Teddy bears may just be toys, but they are treasured by many kids because they are cuddly and comforting. These fluffy stuffed animals are also great cuddle buddies for the young ones at night. However, some teddy bears may have stories with them that are more intense that your regular children's story.
Amaya, 6, visited her neighbor’s garage sale. She was kindly given the chance to choose which toys she wanted to bring home. One of which she chose was a tanned-color teddy bear.
When the young girl brought the bear at home, it was accidentally stepped on by their dog. Amaya was shocked when she heard a noise coming from the toy. Apparently, inside was a recording and the thing was used as a way to transport a very special message from Afghanistan.
The voice heard from the teddy bear may actually belong to a soldier. He wished his family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. The man also mentioned that he missed and loved them very much ad that he would see them soon.
The little girl brought the toy to her mother, Amanda. When the mom heard the message, she was touched as she could relate to the supposed receiver of the bear. In fact, her husband is a Marine and she knew how scary it is not to know whether your loved one is safe or not.
Amanda understands how hard it is to have your husband away. So she decided to return the bear to its supposed owner. She had asked the neighbor who put it on sale, but apparently, they had no idea where it was from. Amanda opted to use social media because of its wider reach.
The mother shared the photos of the bear and took a video of the touching recording. She is hoping that the bear could make its way to its original owners. Amanda had even visited “Good Morning America” just to ask for help regarding the recipient of the toy. She had also contacted the manufacturer, but they did no help either.
From an update that Amanda posted, it appears that she may have already found the bear’s owners. See her Facebook post:
