Wishes Come True

What a magical evening! Graci's night at the Make-a-Wish foundation was truly amazing. Christi, myself, and my dad (who just happened to be in town) all found ourselves getting choked up at various times. This is a top-notch organzation, with people who are unbelieveable.

We are exhausted tonight, but will blog more tomorrow. For now, here's a picture of the princess herself:)

Her wish was for a Disney Cruise!!! How fun is that???

As she was getting ready for bed tonight, Graci very sincerely asked Christi, "Mom, do you think I'm dreaming?" No, little angel, you are not.


Wish Day!

Tonight at 7:00 p.m., Graci and our family will travel to the wishing place and declare her wish! She has been counting down the days and is full of excitement. We are still unsure of what her wish will be. She goes from a Disney Cruise to poofy dresses to Chinese tutoring to Disneyworld to a shopping spree to meeting this man:

It touched me that when we talked to Grace about the many people she could wish to meet-- Hannah Montana, Taylor Swift, etc-- that she, on her own, came up with him-- a humble apostle and prophet of the Lord. We love our Graci Kate!

We are so excited to see what tonight brings. I have felt so overwhelmed by the blessings that Make-a-Wish has already brought our family-- the blessings of smiles, magic, gratitude, excitement! What a marvelous organization!
