Make A Wish

Last night, we met with Spencer's Wish Granters from Make A Wish, Lori and Joanne.  They are the sweetest women ever!  They were also Shelbie's wish granters when she received her Make A Wish back in 2007and did such a great job.  We have stayed in touch with them and have become good friends and try to get together when we can.  Though it's not often, it's always fun to see them. 

Now, it's all about Spencer.  It has been so hard for him to decide what to wish for and it hasn't been a process he's enjoyed.  In the end, he narrowed it down to his top three choices.  You'll never guess what his top choice was.... He wished to go to a live taping of Saturday Night Live in New York!  Wouldn't that be fun?  Funny too!  He loves comedy and is the family comic.  His second choice was a shopping spree to Best Buy and his third choice was a shopping spree at the West Edmonton Mall in Edmonton, Alberta Canada!

It's safe to say that whichever wish they decide to grant him, he will be happy and enjoy the break from the everyday mundane in the world of Shwachman Diamond Syndrome. 

When I think about Make A Wish, I am filled with gratitude for the individuals and companies who donate their time and money to change the life of a child, the life of a family really.  It makes a huge difference.  It gives us something to look forward to.  Hopefully, we can get the bone marrow biopsies out of the way and muscle biopsies too so he can be healed and enjoy his special time. 



  1. So fun! I'm so grateful for this organization--what an amazing way to help these kids. I can't wait to hear what happens!
