Mr. Plushy Bear

This is Mr. Plushy Bear. He met my son while he was on yet another referral visit at the Kennedy Krieger Institute. We met him after a horrible day that ended on this simple act of kindness. The nurse had handed the bear to him so he would not wiggle so much while going through triage. She took one look at Mumu's face with the bear and said "keep it" and smiled at him. He slept with Plushy Bear next to his pillow that night. I felt someone in the world understood why I loved him and was moved by that personality and Mumu just being himself. No judgement, just two people and a child loving a toy. It was heaven.
