A postman has been successful in the search for the parents of an 8-year-old girl after he discovered a letter written by the child and addressed to her dad in heaven.
On Monday, a postman within the Braunstone area in Leicester got his heart melted after discovering a letter written by a child in the mailbox. In a Facebook post, the man revealed the letter was addressed to the child's dad in heaven.
According to the postman, he saw the emotional letter after emptying a red pillar box on Bewicke Road near Folville avenue. Efforts to identify the parents of the child were put in place.

The postman, who was identified as Simon, explained in the post that with the permission of the child's parents, he would have loved to give the kid a little "something."
He could resonate with the circumstance easily because he lost his father last year and found it difficult to bear the burden. According to him, he could only imagine what the child was going through.

Facebook users and the general public who possessed any details on the whereabouts of the child or parents were urged to come forward.
In a report released yesterday, it was revealed Simon's pleas were not in vain as he was able to successfully track down the 8-year-old's mother, Sarah Tully. He returned the Father's Day letter for fear of it being thrown away.
The mother accused the nursery of teaching children that men do not matter.
According to the information, Simon gave the little girl a beautiful father and daughter figurine as a gift. The toddler had lost her dad when she was 4 months old and struggled to cope.
Tully noted that posting letters with messages of love helped her daughter cope. She added that the pain might have been more for the 8-year-old this year because she was more emotional.

The proud mom finally revealed that she was going to keep the letter and the prints of the comments from Simon's Facebook post in a special box for her daughter when she is older.
In another story, a sit-at-home mother, Karla Gardner, was left fuming with rage after her 3-year-old daughter's nursery renamed Father's Day to "Special's Day."

According to a statement, Gardner saw her daughter's painting of her dad on a card. However, she got infuriated after seeing "Happy Special's Day" written boldly on it. The mother accused the nursery of teaching children that men do not matter.
Gardner revealed the nursery told her that it was unfair for kids without dads to make a Father's Day card. Although the mother was upset about the change, her husband was okay with it.
In another terrible news, the family of Queenie Roux were thrown into a state of mourning yesterday, following the loss of the mother of six in a car crash, which also claimed the life of her 3-year-old child.
According to a report, the 28-year-old mother who traveled from Sebring, Florida, to Atlanta was in search of a fresh start for her and her kids. The terrible accident occurred on Interstate 75 in Clayton County, near Forest Parkway at exit 237.
