When I started this blog I hoped we could help parents help each other by providing a place for them to share photos and stories about the lost and bedraggled animals and dolls their precious children were grieving over. I hoped adults could use our site to get help finding special toys from their own childhoods, too.
When we get emails like these, I know it WORKS! And the time we spend and readers like Tami and Danielle spend making this site work is well worth it.
Hello! First..I am a true believer of your site and search it frequently in hopes of helping a child/family if possible. I believe I am able today to reunite a sad little girl with her most beloved doggie friend who was lost in a move!
While shopping at a local Amvets today..I came across this floppy fellow..and he looked familiar. When I did a “dog” search on your site…behold..there he was!
I am having a bit of a bad day today..so will you give me the chance to at least make someone else’s day!! 🙂 the number of the search is #022608-1 I thank you very much!! I am a pediatric cancer nurse..so I understand the importance of such objects..every Wednesday..I go “lovey” searching for my daughter, my patients, or for anyone who could use a friend! (It’s darn good therapy for me too!) Please have this mom email me..and have a great day yourself!
[pinit] We got Meg’s Doe Doe in the mail last night! It is the exact same one. I am so thankful for your website. I felt that asking for help to find the Doe Doe was a shot in the dark, but I was desperate for help.
A wonderful woman named Danielle visits your site and tries to keep her eyes open as she shops around. She found an exact replica of the Doe Doe at one of her local stores and bought him for us. She contacted us and sent us pictures to confirm it was the right one. Danielle and her daughter Honour sent her priority mail to Meg. Honour made a card for Meg that was so sweet.
We gave the Doe Doe to Meg, and it was the sweetest reunion. First we gave Meg Honour’s card and explained that another very nice girl had found her Doe Doe.
Meg’s eyes got really wide and she said, “Is my Doe Doe in that box?” That is when we let her open the box.
She kept hugging the Doe Doe and jumping around. Meg (who is almost 4 and thinks she is a princess) kept saying “Oh, Doe Doe, I can’t believe we lived happily ever after.” She also told me that she was so happy because now she didn’t need to cry anymore. She hasn’t put her Doe Doe down since.
I can’t tell you happy she is. My husband and I are overwhelmed by how wonderfully this has turned out.
Thank you for all the time and energy you spend running this site. It is truly a miracle for us. Thank you very much.
We will be frequent visitors of your site in hopes that we can help in another reunion for someone else.
Please be sure you use an email address that is correct, and that you will be using for a long time!! I can’t help you if I can’t contact you!!
