William's dates have been set for his Wish Trip!  He is so very excited!  Well, EVERYONE is so very excited! We are busy making preparations, sewing outfits, gathering medications, etc. And today I ordered perhaps the coolest item ever! I ordered the Aqua+ accessory from Cochlear. Here is a short video that shows the absolute awesomeness of the Aqua+:

I can't wait to take William to Orlando and watch him play while he has this new accessory!  No worries about water now!

William's Song

For those of you who were at William's Shindig, you'll probably remember the song that Benjamin wrote for William.  Well, it's up and running now.  It's been copyrighted and they've had it put to a video that is really sweet.  Savannah updated it to his YouCaring site and she summed it up pretty well, so I've just copied her text here:

by Savannah, Benjamin, and Julia
Dear Friends and Family,

I am so excited to be able to share something very special with you today. A couple of months ago, Benjamin (who, for those of you who don't know, is very gifted with music) composed and wrote a song for William. It is amazing. After hearing Benjamin sing the song at a local event for William, a kind lady who has a professional video production company offered to donate her time and equipment to put the song to video. We have been greatly anticipating its completion and it is this video that I am excited to share with you today!!!

You can view the video on the main page of William's fundraiser. If you still want to view William's documentary, you can watch it on our YouTube channel here:

God bless you all!

Savannah (for all the rest :)

For those who haven't heard the song, it's definitely a "must!" God has blessed this young man with amazing talent and we have been so blessed to witness how he uses it!  What an incredibly sweet song he wrote for William!  Hope you enjoy it, too!

William's Surprise - Revealed!

First of all, I apologize for the secrecy.  I never intended for it to draw out this long.  I simply did not realize. I wanted to wait until everything was in place, but I'm not sure when that will be and, considering the calls and emails of "Hey, what's up," I decided to go ahead and let the cat out of the bag.
After William came off the ventilator and we were sure he was well on his way to recovery, his doctor approached us to ask if he had ever been granted a wish through

He submitted the paperwork and William's wish coordinators came out to meet him to see what his wish was.  Can you guess what he wants to do?

We have been waiting on his doctor to fill out more paperwork and we've hit a little snag over flying, but all should come together soon.
William is SO excited about his trip!  Well, so is everyone else!  They are sending us to Disney World so William can meet Woody! It's all pretty exciting!  We have already been busily planning our schedule.  We had decided to all go in costume and were busily preparing our costumes, when a friend told me that adults couldn't go to WDW in costume.  I looked it up and, sure enough, they don't allow it!  Whew!  I'm glad to know about THAT before we got there!  We had so much fun planning it, though, we've decided to still go in costume the day we visit Hollywood Studios.  The boys are wanting to go to the Jedi Training Academy, so we decided that would be a great time for us all to dress as book characters!  I'll post pictures when we have them and maybe we'll have a little contest to see if anyone can tell who is who! :)
If anyone has any tips or tricks, be sure to let us know.  We're beginners!

Jonathan Park

Our children LOVE listening to the Creation Adventure audio dramas from Jonathan Park at!

I recently entered a FB contest to help raise awareness for Jonathan Park and get the name out and, guess what?  We won!

I got an email today that we won the 10-volume Master Collection!  I can't tell you how excited the children are!  Volume 10 was released recently and they've been after us to get it!  Now we'll be getting it in the mail!  What a blessing!!!
