Bella returned to the gym! Thanks to Kathy and Drennen Lowell, Bella had a wonderful Saturday afternoon surprising all her friends and teammates with a visit to Phantom Gymnastics. She was greeted by the staff with a beautiful tiara and flowers. Close friend and Coach Tammy Kozlowski gave a heartwarming speech about her many trips taking Bella and her daughter to the gym every week, a ritual the girls loved. The gymnasts were very excited to see Bella and she helped Tammy judge the floor exercises! It was like she never left.
A few weeks before Christmas, Bella got the most exciting surprise of her life - a personal visit from Selena Gomez! She was absolutely thrilled and it was something we will remember forever. During their visit, Selena asked Bella what she wanted for Christmas and Bella emphatically told her that she wanted an Easy Bake Oven.
It's been a long, cold and snowy winter, but Bella has made it through with her beautiful smile and without any hitches. She has been spending these cold days hanging out with her brothers, sister and her friends, playing games on her computer, Facebooking and always texting anyone who will text back! Bella continues to attend therapy and is making incredible strides everyday.
What a month it’s been. Bella is finally in her newly finished home along with her Mom, Pete and her three brothers and sister!
She easily transitioned back to school, thanks to the loving help of her school caretakers, and is enjoying being back with all her close friends. She truly amazes us with her new daily accomplishments. At school, Bella has an assistant with her every day – Mrs. Kelly, whom Bella enjoys being with very much. They even color-coordinate what they both will wear to school the next day. Bella has been able to join the chorus (and loves it) and even wants to join the bowling team!
