Cozy evenings by the fire. An old-fashioned carriage ride. Twinkling holiday lights. Five-year-old Mia’s wish to visit the Von Trapp Family Lodge provided an enchanted time of togetherness. With their hearts and minds dwelling in joy, rather than the challenges of Mia’s life-threatening metabolic disorder, Mia and her family ushered in the holiday season.
Mia’s wintery wish offered a welcome change of scenery. Mia gazed with wonder at the holiday lights as she explored the resort, nestled in the Vermont mountains. On a carriage ride, she felt the fresh air on her face and listened to the gentle sound of the horses’ hooves as they led her through Vermont’s beautiful landscape.
Snuggling up with her parents by the fire in the evenings, Mia’s face reflected the fire’s soft glow as she listened to her favorite tales. Far from doctors and hospitals, Mia and her family felt the true warmth of the holiday season through her wish, spending meaningful quiet time together in a storybook setting.
