Vanassa Sebastian had a blast being Mrs.Connecticut 2012. So much fun, in fact, theNorwich native got a little sad thinking aboutpassing along the honor this spring.Don’t expect the nurse anesthetist, wife andmom to slow down though. In addition tobeing pageant-beautiful, Sebastian is a tirelessvolunteer (for Special Olympics, Make-A-WishFoundation and Dress for Success) and a proudbreast cancer survivor. Sebastian was diagnosedin 2011 with invasive breast cancer. She creditsa positive attitude, supportive family, excellentmedical care and faith with her recovery.A member of the Passamaquoddy Tribe of Perry,Maine, Sebastian grew up in Norwich and lives inLedyard with her husband, Brian, and daughter,Tyah Marie.

Her son’s obsession with a popular childhood fascination has led Sarah Edmond into an unexpected side job – robot maker.Edmond, a special education teacher at NFA’s Sachem Program and mother of three, decided that for her son’s fourth birthdayparty, she would make each of his friends a stued robot. The cuddly bots were so popular, Edmond started getting requests.In the past year or so, she’s made 600.Each one of the toys, called GrinchyBots (grinchybots.com), is a unique combination of fabric, buttons and other embellishments. Edmond also makes special bots called Memory Bots, in which she incorporates aT-shirt or other piece of fabric that holds special meaning. She has made such bots for children who lost a parent.Edmond, a lifelong resident of Norwich, is married to Craig Edmond, and they have three children, Abby, Sadie and Max. Thekids play an important role in GrinchyBot production.“They’re my hug-testers,” Edmond, 34, said. “Each bot has to pass the test before adoption.”
