Sophia's Dream

My Story

Meet Sophia who at just 3 days old was rushed into Birmingham Children's Hospital with complex medical conditions which were undetected after birth. She then had to undergo five open heart surgeries in just 18 months. Unfortunately, her future remains guarded as there are no set plans for further interventions or treatment pathways.

Although Sophia has had a terrible start in life she is always smiling, singing and dancing. She loves Mary Poppins and in particular Bert and has dreamed of going to Disneyland Paris to meet all her favourite characters. Her parents applied to Promise Dreams for help to get them there as Sophia's Mom had to quit her job to look after her. They said they "wanted to make her as happy as possible and show her why life is worth fighting for!"

At the end of July, we managed to make this dream happen for Sophia and her family. Bert even stopped the parade to have a cuddle and photo with her. Her Mom said "we have so many special memories, which we will cherish forever!
