Emma's Story

Hi, I’m Emma. When I was 9, I came up with an idea to help my little sister Olivia who was having nightmares. Her dreams were so bad that she didn’t even want to go in her room alone at night. My sisters and I all shared a room and she kept us up all night, so we were really tired! My mom tried everything but nothing worked. She was really tired too because my sister would wake her up a lot.
