|Tucker's official Make-A-Wish packet|
As many of you remember, at the Amazing Little Hearts Halloween party back in October, Tucker learned that he would be getting his Make A Wish dream: To meet Lightning McQueen! Well...the time has come! In just three days, the four of us will be boarding a plane to Disneyland, and Tucker will get his wish!
This day seemed so far away back in October, but now that it's here, the emotions are overwhelming. My baby, who has endured more struggles than most people will ever know, gets to "be a kid" and enjoy what life has to offer. No hospital beds, IVs, heart monitors, blood pressure cuffs, chest tubes, PICC lines, steri-strips, bandages, etc. He gets to do what all kids want to do -- be normal. Oh, I know he'll get nasty looks when we get special privileges or people will see our blue Make A Wish shirts and wonder "what's wrong with him," but none of it matters. As far as he knows, he's the center of the world for a whole week. And Trent and I will do and buy whatever he wants because he deserves it.

We ask for your prayers for safe traveling. We also ask you to pray for the boys to have patience. We want them to have the best experience, but we don't want either of them to be so tired and frustrated that they can't enjoy it. Please pray that Trent and I stay focused on what's truly important and that we can be kids again too. Most of all, pray that we come home with no regrets, knowing that Tucker got everything he wished for.
Love and Mickey Mouse hugs,
Trent, Dena, Tucker, and Finn
