After spending time at the Ronald McDonald house watching her baby sister struggle to survive, this week’s good kid took it upon herself to give back to other families there going through the same heart-wrenching experience.
She took gifts, made a meal, and even donated her hair. “I love them”. Quinlan Cullen is clearly quite fond of her younger siblings and she takes her role as big sister very seriously. “I teach… to read and how to do math and now he’s like better than me…” but there was a time when she was very scared about her baby sister’s health.
“I didn’t know what was going to happen to Georgia because she was really sick.” Quinlan’s baby sister, Georgia, was born at just 26 weeks. “Their family life was totally disrupted they moved to Pittsburgh, stayed in Ronald McDonald house; Quinlan was so brave. “Through this agonizing process… Quinlan helped relieve some of the burden by caring for her little brother.” They were so good because of Quinlan’s example; “she would sit very quietly and play with her brother. She knew how serious everything was while we were there.”
And Quinlan continues to be a positive influence in her family and her community. She is a “very sweet, loving, kind, generous young lady”.
