My little Charlotte is an “old soul”… she’s wise beyond her years and has always found an appreciation for the finer things in life.  Her favorite actress is Julie Andrews and adores the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein score from The Sound of Music.

As I watch her “sprout up” right in front of my eyes, I proposed a Sound of Music inspired celebration that focused on our favorite song “Edelweiss” for her 6th birthday.  We called the party “Bloom & Grow Forever,” and for the 6th year in a row, we asked guests to bring donations to two specific charities that are very near and dear to our hearts.  This year’s celebration contributed to the new Charley’s Bear Hug program at Barrow Cleft & Craniofacial Center at St. Joseph’s Hospital that gifts teddy bears created by Cleft Palate Foundation.  Read more about how our little Charlotte’s dream inspired our family to begin a program to give ‘stitched-up’ teddy bears to new infants born with cleft lips and palates here…
