Hello all,
I wanted to update you on my son’s stuffed bear that we lost along the Camino back in May/June 2018!
SHE HAS BEEN FOUND :)
After recently going through some photos of our trip I zoomed in on a photo when we were staying at Bar Corisco in Mos/ Redondela and sure enough she was stuck between the beds that had been pushed together! We were able to contact Oscar and Anna via email who were so sweet and helpful. The next thing you know they are responding with a photo of Weetie!
They were more than willing to help us get Weetie home and she is now on her way having just passed through customs via UPS :)
Thank you to those of you who responded and were on the lookout for her! And if you are looking for a place to stay between Mos and Redondela, please consider Bar Corisco. We new it was a sweet and special place when we were there but this help they are willing to give us confirms that even more!!
Blessings to you on your travels,

Ooohhh, that's great news that Weetie was found! Your post last year was so heartbreaking! Hopefully it wil go through customs quickly and will arrive soon to tell you all the adventures it had along its longer camino! :D

And I was looking at some photos, I believe we stopped at Corisco to have some juice and coffee during our camino in 2017. The camino indeed has so many special moments!

Oh it was heartbreaking not only for my son who was missing a beloved friend he’d had since birth but for me who suggested he bring her along...and at night he’d ask, do you think we’ll ever get her back?! :(
It’s hard to believe it’s been almost a year! And with so many joys and wonderments we had some hard learned lessons on the Camino, truly life changing and so life and family affirming for us! Thank you for your kind thoughts!!!

Have you told him that Weetie is coming back? Must be hard to manage expectations! Hopefully little bear will arrive soon and safe :)
We have! I don’t think he’ll believe it till he sees her. ;) thank you for your kind thoughts!

She looks too slim after being on her own too long. Prepare some Spanish tortilla for her homecoming party. :)

I thought of you and all who are happy to have Weetie home, today, looking at a tiny little child trotting along at the side of her mother, legs going like pistons, still not fully in control of them, and holding on to her version of Weetie! Is there anything more designed to draw the "Ah!" out of us than such a sight!

Oh so so true! Thank you for that visual and for thinking of us. It is good to have her back home. ❤ Such a simple object but such a powerful pull on the heart!
