Micah...


(I love this pic from 2 summers ago!)

I am shouting this from the rooftops... I just got a call today that Micah has been qualified for Make a Wish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't be alarmed...He is NOT dying!!! To qualify, you do not have to be terminal anymore, you have to have a life threatening illness. Spina Bifida is not life threatening, but a shunt can be. You never know if it will malfunction, get infected, etc. Micah is on shunt #3. He has a shunt because of his hydrocephalus, which is a result from having Spina Bifida.

I am soooooooooo excited for him, and I can't wait to tell him when he gets off the bus!

His Wish, you might ask... DISNEY WORLD...

That is really awesome! I love Make-A-Wish. They did a party for my beloved sister, Kinsey.

I am so happy for Micah, and if you would ever need a nanny for that trip, hmmmm---I think I know someone who'd love to help you out with that! ;)

Keep us posted! That is so exciting!

I needed something happy today!
