Abby Cadabby Dream Come True

May 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!!!

Talk About It

That was just the sweetest! Brought such a big smile to my face smile

Okay, so why am I sitting in a puddle of tears??!?!?!!? We see Seasame Street multiple times a day and tears are not usually involved. Absolutely fabulous! So happy that Abby could find a special way to make Gwendolyn's day! Wow, I bet she wears that clip out! Penny

What a great surprise! That must be such an amazing experience for her to watch that personal message from one of her favorite characters. A thrill for all of us to experience as well - thanks for sharing.

That was the cutest! Every time that Maya sits down to watch Sesame Street I think of Gwendolyn. We have a huge Abby Cadabby fan over here too. I've actually thought of sending her some of the characters but from what I've seen she seems to have quite a collection! : )

That was SOOOO precious!!! No one deserves a surprise like that like Miss Gwendolyn does! It was also fun to hear her little voice and see those sweet little chubby fingers moving in anticipation of seeing it again. What a doll she is! I must admit that every time Em watches Abby I also think of Gwendolyn and we talk sometimes about how Gwendolyn loves Abby too! If she wasn't in bed right now you bet I'd be showing her this video. Tomorrow...

I have smilked and cried the happiest of tears watching this. Gwendolyn is bouncing on cloud 9, this is for sure a fact. I am so happy that the three of you could enjoy this amazing gift together, and for you and Bill to see your baby girl happy as can be. Priceless. --Mari

Bill and Victoria, You have achieved the pinnacle of all possible experiences and treats to bring to your daughter. This is one four minute piece of Joy. Leslie Carrara-Rudolph is a truly special person in the world of entertainment. I listened to the Abby words, and they are RIGHT ON in transporting the message of love to Gwendolyn. She must feel good to be able to give this gift. And you two can feel very good about the love that you give to Gwendolyn and SMA that garners this type of gift in return. Thank you for posting your incredible videos - they say a lot.

That was so sweet! I'm fighting back tears watching her happiness. And just like Abby, Gwendolyn holds a special place in so many of our hearts.
