Mourning mom sells stillborn baby’s crib for $2: A week later, buyer returns it transformed

Expecting a child has to be one of the most wonderful feelings in the world. The anticipation of the happy times that will follow the birth of that bundle of joy excites the parents-to-be.Valerie Watts was excited to see her baby’s face, but her joy and heart were crushed when she gave birth to a stillborn baby boy.
Her pregnancy was going swimmingly for the first few months, but then everything changed.

Baby Noah’s umbilical cord was pinched in the womb, and his life was cut short before it even began. Watts was overcome with sadness. Although her baby did not survive, she was unwilling to part with the crib she had purchased for him, and keeping it at home served as a reminder of the tragedy that had befallen her.Gerald Kumpula recalled, “she was a little hesitant.” “I suspected she didn’t want to sell it, but she did.”

Kumpula lived a few miles away and had a workshop on Cokato’s outskirts. He was interested in buying the crib when he saw it at the Watts family garage sale, even though it wasn’t on sale. “I hesitated when he asked if I was selling that, that he made benches,” Watts admitted. Kumpulas were unaware of the significance of the crib at the time.

“His wife was there looking through my garage sale — at some of the baby clothes — and asked how old my son was since I don’t use the crib anymore, and I told her that he had passed in July,” Watts said. Kumpulas was aware that the crib belonged to the Watts family, so after transforming it, he decided to return it to them.
Kumpulas’ crib bench serves as a reminder of the sad times, but it also serves as a symbol of comfort for the bereaved parents.
