The loss of a teddy bear is tragic for any child, but for Brooklyn Andrews, it was devastating.
During a family trip to Disney World, she left her bear, Toby, behind. At 14, it shouldn’t be a big deal, but the bear was given to her by her late father before he deployed to Iraq. She was 3 when he gave her the bear. The bear had a recorded message and served as Brooklyn’s link to her dad’s voice.
Her father returned safely, but died suddenly a few years later.
Fast forward to 2014, and Toby was lost at a Disney resort. According to the Disney Park Blogs, the resort’s manager located Toby and was ready to send him home, but decided to give the bear a tour of the parks first.
When Toby got home, he wasn’t alone. He brought along a photo album of his trip. It looked like he had a ‘bear’-y good time.
