I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you, Kelly, and your foundation for a once in a lifetime opportunity for our family. We do not take for granted the hard work, commitment, and love that you all share for God’s children. I think it is a wonderful testimony of God’s abounding love for each of us that He is using you all in such a magnificent way. I want to thank you and your wife personally for making the trip enjoyable and taking the time out of your lives to do so. We won’t forget that gesture and will be forever grateful. Thanks again and I will get those pictures sent via my flash drive this week sometime. Take care and have a wonderful remainder of summer and year! May God bless you as he has blessed us!

Accompanied by his parents, Kenneth and Shauna Blaylock, Kolton began his trip on an exciting note as he was thrilled to experience his first jet-plane ride which brought him to Orlando. The Blaylocks say “Memories were made that will last forever”.
Jakob, 6, was accompanied by his parents Shanna and Arron Howell and brother Devin. Although Jakob is unable to speak, his family said “He was able to let everyone nearby know he was enjoying his trip”.
Our family still has fond memories of our daughter’s wish many years ago. The Wishing Well took care of us from start to finish and made sure our trip was a success. My daughter, Meredith, was 8 at the time and she could not stop smiling as she saw at Disney World Snow White, Goofy, prince and princes of all sorts and of course, Mickey and Minnie Mouse. We at in a Gingerbread house and rode on a carousel under a giant mushroom in the village in which we stayed. I think the ice cream hut was her favorite, though. What a treat but more, what a memory the Wishing Well gave us. Thank you, Wishing Well! —Ronnie, Kelly, Meredith & Kyle
This has been a very busy and fun filled day! We started out early this morning with a wonderful breakfast and flight to Orlando. It was 1st for me and the boys. I was nervous but the boys enjoyed every minute of it. Nan was so brave volunteering to sit with them. Once we landed we were greeted by a lady from GKTW with a sign welcoming Hunter. Then came the best part arriving to Give Kids The World Village. It’s an amazing place with so many actives, things to see, and all the food you could want. We took a short swim because it started raining on us. But that’s okay because it was time to go to the Halloween party!! Lots of candy, games, dancing, and even got to pet a sloth! It has been so much fun it’s hard to believe there is more! This is such a blessing and we are so thankful for Wishing Well of Texoma and to everyone who has made this happen. Such a special time.
