THIS PAGE IS DEDICATED TO MY DARLING DAUGHTER LAURA WHO WAS BORN WITH SPINA BIFIDA
Laura was granted a wish through The Kids Wish Network and she decided she wanted to go to Orlando, Florida and visit Disney World. I want to take this opportunity to thank The Kids Wish Network and everyone else that helped make Laura's wish happen. Without their generosity our family would not have had this vacation. The Kids Wish Network arranged for hotel rooms, tickets to the theme parks, meals, and pretty much everything else we needed for our family of seven. We left on Saturday June 24th, 2006, spent one night in Savannah, Georgia on the way down, enjoyed five days and four nights in Orlando, spent a night in Savannah on the way back to Ohio, returning home Friday night, June 30th.
At this time I want to thank the following who contributed to this trip:
The Doubletree Hotel by Hilton in Orlando (www.doubletree.com)
The Hampton Inn & Suites (www.hamptoninn.hilton.com)
The Homewood Suites by Hilton (www.homewoodsuites.hilton.com)

I hope that while browsing through this web site you will learn that Spina Bifida is not as devastating as people are led to believe. Laura is a very smart and vocal young lady. Even though she has Spina Bifida and Hydracephalus she doesn't let it slow her down at all. She is an honor roll student and is bound and determined to do everything her five brothers do. So read on and I hope you enjoy your stay. Don't miss the wonderful links at the bottom of this page to other web sites about Spina Bifida.
