There is something fantastic about being in NYC during the holiday season. It is a feeling you get coupled with a sheer sense of adventure and excitement that seems electic.
Walking through the city and Rockefeller Center with my family would have been special in and of itself. However, we connected with The Garden of Hope. They read aboutKelsey and her disease, and they offered us an extra special treat following our show.
The curtain barely closed as an usher arrived at our row to gather Kelsey, her brother, and her cousin. She led us straight backstage through the hustle and bustle of the crowd. Awaiting our arrival were two Rockettes. One was a veteran in her seventeenth year and one was a rookie. Both were beautiful, kind, and genuine. While they dazzled us on stage during the show, they certainly made Kelsey feel like a star.
Their grace, patience, and kindness warmed my heart.
Thank you to The Garden of Hope for spreading kindess and helping my little girl feel special.
