This is How the Teddy Bear Clinic Got Started

Twenty-five years ago I took my 6-year-old daughter to the Peoria Zoo and as chance would have it one of the Peoria hospitals was holding a stuffed animal day at the Zoo.

OK, let the debate begin but for my money daughters are the greatest. I say that because my daughter has a birthday today. I'd say it the other 364 days of the year as well. I didn't want to wake her this morning so I text her telling her that her birth was the greatest thing that ever happen to me and I meant every word of it.
