Wishes do come true...

Well some wishes anyway.

Today I received a phone call to say that Ashlea has been approved to receive a Starlight Wish.  She has no idea what that means but her sisters are VERY excited to help her choose her wish!  At the moment they are very keen on a Gold Coast holiday to visit 'the worlds'.


I feel surprisingly emotional about Ashlea being granted a wish.  It is so lovely that we have this opportunity, but it also tugs at the heart strings to think that my baby has been sick enough to qualify.  People's generosity to enable this is amazing and it will mean so much to our whole family.

Now the fun part - we got to think of what we want to do!  Anyone else received a wish?  What did you do?  We are open to suggestions!

Today Ashlea's only wish was to sleep in this box.  Surely we can help her come up with a much better idea!!

Thrilled for you all x i am thinking something duck related? What about a holiday house on a farm with masterchef contestants cooking for you and a heal of new ipad apps and a butler.....( the butler bit was from Cooper, he thinks that would be the best thing!)

That is fantastic, AShlea has been granted her wish. While the Starlight Foundation mostly advertise that they grant wishes for seriously ill kids they also do many wishes for kids that have disabilities. Our daughter had a wish granted last year and we did the Gold Coast Worlds. See our blog http://missyscpjourney.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/missys-starlight-wish.html
It was a wonderful holiday with lasting memories.

I was about 9 years old when I made my wish and it was to go to the gold coast and all the theme parks, swim with the dolphins and go on an upside down rollercoaster it was amazing
