Bruce Templeton meets youth Santa’s helped at Chapters signing

Bruce Templeton chats with Charlotte at Chapters

Charlotte’s proud parents Andrea and John very much looked forward to taking their daughter to Bruce Templeton’s recent signing for The Man in the Red Suit at Chapters on September 29 in St. John’s.  Charlotte was one of the young children that Bruce helped to meet Santa back when she was too young to remember. Born in October 2002, she was one of the children who spent Christmas in the hospital that year, weighing only a few hundred grams after arriving prematurely.

Andrea discovered The Man in the Red Suit after reading an article about it in The Telegram by Tara Bradbury, “I happened to be on Google News one day and a headline about a man in the red suit caught my eye under local Newfoundland and Labrador news,” she said.

“I clicked on it for curiosity and as soon as I started reading the column it was like I was struck with a ton of bricks! I immediately began to cry as I knew what was coming next. So many emotions came flooding back about that time when Charlotte was at the Janeway. As we had mentioned [at the book signing] there were many ups and downs during her stay there but by the time December came she had vastly improved. Things were looking up!”

Andrea and John were thankful for Charlotte’s visit with Santa that Bruce had arranged and were excited themselves to meet the real-deal.  It was something fun, uplifting, and positive for the whole family to focus on at the time.  The remarkable meeting also led way to tradition Andrea adds, “Charlotte had her own little Christmas tree there and we have had a family tradition each year since then. Every year we talk about her first Christmas and how Santa came to visit. Then she decorates her little tree and we put it in a special place in our house to remind us of the miracle we received.”

Thanks to Andrea, John, and Charlotte for sharing their story with us.
