The first Make-a-Wish meeting happened today. We met Brayden's wish grantors (the volunteers that facilitate the wish process).

The grantors came bearing gifts for all the boys. Sticker books for Carter and Luke. And a toy for Brayden...the kind of toy he likes!

Went through the paperwork. Brayden granted them a few smiles.

Talked about the wish for the Brayden.

Wanna know what it is!?

Disney World.

We have heard amazing things about the program set up for Make-a-Wish with Disney World. The kids receive the royal treatment.

Why we decided on Disney: The Make-a-Wish in Disney World is a well oiled machine. It maximizes the Make-a-Wish opportunity. I have talked with other families that have done their wish at Disney and they said it was magical, exceeding all expectations. We also wanted something that Carter and Luke could enjoy. They go through just as much as Brayden, their life is turned upside down on too many occasions. We wanted something we could enjoy as a family. Too many times, one of us is with Carter and Luke and one with Brayden.

Disney World is a good fit for our family. We can do it together.

We are aiming for February/March to go for a week.
Carter and Luke are so excited. And I am sure Brayden is thrilled too.
