We had such a wonderful time at Disney World. We began planning for the trip in late spring, after the kids were both diagnosed and we decided to not go through with the transplant. I can't believe it is over already.
I think the trip was bittersweet in some ways. We were surrounded by families and children. It always reveals just how much we miss out on because of Sanfilippo...just how different our experience was compared to others.
Yet we made some incredible memories. Waverly thrived with all of the sensory stimulation. She was saying some new words, smiling and laughing. Many times she just sat content as a parade went by or a show went on...but she was enjoying herself. Oliver loved every moment. Everything was an adventure for him.
