Abby Cadabby Dream Come TrueMay 21, 2010 by Victoria Strong
When we returned home after the Stanford trip, we received the most incredible surprise. And I mean, incredible! A dream come true for Gwendolyn. Unbeknownst to us, a friend of a friend was working on a little project for Gwendolyn (actually, a pretty darn BIG surprise in the world of an obsessed Sesame Street fan). And what is so amazing is how many people were involved, how many people went out of their way, called in favors, and took the extra time and effort for our little girl. A little girl who so deserves an extra special something right now. And we all benefited. To see Gwendolyn experience joy and excitement, to see her happy, makes Bill and I simply content. Her happiness is our world.
Thank you Mary for introducing Maggie to Gwendolyn. Thank you Maggie for thinking of this special gift and for pursuing it. Thank you Emily for asking for this favor. And thank you Leslie Carrara-Rudolph for making our little girl, your #1 fan, so very, very happy. We've now watched your wonderful video literally 100 times and her favorite part is when you (I mean Abby Cadabby) laughs and says, "I love you!" We love you right back!!!
