Jace's Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Adventure

Wish Kid Jace
We always love hearing firsthand how a wish can impact a family. Today, Erin shares her perspective as a Wish Mom. A popular local blogger with the Oklahoma City Mom’s Blog, Erin’s four-year-old son was recently granted a wish by Make-A-Wish Oklahoma. Jace wished to have his own very unique “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” adventure.

Erin describes just one of the highlights from Jace’s “one true wish:”

“There were so many fun details and surprises along the way … It was amazing to receive this gift for my son, and as a family, but what was truly a blessing was watching others partake in it as well.  They saw my son had on his Make-A-Wish button and people went above and beyond to get a smile from my boy – to give him an experience like none other. One experience I will never forget are some waitresses on our first train ride pooled together some of their tip money so Jace could get a souvenir at the gift shop. Their generosity touched us.  They didn’t have to do that at all, but they wanted him to have something to remember the trip.

And this, truly, is a trip that has bonded our family like never before!  We are so appreciative of all the people who went out of their way to make this whole experience happen for our son, our daughter and for us.”
