Six Dream kids and their families joined the Warner family and First Things First for the annual weeklong trip to Florida. Two families from Arizona and three families from Missouri spent the week with the Warner family as bonds were formed and friendships were made while exploring the best of Orlando including Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Magic Kingdom, and SeaWorld. First Things First has now hosted a total of 161 Wish/Dream kids for this magical week! We are so grateful for the support of our amazing partners: Give Kids the World, Dream Factory, and For Those Without a Voice.
