Make A Wish (Part One)
I don't believe there is a single person who hasn't heard of the Make A Wish Foundation.
They are famous for their extremely generous, over-the-top, tell-us-your-heart's-desire wishes
granted to children with life threatening illnesses.
We are here to testify that
Make A Wish wants--I daresay encourages--each child to dream big. "The sky is the limit," their welcome packet states. Our contact person was Jackie at the Make A Wish office in Appleton. She was friendly, helpful and efficient to say the least. In our initial conversation over the phone, we discussed several options for Jaymun. Since Jaymun is not verbally able yet to engage in stimulating conversation about the pros and cons of different wishes, I gave Jackie two different scenarios that I knew Jaymun would be thrilled about.
We met in person with Rick and Lynn, Jaymun's "wish granters". They came out to our house and sat down to discuss the options. (I give extra points to this empty nest couple who sweetly braved the chaos of five children hopped up on the happiness of being sent on a thrilling adventure!) Not only did they generously deliver gifts to Jaymun, they brought something for each one of the kids.

So, as I've said before, our trip is going to be posted in segments. There is no way we could post all our photos here, but I will try to include some of the highlights for you.
