Healing Play, Inc.
Creators of the Fairy Wonderland Park
We are a group of parents who have a vision of honoring some pretty special children who left this earth WAY too soon….. Ava, Tyler and Ellery. After the loss of a child, there is NOTHING worse than the thought of people forgetting your child. So, we put our broken hearts and minds together and have come up with a way to remember our children while creating joy for others.
We would be honored if you would share this page with others and help us raise funds for this magical place!

My name is Bethany Christianson and I have lived in Prescott, Wisconsin for 14 years with my husband Jay. I am also the Mother of Ava and Audrey. In October 2017 our family lost Ava after a 5 year battle with Leukemia. Ava was a happy girl that loved to be with her friends and also loved being with younger children, especially her Sister. I am passionate about building the Fairy Wonderland Park because it is a unique and whimsical park for children of all ages and I know Ava would have loved everything about it.
My name is Alison Ennenga. I am a wife and proud mother of 5 wonderful children, Brahm, Aubryn, Emilyn, Ellery and Bryar. On July 26th, 2015 our hearts were broken and our lives were forever changed when our 2 year old daughter, Ellery, drown. Since that day, I made a commitment to carry on Ellery’s Legacy by putting smiles on other’s faces through acts of kindness, spreading love, and helping many people in her name. I am thrilled to be a director for Healing Play where we will create a magical and mystical life size Fairy Wonderland Park honoring Ellery, Ava and Tyler- creating smiles and sharing their legacy for years to come.
My name is December Orpen. I am blessed to be called mom by 6 amazing children, Carly, Courtney, Ryan, Tyler, Hunter & Carter. On July 5, 2016 our worst nightmare came true and shattered all of our hearts forever when our son Tyler died tragically in a car accident. I am excited to be the Vice President of Healing Play. It warms my heart knowing we are collaborating to make a magical and fun life sized Fairy Wonderland Park where Ava, Ellery and Tyler’s memory & legacy will bring Joy to children and parents for years to come!
My name is Mindy Allsop. I live with my husband Josh and three children, Alayna, Addyson and Adyn, on a small hobby farm in Western Wisconsin. My daughter Addy was best friends with Bethany’s daughter Ava. After Ava passed away Addy has been having a hard time dealing with her grief. The Fairy Garden was meant to be a place of healing, while at the same time honoring Ava, Tyler and Ellery. I am so honored to be a part of Healing Play and all it stands for.
