  James, 12, Hawaii
  The healing process  
  A wish is more than just something that’s nice to have. A wish is often part of the healing process for the entire family. Twelve-year-old James, who suffers from a nervous system disorder, recently returned from his wish trip to Hawaii where he enjoyed playing in the sand and going on a moonlight dinner cruise. “The kindness of all around us was healing and therapeutic after all that we went through,” said his mom. Read about James’ favorite moments and find out how many times he went down the waterslide. A special thanks to our friends at Gemtext for making James’ wish come true.
