Bittersweet....


That's the only way I know how to describe it. Well, here it is - the special announcement. Sydney has been granted a wish . Today was her wish day and she has wished for a trip on the Mickey boat, otherwise known as a Disney cruise! As great, wonderful, exciting, and totally awesome as it is to be granted a wish like this, I really wish that she did NOT qualify......But it is indeed a blessing. The proverbial "silver lining" and for that I am grateful. I'm overwhelmed at the moment because this brings us back to reality and how serious her disease really is. But I am truly excited for Sydney and this wonderful opportunity that she has.

So happy that she got her wish granted!

I too suffered from a tumor - a brain tumor removed in 1987 and I am still here. Never stop believing in miracles!! There is no place like Disney to help you believe...

I just found your blog via Room for at least one more. I wanted to let you know y'all are in my prayers. But more than that, my best friend (known as Little on my blog) lived with cancer for @5 years as a child and was also granted a wish to go to Hawaii. Last year I was MOH in here wedding, in Hawaii. She is not wonderful- married and hoping to start a family. I know the situation is different but wanted to let you know that sometimes a wish can be just that....a nice wish come true. Your little girl is beautiful and is in my heart!
