Last March Sephine and our family got a visit from Make-A-Wish. Upon asking her what her wish was, the only two words out of Sephine's mouth that afternoon were "Costa Rica". March was a tough month for her little body so Jilly and Kora did a lot of talking for her that day.
Our family had been planning a trip there in October of 2010 when all of this change happened. So of course, we put it off.
We got a call five months ago from Make-A-Wish claiming Sephine's wish to go to Costa Rica was really going to happen.
Of her 5 years of precious life, her nickname (one of a few), has always been Monkey. Turns out she really does love them too. She is quick to spot out monkeys in stories, monkeys in pictures, has lots of monkey stuffed animals, monkey blankets, etc. So needless to say, one of the big draws for her to want this trip was to see the monkeys in person.
Two days ago Make-A-Wish called to tell us that we will be leaving for a week the beginning of March to celebrate this wish. We are so excited! Of course the place they are sending us is a hotel as well as a wildlife refuge....for monkeys....
