Healing garden to open at children's hospital in DC

Ivanka Trump shared a sweet message to celebrate First Lady Melania Trump’s birthday

Upon returning from Germany, Ivanka shared an adorable video of herself playing with her youngest child, Theodore.

During Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, her most notable public appearance occurred in late March at the Department of State, where she pledged the U.S. would closely monitor nations that fail to protect women's rights and work to combat gender-related violence.

Melania Trump also is not expected to be a very active First Lady when she moves into the presidential residence on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, a transition she plans to make once her 11-year-old son Barron finishes his current school year, EFE news reported. Located on the 3rd floor roof, the garden will be a place where patients and their families can enjoy "fresh air and handsome views", the first lady said. She visited the Children's National Health System in Washington on Friday to speak at the dedication of a hospital garden. One young patient presented her with a picture.

Inspiration for the children's hospital garden came from a patient whose last wish was to go outside, the hospital said. All of the living first ladies agreed in 2014 to serve as honorary chairs of the garden, which was built in part with a $5 million donation from the estate of Bunny Mellon, the late Washington philanthropist. That story became a campaign, and a 7,200-square-foot gravel rooftop was transformed into a place that kids, parents and caregivers can use - for many patients, it's the only outdoor space they see in months. Sasha and Malia Obama, who arrived at the White House when they were aged seven and 10, attended Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. Mellon wrote for the White House Historical Association. "She was very particular about things, and she would have been very impressed". "Paying little attention to that doubt, he bubbled with enthusiasm, with fascinating details of how he wanted a garden to appeal to the most discriminating taste, yet a garden that would hold a thousand people for a ceremony". While his grandmother tried every medical treatment possible to help her, their best moments were sitting outside, together, in her garden.
