History of  Brass Button Bears
On a sunny winters day in 1900 June Goodridge,
a seamstress in upstate Maine, opened the door
to find a baby on her porch.
He was wrapped in a simple blanket
She cared for the baby and their bond became so strong
that she adopted the child and named him Joshua.
When Joshua was eight, he made a teddy bear on his mothers
sewing machine.
He dressed it in the clothes of the day and fastened a
brass button to it.
The bear became his friend and every ten years
Joshua made another special bear.
He went on to become successful in business and life,
with a happy marriage and ten children
In the year 2000 Joshua Goodridge will celebrate
his 100th Birthday.
To this day he tells his children and grandchildren
the story of how the bears bring luck and
prosperity to his life.
