I'm trying to wait until tomorrow afternoon to email them, but it's so hard. I know we need to meet with them to get our details and documents and the next 12 days are crazy for us schedule-wise. I'm so grateful for the trip, but I feel like the lack of communication is just crazy.
OK ... just heard that our Wish Granters will be setting up a time soon to "deliver our wish." Yay!

I know for us once the wish was official we where told if we had any questions to contact the Wish Coordinator. The grantors only came to the house an submitted the paper work. But then again every chapter is different and we are in NYC so this chapter is probably one of the busiest. If you have the coordinators email try contacted her directly.

So I have been looking through the DISign threads and came across the autograph book DIY thread. Think I am going to attempt to do one for the princess. I'm not very creative but luckily some of the creative folks on the board have taken pity on poor souls like me and have prepared pages for us to download. Wish me luck.

We'll be meeting with our Wish Grantors on Saturday for our "reveal party" and I'd love to give them a small token of our appreciation. I know they aren't allowed to accept gifts, but I was thinking about making something for them or giving them something small to say "thanks." I'm already planning on putting together photo albums of our trip for them when we get back. Has anyone given their wish grantors small gifts and were they allowed to accept them?

I made Carter's wish granters t shirts that said, "I grant wishes."

Welcome to all the new families!!!!!

We're 9 days away - getting SO excited! We meet with our grantor next Thursday to get all the final stuff. Ja has bloodwork that day, too, so we just need to hear decent numbers and we're good to go!!

We just got 3 pieces of fantastic news :-). 1) Friends of ours are flying down for a Disney Cruise and we figured out we're on the same flights there and back! 2) We get to go to an NHL game on Monday, thanks to our local Kids With Cancer group 3) Ja will be featured as our MAW chapter's Wish Child for World Wish Day! We'll be ON our trip for the actual day, but they want to interview Ja before we leave. She'll love it!

We are currently on our wish trip. My daughter is having a blast. We are at GKTW, they are fantastic with the children. I do have a question. Do I order the pics from the photopass card or do they send me a cd. I have taken my own pics as well but they have got some awesome pics I would love to have.

Once you get back home, you will load the pictures from your card onto your computer, make any edits you want, and order a CD with your pictures on it. The CD will be sent to you once you order it. Glad you are having a great time!

We got here Tuesday afternoon and 2 of my 3 kids are sleeping this afternoon. Heat and walking equal tired kiddos! Lol! So impressed with GTKW! Having an amazing time!

When you check out, the Village will tell you how to go about getting your photo pass cd. It is absolutely free to you and your family.
