Disneyland. Not sure why, but we are glad he made that big decision all by himself. After the shock of him changing his mind, we realized that he made a great choice, b/c he will have much more fun at Disneyland going on all the rides, since that's his favorite thing in the world to do:) Good Job, Buddy!! We are so proud of you!!

All the details still have to be worked out, but we can't wait!!! Of course I will have lots of pics for you all when we get back:) It's not for a few months though, so this is going to be the longest few months ever! LOL

We are VERY thankful for this opportunity that Lil' Chris' CF dr has approved him to be ok enough to go on this trip, and for the Make A Wish Foundation to send us on this trip!!! We couldn't be more happy!

We are so thankful that his health has been good and he is able to enjoy such a great opportunity. It will truly be something he will remember for the rest of his life no matter how long or short it is. Wow, it's hard to type that, as I'm sure it's hard for you to read that, but it's the reality of Cystic Fibrosis. His health could change at any time. We are so thankful that his school has been so good about trying to keep him as healthy as possible, especially through this rough, long winter. THANK YOU Wooster Christian School staff and parents!!! You guys are the BEST!!! They are even doing "Change for CF" to help raise money for a CURE by bringing in their loose change!! Some school families have already signed up to walk too!! We are hoping to have a big WCS team at our walk again like last year:)

I'd like to try and give back to Make A Wish, so I'm going to try and set up some AiA events through Kohl's to help get them some $500 grants from Kohl's. Also, if you would like to give back, here is the link to our Make A Wish chapter to donate...http://oki.wish.org/

Also, here is the link to sign up to walk with us on May 4th or to donate for a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis...http://fightcf.cff.org/site/TR/GreatStrides/104_Northern_Ohio_Cleveland?px=1442439&pg=personal&fr_id=2280

Thanks so much everyone!! Please pray that Lil' Chris stays healthy these next few months so we can go on our trip to Disneyland!!!

PS. I got lots of good prizes yesterday for our walkers...details coming soon:)

How exciting! I'm just realizing that maybe this could happen for my daughter, Bethany, one day. I can imagine how excited Chris must be.

Lil Chris must be super excited! Lucky little boy! I'll keep him in my prayers always. I hope he continues to feel better.
