Maisie's Dream Story

Maisie's dream come true

Four-year-old Maisie lives in Aberdeenshire with her parents and brother Callum. Maisie frequently has epileptic seizures, so needs a specially adapted bed to make sure that she is safe at night when she sleeps. This makes spending time away from home overnight impossible for Maisie.

Maisie dreamed of following in the footsteps of her brother Callum and going for her first ever sleepover at her grandparents’ house. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to give Maisie a night to remember.

Often, a child’s dream is simply to be able to do what others around them are doing. Maisie’s brother Callum goes to their grandparents all the time and stays overnight, but for little Maisie this just wasn’t possible.

Maisie has her own special needs bed at home, but her grandparents don’t have anywhere safe for her to sleep at their house. Maisie’s bed is specially adapted to make sure she can’t fall out in the night and hurt herself, which is really important in case she has a seizure.

Maisie dreamed of joining her brother overnight at her grandparents, house but to achieve that, she would need a special portable bed that could go with her.

Her sleepover dream came true in the form of a brand new purple travel pod – a safe space bed decorated with butterflies! The bed is fully portable and can be popped up at her grandparents’ house when it’s time for Maisie to go to bed… if she can actually sleep from all the excitement, that is!

Now that Maisie has her new travel pod, not only can she have her dream sleepovers at her grandparents with Callum, but it might mean she is able to go on holiday with her family in the future too.

 “Thank you to everyone at Dreams Come True for making my daughter’s dream a reality. Her travel bed has arrived so we are able to go on holiday and know that she will be safe at night.

We’re already planning her first over sleepover at Grandma and Grandad’s house. None of this would of been possible without you xx. ”

Maisie’s mother, Jude
