Much more than a teddy bear…
One of the ways we want to encourage families and bring a smile to a child with special needs is to provide this cuddly beanie bear at no cost. We have found this to be a particularly hopeful touch for a family in the hospital with their child on Christmas day and for parents spending their baby’s first days in neonatal ICU. This bear is also sent to children when they are signed up for the VIP Birthday Club! (For more information on that, click here.)
“When I received a teddy bear from Nathaniel’s Hope, it felt so comforting…It was unexpected at a moment that I really needed something. It had just come in and my daughter says, ‘Look mom, I have a teddy bear, look,’ and right now she has a name for it, her dad’s name, ‘Hector’ [who just had a heart attack] and it’s really been a blessing.” -VIP MOM
