One of the biggest concerns a young children might have while traveling is of losing their toys. For six-year-old Paisley, this fear became a reality as she lost one of her most treasured items: a teddy bear that has a recording of her father’s voice who is stationed overseas in Kosovo.

Losing Her Friend

For Paisley, her teddy bear named Lucy symbolizes “love and special.” As she describes, every squeeze is like receiving a hug from her father, a member of the United States Army National Guard. The bear has a recording of her father’s voice in order for Paisley to still hear him while he’s away overseas.

So, when she lost her special friend at Rhode Island’s T.F. Green Airport, she never thought she would see the bear again.
But, one person wasn’t going to let that happen.
