ST. LOUIS – Kaelyn Iduwe was extremely upset by the cancelation of her sixth birthday party in April 2020. Now she’s 7.
Over a year ago, Kaelyn’s grandmother sent FOX 2 a video of the family trying, in vain, to calm Kaelyn’s cries.
Kaelyn: “It ruined my party.” Mom: “What ruined your party.” Kaelyn: “The coronavirus.”
For many, that was the first indication of how much COVID would change their lives. Some didn’t get it, but Kaelyn clearly did.
A year later, we ask her how she coped with growing and learning during the age of COVID-19. We ask her mother Erica how she is keeping her kids on track and healthy. Also, both give advice to families struggling during this time.
