There are no words. Nothing to describe the range of emotions an Iowa family is trying to cope with as they return from Disneyworld.
Chris and Emmalee Julin, of Arcadia, had been at Magic Kingdom park
in Orlando, Fla., celebrating 3 year-old son Connor's succesful heart transplant. But while there they learned that their 2-month-old baby, Chance, was killed in a crash near Breda.
The baby's godmother, Mary Ann Vanderheiden, had been caring for
the boy. She was driving him to his grandparents' home in Arcadia,
about 10 miles from Breda, when her car ran off a county road and
into a ditch.
Connor's transplant occurred March 12. The Make-A-Wish
Foundation paid for the Orlando trip so the family could celebrate
his new life.
