Well, I don't think there will ever be another Patches... but we can replace him with another mascot to "patch up" broken hearts.
That said, I will send the replacement out to the next person on the list on October 15, 2012, three years to the day that Patches left on his trip. Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.
But first! We must decide who will replace Patches... and what their name will be! Here are a couple of pictures. Take a look and then vote for your choice in the comments. The one with the most comments by October 12 will be the one to go. Also in the comments, please offer any names you can suggest!
1. Dark Brown Bear With Heart
2. Light Brown Bear with Heart (the same as Patches)
3. White Bear With Heart
4. Dark Bear without Heart
5. Dark Brown Bunny
6. Light Brown Bunny
7. White Bunny
Time to vote! Comments to this post will close on October 12th at 11:59 PM.
