The Make A Wish Foundation of North Texas is sending 3-year-old Karter Whittenberg and his family to Disney World to meet the real Mickey Mouse and his friends. Karter was surprised when a huge crowd showed up on Sunday to see the look on his face when his wish was granted. His dad, Robert, mom Christin and brothers Kash, Khalon and Kharson (seen above) are all included in his wish, as are his grandparents Eustace fire chief Chris Anthony and wife Caren, the planner behind the big parade and reveal party. Eustace ISD students helped bring the magic by appearing in costume as Disney characters. An estimated 1,200 well-wishers joined in the celebration, hosted on the Eustace Town Square. See the Sunday issue of The Monitor for more pictures from the event.
