Wish sibling Logan....a unique gift to last a lifetime
This was by far the most unique wish we have had!!! And let me tell you…it was soooo awesome to be able to give this to Logan.
Logan is a lover of music and art. She already plays multiple instruments and is in multiple musical programs.
There was one really important question I asked Logan when granting this wish….what is something you want but would never ask anyone to buy for you and would never buy yourself.… A BASSOON!!!! Logan spent a ton of time answering my ridiculously long list of questions. Here I learned so much about just her! But the one thing that stuck out the most was this bassoon. She has wanted one for quite some time. If you know anything about musical instruments you’ll know that bassoons aren’t really in the average household budget. But guess what…it was in ours!!! BUT!!! We didn’t stop there. It really wasn’t enough for us to just go hand her a bassoon and say “have a nice day”. I needed more…she needed more. So we went ahead and got Logan some supplies to start out for her bassoon, added in a $150 Amazon gift card (because she also LOVES to buy wigs!!), and got her and her family tickets to the Orchestra at Symphoria of Syracuse. Which they will attend on October 23rd!!
BUT….why stop there? With some connections, I was able to reach out to Lara Mosby who was able to set up a meet and greet with Jessica Wooldridge King who is a professional Bassoonist for Symphoria!! Which will happen earlier in the day on October 23rd!
It was truly an honor and privilege to be able to give this gift to Logan. She really is the definition of a “Super Sibling”.
None of this would have been possible without some amazing people. Please join me in thanking everyone who helped to make this wish possible!!
