Thanks to a wonderful organization - The Make A Wish Foundation- , Teresa's wish is coming true.
She wished to be a princess and to meet Belle.
Because of her declining health, her wish has been expedited and she will be going to Disney World at the end of June .
We are so grateful to The Make a Wish org. because with out them we would have never been able to take her to Disney World.
Trips to Disney use to be a family vacation we would go on with our sons when they were young. Since adopting the girls it has become a treasured vacation of the past , something we can no longer afford to do .
We even debated whether or not to go on this trip now but after meeting with The Make A Wish org. , they will cover every part of Teresa's wish . How unbelievable is that .
This will be our first Family vacation with all of our children in over three years. Having all of our children together to celebrate Teresa's Wish was very important.
She will have a "Princess" makeover and a meet and greet with Belle. We have a special lunch planned (for Mom and Teresa) in Cinderellas Castle and we are waiting to see if she can meet the cast of Beauty and The Beast at Disney's Hollywood Studios. She really wants to meet The Beast, Belle and Chip . And look out Gaston , she is going to tell him to leave Belle alone and not to hurt the Beast !
We are a little apprehensive about the heat in Florida and how it will affect Teresa's breathing . So we are going to be very careful and try to keep her in the A/C as much as possible or even the pool . WE are taking her oxygen with us also.
We are praying Teresa will have a wonderful time without any medical emergencies.
We are also praying for Ed's Office to be able sustain the business while he is gone ( this is a huge worry ). The only time he has been off in the last 3 years has been to go to China .
We are going to CHOP on Friday to see if the increase in Teresa's meds. has had any affect on her heart function . We are praying for good news. She is still having episodes where she has great difficulty breathing and becomes very tired .
She can not wait to go to Florida. Every time a plane flies over she looks up and says, " Look they are going to see the princesses , ME TOO!"
She is soooo excited to pack her own suitcase .
All of the girls can not wait!!!!
