Grand Rapids Mom Needs Help Finding Daughter’s Stuffed Animal From Deceased Dad
Growing up a child we all probably had something that held great sentimental value to us. It might have been a teddy bear or a blanky, for me it was my old baseball glove that was autographed by former Detroit Tigers player and coach Alan Trammell.
I had the chance to meet him at a Walmart where he was doing some kind of promotional event. I waited my turn in line and left the store with an autograph on my glove and a memory I'll never forget.
A few years later my mom was doing some cleaning in the garage and ended up donating my autographed Alan Trammell glove because she thought it was just my old one that I didn't need anymore. By the time I realized it, it was too late and I was crushed.
Now that experience is nowhere near as crushing as what one West Michigan mom is dealing with. Rachel Dombrowski needs help finding a stuffed frog that was given to her daughter Xannah Stark by her deceased father and was accidentally donated.
Earlier this month, Rachel Dombrowski was cleaning up her house and doing some decluttering. Her goal was to clean up the junk and donate some things to people in need. Somehow, during that process, her daughter's frog was tossed into the donation pile and dropped off at the Salvation Army.
That frog means a lot to Xannah because her dad passed away when she was six. Xannah said when she was younger, her family all kissed a heart and put it into the back of the stuffed animal.
