No trip would be complete with out some shenanigans about one piece bathing suits with Kristin & Wendy:
Brianna E.’s Family.
Brianna E.’s brother cries for his little sister – he just wants to protect her – and his tears are contagious. And Brianna gets a BIG surprise from the Atlanta Ballet:
The Atlanta Santa Speedo Run presents a check for $128,000!!!
The Family of Marie S.
Marie, who was abused by her real parents so badly that they broke her spine as a baby (don’t worry, she’s now adopted by her awesome new moms) received $15,000 from Carter’s toward a family car!
Gabe A.’s Family
Gabe’s promise to his mom: “I’m never gonna give up. God has got me this far, he’s not gonna leave me now.”
Gabe never cried when he heard the news of his sickness. In fact, the only time he shed tears is when he found out that his parents couldn’t go on their wedding and honeymoon because he was sick. So, today Gabe’s dad surprised his mom with a proposal and a wedding at Disney…and we have another surprise for both of them.
Linda C.’s Family
Megan E.’s Family
Megan’s family talks about her love for animals…so she’s getting to be an honorary Disney animal doctor and meet an animal, as well as a year membership to Zoo Atlanta…and she got to pet an alligator!
Jainah talks about her struggle with lupus. (Side note: this girl is a riot!)
