Thank you so much for creating this great service for sick kiddos. Last week we were lucky enough to have an in room visit from an amazing musician (I believe the founder of your organization) while my foster daughter was hospitalized at Mary Bridge in Tacoma, WA. Our foster daughter has been with us for two years and has been hospitalized many, many times as she has lung disease, cerebral palsy, seizures, and a G-tube as a result of being born at 23 weeks gestation. Due to all her medical issues we go to the doctor or therapy appointments at least 2-3 times a week. She hates being in the hospital due to some terrible trauma that occurred before she came into foster care, and she is usually pretty sad, scared, frustrated, and mad when she is in there. I have never seen her so joyful while at the hospital as she was during this experience. She was feeling much better and was able to be out of bed, so she danced around the room while he sang and played the ukulele. It made me cry to see her so happy while in the hospital, we usually only get to see that at home 🙂 This was our first hospitalization of the cold/flu season this year, and she will likely be back at least 5 more times before spring. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that she had such a wonderful first experience for the year. She is still talking about “that little boy who sang to me!” and his ukulele (she is three and calls all men and women little boys or girls). Foster kids who have chronic illness lead a very tough life, and I just wanted to take the time to let you know that you really made a difference in hers last week.
