Make ~ A ~ Wish

We just met the three most incredible men tonight. Rick, Gary and Kevin from the Make A Wish Foundation came over and brought us dinner and wanted to discuss Natalie making a wish. At first when we were told she would be granted a wish we were a little freaked out. We didn't understand that this foundation grants wishes to kids all the time that are going to be just fine. They just have to be dealing with a chronic or life threatening illness. We thought it was a last wish kinda thing.
Well, these three wish grantors are sure to be life long friends of our family. They were the neatest people. If we never got anything more then the 2 1/2 hours they spent with us tonight we would still feel so very blessed. Our entire family enjoyed them thoroughly and what a special gift they give families with their compassion and love they show in doing what they do. This is the 71st wish Gary will be a part of and he himself is a Leukemia survivor. Love that! For Kevin and Rick, Natalie was their very first personally chosen child and what a perfect fit. Leukemia is very close to all of these men and has touched them personally in some way. What an absolute blessing God gave us tonight and we are so grateful.
Wishes Really Do Come True!
Love ~ The Erwin Family


  1. How awesome! I didn't know that about Make-a-Wish either. So glad that Natalie (and your family) are being blessed in this way! Can't wait to hear the results!

  2. This is very exciting. You all deserve a Wish Come True right now!!

  3. Ok, so I am completely filled with goose bumps! I am so happy for your family and that Natalie gets a wish granted!

  4. You deserve it! Despite all the craziness around us, there is so much good in the world!
    You will have to keep us posted!

  5. That is awesome! We think of and pray for you often.
