Welcome home Sara
She says it was a continuous effort at the hospital to resolve the issues.
They were now clear to return home.
They flew to St. John’s on Aug. 30, where Sara received followup care at the Janeway Children’s Hospital, and then made the journey back to the Northern Peninsula.
Now that Sara is back home, there were lots of happy faces to meet her.
At first, she was a little bit shy, clinging to her dad and hiding her face from the crowd.
“She’s just not used to so many people,” said Danielle. “But she was more excited when she got in the car and had her balloons. And there was a parade, so she was quite excited.”
After the parade, when they arrived at the town hall for the reception, the big bright contagious smile that everyone knows was back on Sara’s face to greet everyone there waiting.
There she received two gift bags while lots of hugs and smiles were exchanged on the joyous occasion.
Sara will now get to spend her birthday home in Main Brook as she turns four on Sept.18.
She has a Janeway visit scheduled for October.
The Main Brook town council and the recreation committee organized the event.
Danielle thanked the people of Main Brook for their support.
“Absolutely amazing today and we’ve always gotten such amazing support from this community,” she said. “Ever since we found out about Sara’s condition, they backed us 100 per cent and this just goes to show how amazing the town is.”
Danielle Galgay-Smith, Dave Smith and Sara Smith were greeted by Ticker Tom.
The Smith family is greeted by a large crowd as they arrive outside of Main Brook. At first, Sara was a little bit shy.
