Mia’s birthday

” Hello there, ” I said.

” Who are you? ” he asked, his eyes trying to focus on me.

” A friend,” I answered as I helped him to sitting position.

” How did I get here? ” he looked around my studio, in wonder.

” Mia,”  I said, ” made a drawing of you and it was sent to me.”  And I showed him the drawing.

by Mia, age 5

He looked at it for a long time, slowly understanding that this was what he looked like, before asking, “Is Mia a friend?”

” Oh yes,” I said, ” she is your best friend. ”

He began to shudder, perhaps from the cold, so I wrapped a scarf around him.

” Is that better?” I asked.

He nodded. ” I’m actually shaking because I’m feeling excited. Where is Mia?” he asked.

” Mia will be excited to see you too,”  I said,  ” it’s a bit of a journey for you, but hopefully it won’t be long before you two connect. ”

” A journey?” he looked nervous.

” Look at it as an adventure.  I mean your whole life now, ahead of you, it’s an adventure!”  I smiled at him.

He carefully put his hands together and said, ” Okay, I think I’d like some of that.”

    • Ya me too! I didn’t want to say it, but I’m laughing, smiling with happy tears!
      I love this story! Next step for Wendy will be to make a story book ;)

  1. Your little story has warmed all of us just like the scarf you wrapped around Mia’s best friend.

  2. Making kids’ drawing alive in the form of dolls is a great idea. In this way, you can turn them into a great designer. I love your dolls knowing that it came from a child’s imagination.
