Our sweet wish grantor's Ann Marie and Corrine gathered us around and played a game to help the girls brainstorm about what they want to wish for. It was as much fun for everyone as it was for Natalie and Alice. By the end of the game the girls decided on their wishes...plus a back-up wish. They placed their wishes in a metal capsule and unlocked the door to the wishing well. Behind the locked door was a beautiful room with glass flooring (which had changing lights), a water fall and some enchanted music to go along with the changing lights. The girls loved it.
In a few weeks we will find out if their wishes are granted. Here is a list of wishes that Natalie and Alice have been considering...we will tell you the wishes they chose and what was granted soon.
A family size bicycle
A trip to New York to stay in the Plaza Hotel like on Home Alone 2
A trip to Hawaii to see sea turtles, whales, swing on vines, drink from coconuts and see grass huts.
To be an Elephant trainer and have Elephant things
To wish that her siblings could have iPads so they will leave her iPad alone
To live in a tree house with jungle animals all around
To be Rapunzel
To meet Rapunzel
To be a Princess
Tyler and I love how the Make A Wish Foundation began so we added the story's link to this post. It's true...the Make A Wish Foundation is special. Our family has yet to experience the wishes, but already the healing has begun. Having something to look forward to is already healing. Over the past several months Natalie has enjoyed talking about the day she gets to make a wish. During the times when she was most discouraged she would ask if we could talk about her wish. Merely talking about it somehow made the hard times seem easier.
I don't have many pictures now, but will add more later.
