I was given Ted when I was born in September of 1996 by my uncle. He sat on a shelf in my bedroom till one day I decided I wanted him. My mom said I was staring at him and pointing and she gave him to me. He has been with me ever since. He has been left at restaurants, family members houses, thrown out the car window and even thrown in the garbage by some mean kids down the street. He has always made it back to me. I am about to be 25 and he still sleeps with me every night. Over the years his fluffy yellow fur and pink nose and ears have worn down into colorless bare fabric. His once very full head is now flat and misshapen. His seams are starting to come undone. He has countless threads in him that were hand stitched into him by my grandmother to keep him together. I worry about the day he falls apart completely. I would love to get him repaired if possible but I don’t want to loose all the quality’s that’s make him my Ted. I now have a son who is almost 7 months old. I would love to be able to find out where my Ted came from and maybe be able to find my son his own Ted.
