Teddy bear gift a heart warmer

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

WE were at Costco, and a ran­dom stranger bought a Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion teddy bear for my three-year-old daugh­ter.

He told me that his girls were young adults now, and that they’d been blessed with healthy kids — and he wished the same for our lit­tle princess.

I didn’t get a chance to tell him that I was a Chil­dren’s Hospi­tal kid, and that my daugh­ter grow­ing up healthy is my heart’s big­gest wish.

He left as quickly as he came, and I just sat there with tears stream­ing down my face (and the hap­pi­est lit­tle girl sit­ting be­side me).

In­cred­i­ble. I just wanted to say thank you to this man, who­ever his is, for fol­low­ing his heart. You will never know how much you en­cour­aged me.
