When You Wish Upon a Star...

 It's been just over a year since we applied to Make A Wish for Aaron.

It was hard, a lot harder than I thought it would be.

To apply is to admit that you child will not grow up, is not supposed to live, may only have a short time left.

It's not as if this was unknown, a surprise, but to admit it, well, that's another story.

It's hard.

Trying to figure out Aaron's wish was also a challenge.  So many travel, go to Disneyland, Disney World, or other places.  Except that only children under the age of 18 and living in the home can go.  And really, I don't know that Aaron would enjoy it.

We finally settled on a big screen TV with the "things" to go with it.  And we got it just right.

He LOVES it!  So far, the only time he's seen a full-sized TV has been in the hospital.  Otherwise, his biggest screens have been a small tablet or a laptop computer.

Thursday night was his star raising party.  He was celebrated by family and friends and we raised a star up to the ceiling in his honor.

When you wish upon a star
Your dream comes true
