It’s tough for parents and children alike when a loved one is in the military. Any little thing to help close the gap of that distance helps.
For the toddler in the video above, a stuffed bear from her father — deployed for the next several months — is a treasure.
And when she squeezes its hand, she hears her fathers voice!
“This is my Granddaughter with a bear that has my sons voice recorded on it,” Larry Bert wrote on YouTube. “… My son has been deployed in the military and was gone for 1 month before P’s Mother gave her the bear. He will return home late summer and his wife is pregnant and due late April with their second girl. My son won’t see her in person until she’s 4 months old.”
What a wonderful video!
