I want her to believe in wishes.
But I don't know how much longer we have.
I bought the wish bracelets because they were a fundraiser for a mother and baby who were fighting battles with cancer (yes, you read that right -- both have cancer ... now you know why I HAD to buy). Made of a thin string with little adornment, they're supposed to bust apart over time, at which point the "wish" you made at the time you put them on will come true.
Hers busted open at school one day. And she came home in tears. "I didn't turn into a fairy, Mommy."
