(Meredith)– A girl in Colorado had a rough begin to her birthday after the kids she welcomed to her celebration never appeared.
Leyana, now 7, had been dreaming about her princess party for months. When the day finally arrived, she wore her white ruffle gown and counted down the minutes until her schoolmates would arrive at her home in Arvada.
The first-grader was devastated when her buddies didn’t stroll through the door on Saturday.
“It was awful. It hurts. It hurts your heart.” Leyana’s mom, whose name was not divulged, informed KDVR.
The mom stated in spite of the frustrating turnout, her child’s birthday ended on a positive note, thanks to an unique Disney Princess.
Lindsay Robert, who was employed to portray Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen,” tried her best to make that tearful day a little better. She and Leyana played video games, danced, sang and formed a relationship.
“I wasn’t joking when I informed you that every princess is clever and brave and kind, and you are all those things,” Robert informed Leyana.
Robert later shared Leyana’s heartbreaking story on Facebook.
“It was soul squashing,” she wrote in a post.”This shy and soft-spoken woman had put on her best gown and waited. And waited. We played video games, sung songs, told stories, selected little prizes (I provided her my lipstick. I would have offered her the wig off my head if I might have).”
Thanks to the post, a number of individuals in their community are now working on a special birthday surprise for the 7-year-old, according to KDVR.
“Individuals get so hectic, but to raise the expectations of a kid and not deliver on that promise … simply be there,” Robert told the station. “Be there for the kids in your neighborhood. Be there for each other.”
