Elianna's dad has been away at military training for months so she hasn't been able to see him. She misses him dearly and it's been really hard for her to not see her daddy on a daily basis.
Her dad knows how hard it's been so he decided to surprise her with a very special birthday present. He went to his local Build-A-Bear workshop and got her a special army bear. He also recorded himself talking to her and put the device inside the bear. So now whenever Elianna squeezes the bears hand, she hears her daddy's voice.
In this video, you can see her precious reaction as she opens her present. Elianna absolutely loved the gift. What an amazing idea for a child missing their parent. This is going to help Elianna so much when her father is away. How sweet!
