Valerie Watts of Cokato, Minnesota gave birth to a still-born. The whole nine months of joyful anticipation quickly became the most heart-wrenching moment of her life. She suffered a grief only a loving mother can understand.
To ease her sadness, Watts decided to let go of her baby’s belongings at a yard sale. That’s when she met a craftsman named Gerald Kumpula and his wife — who took an interest in the baby crib.
Watts shared her story, prompting the couple to do something incredibly beautiful.
It may take a while for Watts to get over her grief. But thanks to good people like Gerald Kumpula, the anguish becomes more bearable.
“There’s good people out there. There’s proof,” Watts said.
