You see, this Build-A-Bear is not your ordinary Build-A-Bear, as it had the woman’s late mother’s voice recorded and put into a custom Build-A-Bear after her mother went into hospice care for cancer treatment.

Soriano, 28, had her late mother’s voice recorded and put into a custom Build-A-Bear after her mother went into hospice care for cancer treatment.

“At hospice her voice was different. Much softer. Not the mom I grew up with,” she told CBC. “That bear is the last memory I have of her speaking in her normal voice. She said that she loved me and she was proud of me and that she’ll always be with me.”
