Happy Birthday Lauren!!

For those of you guys that don't know me - let me introduce you to Lauren.

Lauren is now 16 years old. She has cerebral palsy and I have been working with her for the past couple of years now. She sparked my love for Disney World last year when I was able to join her family on her Make a Wish trip to Walt Disney World!

We celebrated Lauren's 16th birthday earlier this month. We punctuated our celebration for this precious teenager with a party fit for a celebrity!

I just wanted to share some pictures with you guys from this fun party!

The theme was Hollywood...Here are some of the decorations...

Lauren all dressed up! Muffin was just along for the ride!

Lauren had a great time dancing with her friends.

I just wanted to share those with you guys. I have posted these to the DISboards already, but for my Team Voice friends - I wanted to introduce you to Lauren and share some pictures with ya!


  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LAUREN!!! Sweet sixteen! How fun! :)

  2. Awesome!!! Happy Birthday!! It looks like you guys were having a blast.
    SO how do you get to work with Make A Wish??

  3. Thank you guys for your comments! :)

    I don't actually work for Make a Wish.

    Lauren went on a Make a Wish trip back in October of 2008. I went with them and did a lot of the pre-planning for that trip (they are just really busy to be able to add Disney planning to their daily schedule). As I was planning, I found the website. They have a community of Wish Families that were planning trips at the same time I was. I joined that friendly group and am still a member of that group. I have met 3 Wish Families in Disney in person and "met" many online. We still plan trips for wish kids going to Disney in future months.

    And I get to read the reports after they come back, too.

    If you guys are interested, I can post a link to some Wish Trip Reports! :)

    I think Jake's is posted on the AATM website and I posted Noah's (which is ongoing). But I have dozens. :)
