Special Notice  as of 05/19/2013 - After much consideration and prayer, I have decided to make a special arrangement for families that have lost a child under the age of 16. These bears will be created with no labor charge up to one year after loss. Families will only incur cost of shipping and materials to create the bear. I really enjoy making them and I know how they can touch the heart of a recipient, especially a grieving parent.
