A local mother is making a difference for parents going through a difficult loss.
Nicole Mutter and other volunteer mothers crochet small stuffed bears to give to parents who suffer a miscarriage or the loss of a child, it's a subject that hits close to home for the young mother after she recently lost twins.
In just two months, Mutter has sent out 120 handmade bears to parents from Roanoke to California.
"I don't think it's going to make the world shift for these moms, but I think it's definitely going to help them cope," said Mutter, the founder of Bears for Angel Babies.
"They have something that they can look at and they can remember that baby and it's just a memento for their loss because a lot of these moms don't have anything to remember their babies by," explained Crystal Fink, a midwife.
Mutter says the response to her efforts have been outstanding.
