A Reunited Miracle

Shortly after I posted about Nash’s loss, we received this package in the mail:

I didn’t have to open it to know what it was. I let Nash open it instead:


We still can’t believe it. It’s truly a Disneyland miracle that Nash’s nie-night was found amongst hundreds of thousands of people, two weeks later.

It came to us covered in dirt and I’m surprised that someone would actually turn that thing in.

I’m so grateful to that someone.

I’m impressed with Disney that they would go ahead and ship it right to us. And I’m impressed with Blake for not losing faith. He continued to pray to find Nash’s nie-night every day even though we told him it was long gone.

Nash is obviously thrilled.

The nie-night even came to us as an honorary pilot after his flight home.

Words can’t describe how happy we all are.

    Oh how remarkable!! Just goes to show that Disney is probably the greatest family vacation to go on…everyone else is filling those big parenting shoes just like you are and they totally get it. And I would venture to guess that whoever found that, knew they had just given a HUGE piece of Nash's heart and yours right back to you in a little brown envelope. Oh, this makes me happy. Love it!

    Aaaaghhh! This makes me so happy! As if I didn't already think Disneyland was wonderful, they just took an even bigger step up the ladder in my book! The video is so precious.

    I'm SO happy for Nashy! What a miracle! He probably didn't want to let it out of his sight to let it take a spin in the washing machine. I'm so glad you captured it on video.

    Perhaps it's those hormones still coursing through me. Perhaps it's because I'm severely sleep deprived. This made me cry. I'm so happy for Nash!

    Go, Disneyland!!! It's nice to know that there are good-hearted people in this world.

    What an amazing story!!! Answered prayers! Truly a miracle!

    That is so amazing. I mean, like you said, out of the hundreds of thousands of visitors, hundreds of workers at Disneyland and being in a whole other state that nie-night made it back to you guys!! A miracle and sort of makes me like Disneyland even more. The pictures were so precious of Nash being so happy to see his favorite thing. Both my boys have something like that as well. We would all die without those things!

    I haven't had a chance to catch up on blogs in a while and I am so glad I was able to today! What a great vacation and I am so happy to see Nash got his Nie-night back! He is looking more like Troy in some of those photos, just adorable!!
