Drew was being deployed for 8 months, and wanted to leave his baby daughter something to remember him by.
So Drew and his wife Kelly got a personalized teddy bear for their toddler Pia.
A month after his deployment, Pia must have been missing her father. But when she hugged her new bear, she instantly recognized the voice saying “Hi P, I love you. See you soon.”
“Yay! Dad!” she shouted, hugging the bear. She plays it over and over in the short video below taken by her grandfather.
