Theme details

Balloons and Rainbows - Blow-up balloons (not hot air balloons). Actual rainbows preferred rather than rainbow-coloured things. *Note not her real name, whoever is doing the label, please email me for it :)

Child Interests

Cherry adores anything bright and loud! She loves rainbows and bling. Cherry is a very girly girl who loves anything sparkly. She doesn’t have a favourite colour but veers towards bright bold colours.


Cherry is a twin to twin survivor born at 26 weeks. Sadly due to difficult circumstances lots of Cherry's medical needs were not met. In the last six months Cherry has had a peg fitted and undergone bilateral hip reconstruction with the added complication of a broken femur.

Despite her very difficult early years Cherry is a very cheeky little girl who is full of determination. She lights up the room and is quite the comedian. Cherry continues to amaze all who know her in how resilient she is and how much she has progressed in the last two years.
