File Mar 18, 10 42 53 PMSince we have been fortunate enough to get to know Erin (Charlotte’s bone marrow donor) over the last 4 years, we have all been looking forward to the possibility of us getting together around March of this year.  We knew we needed a completely special way to File Mar 18, 10 39 17 PMcelebrate the 5 year post-transplant mark.  So we decided to take the girls to California to see her!  We recently returned home from a trip to Anaheim that we were able to spend just hanging out with Erin.  It was a joyous occasion and one none of us will ever forget.  We enjoyed three days in Disneyland as well as a trip to the San Diego Zoo, and a wonderful day partaking in a California style beach party.  We were able to meet several members of her family and some of her good friends; all who were as pleasant and kind to us as Erin always has been.  She feels just as important to our family now as she was over 5 years ago, and we wouldn’t be the same without her in our lives.  We are truly blessed to have such a caring and supportive network of friends and family.
