Day 108: Purchased A Teddy Bear
Yesterday's post dealt with the pain of having a child kidnapped. Today's post also deals with the pain of losing a child. I apologize for having back to back days of such sad posts, but I was really affected by reading about a group of people looking to help families cope with the sadness of losing a baby. Since 2004, The Angel Teddy Bear Foundation has delivered teddy bears to parents in NICU who suffered the loss of a stillborn child, miscarriage or any other neonatal loss. Their goal is to help grieving parents, and to make it so that no mother or father has to leave the hospital empty handed. It is a small token, but one that I believe goes a long way with helping parents cope. So today, for my random act of kindness, I purchased one of the teddy bears to be donated to parents.
