Back to Rufus Ruby Visits the Beauregard Family

The Beauregard Family, Otsego, Michigan

August 4, 2003

On August 4, our family is packed and ready to vacation in Ohio. We are meeting family for a day at Cedar Point and the Toledo Zoo. As the family loads the car, the mailman arrives. She has a special delivery for Hannah. Inside the box was Ruby #4! Perfect timing!

After we loaded the car, you could hear Hannah introducing Ruby to Rufus (her own bear). The next two days will be fun for everyone… but today, we drive. We have a five hour drive from Plainwell to Sandusky.

It has been a long wait for Ruby's visit. But… the smiles, hugs, and memories will be here forever. Thanks for the visit!

The last couple weeks have been fun. It was interesting to read about Ruby's travels and the friends she has made. Ruby had a great time at Cedar Point and the Toledo Zoo. She enjoyed a family bike ride. We rode 7.5 miles.

Rufus has made a terrific impact on Hannah. And, Ruby has added to the support with her stories and visit.

Hannah's Story is on the site under Parents Links.
