Stolen Teddy Bear With Recording Of Late Mother's Message Returned

Thank goodness for good people! 

In Vancouver, British Columbia, Mara Soriano was moving when she had items stolen from her backpack. The items were important documents, an iPad, and the most important, a teddy bear. This wasn't just a teddy bear, it was special. The bear had a voice recording of Soriano's late mother, who had passed away in 2019. 

Safe to say, it was irreplaceable. 

Soriano told CBC, "At hospice her voice was different. Much softer. Not the mom I grew up with. That bear is the last memory I have of her speaking in her normal voice."

Anyone else's eyes getting a bit (or a lot) misty? 

We're just so happy to find out this heartbreaking tale does have a happy ending. Read on to see the full story:
