Mummy heard that a local hospital was recruiting teddy bears and so Blue and Little Ted went off to find out what it was all about. When Blue came back he was on his own and he said that Little Ted had been given a very important job and was staying at the hospital.
So I asked Blue what it was about and he said he wanted to talk to all the little guys because there was something special that they could do. They could all be Special Memory Bears. He said the hospital people said he was too big for the job but Little Ted was just right. So he called all the little teds together and explained.
Sometimes when human people have babies their babies aren't very well and they don't get to keep them for long. It makes the mummies very sad that their babies go to heaven and my mummy said she understood because she would be very upset if she couldn't keep us.
So the people at the hospital make up Memory Boxes that have a photo of the baby and hand and foot prints and a piece of their clothes and a special Teddy. And the box helps the mummies after their poorly babies go to Heaven. And that's what Little Ted had gone off to do.
I'm so proud because all of our little teds said that they wanted to be Special Memory Bears and go off to the hospital to help the sad mummies. We'll miss them all but we know they are doing something REALLY IMPORTANT and everyone should help other people to feel better and we can be proud of them.
My mummy took all their photos so we won't forget them.
