“After I gave birth to Lucia I had to stay in the hospital for four months. Lance was home by himself with a new baby and Stolli. Stolli gave him a calmness, stability, and normalcy during that time. Even now, as he pets her I see a clam come over him.
Stolli really pulls our family together, adding so much fun and laughter as we make up stories through her voice. She gives Lucia someone to talk to and imagine with on her level. She calls Stolli her sister, and it’s true! Stolli made us parents in the beginning. Now she is teaching Lucia to be compassionate and empathetic as they play. Lucia imagines Stolli has puppies and it’s Lucia’s job to take the puppies so Stolli can rest.”
