There are not enough ways to say thank you and our day hasn’t “ even started yet. We have been up since 4:50a.m.; our emotions are very high. My favorite thing about MAW is that you don’t try and ‘fix’ things. You don’t pretend everything will be all right. You come in to our homes and you listen to our children - you truly listen to their hearts, their dreams and you work so hard to bring life to those dreams. You honor the journey the children and their families have been on and for that I am extremely thankful.” -Troy’s Mom Wish Volunteers bring the mission of the Foundation to life. From Aroos- took to York County and everywhere in between, volunteers visit Granters 9/1/09 - with children and families to determine their greatest wish, and 8/31/10 then go to great lengths to ensure that the reality of a child’s wish surpasses their wildest dreams. Volunteers are also an indispens- able part of our fund-raising - organizing walks, bake sales, auc- tions, and numerous other events that they create on their own. The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Maine exists due to the work of hundreds of volunteers statewide.
