Jessie's Make-A-Wish

As you may have read earlier in this blog, the Make-A-Wish foundation is granting Jessie a special wish. They asked her to dream and imagine whatever she wanted. To wish that one truly special wish. That once in a life-time adventure.

She still wanted a chocolate donut with sprinkles and paper and markers. OK, Donut....check! OK, Paper and Markers....check! What else. Next she wanted to go to Wyoming. Kristi's Mom and Dad live in Wyoming, so we will definitely be there sometime soon. OK, Wyoming...check! So we asked her again for a special wish.....she wants to go play with the dog. Mary and Tom from Make-A-Wish decided that maybe they would come back again on another day...give her a chance to think. We all agreed that would be best.

We showed her lots of ideas on the Internet, and after careful consideration, (and much prodding by her older brothers) that Disney World would be her Special Wish. She wants to eat with Cinderella in her castle, but only if Miss McGaugh (her Kindergarten teacher) and her friend Emma can come too. Unfortunately Make-A-Wish only allows immediate family. Sorry Miss McGaugh....sorry Emma. We wish you could come too.

The Make-A-Wish foundation along with the Give Kids the World organization have graciously and compassionately planned a special week for Jessie and the rest of us starting on April 7th.
THANK YOU !! Make-A-Wish and Give Kids the World and thanks Mary and Tom.
We will be staying in the Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee Florida at night, and during the day enjoy the many attractions that the Orlando area has to offer.

We promise to take a lot of pictures and report back on how Jessie enjoyed her wish.
Thanks again for everyone's thoughts and prayers. There are some days that your kind words and acts of kindness get us through the day.
We are so blessed to have a wonderful God, community, school system, employers, doctors, family members, and friends to help us through this difficult time. Thanks to all of you!!

Cris, Kristi, and the rest of the Hall Zoo.
