This 5 year old girl is a true delight who loves My Little Pony and the Disney princesses!  She’s a bright, and bubbly little girl and has quite a collection of stuffed animals (we got to meet each one of them individually). When she was just over a year old, she started down the road of multiple corrective surgeries, including four cystostomy placements, and three ileostomy surgeries.  She has spent months in the hospital, and nearly lost her life after developing sepsis from a recent surgery.  Due to the invasive procedures, and months in hospital, she has fallen behind in her gross and fine motor development skills.  She struggles with residual PTSD from all the surgeries and procedures she’s had to go through.  This will be a lifelong journey for her.  But you’d never know she’s gone through all that she has.   She likes to play with her friends and going to the playground, and spends a good deal of time in imaginative play; dressing up, building forts out of pillows in the living room, and playing with her stuffies.  Her favourite book is Clifford the Big Red Dog, and her favourite song is Taylor Swift’s Shake It Off.  Obviously, she’s going to have the time of her life finding magic on her wish trip to Disney World!
