She made the decision to sell her baby’s crib after he passed away in order to acquire funds for the funeral.

Noah Watts was eagerly anticipated by Valerie Watts. She routinely underwent checkups and was always pleased to see him growing and receiving nutrition.

up until the baby’s final weeks of pregnancy. Because Noah’s umbilical cord was internally compressed, his oxygen supply was being cut off.

“I knew all week…

I was quite anxious because he wasn’t moving as much. Valerie thought back.

A son was born still to Valerie. She would never get to hold him when he cried or rock him to sleep. As a mother, she had lost all of her ambitions and dreams. She was inconsolable.

The devastated mother quickly made the decision to discard the crib she had purchased for Noah. She organized a garage sale so she could sell everything that made her think of her child.

Gerald Kumpula then noticed the garage sale. Gerald, a talented woodworker, became interested in the crib. He and his wife approached Valerie and inquired about the crib.

In his garage, Kumpula maintains a woodworking shop outside of Cokato.

His area of expertise is turning headboards and footboards into benches.

Gerald said, “She was kind of hesitant. “I was aware that she might not have wanted to sell it, but she did.”

Valerie admitted, “I hesitated when he asked me if I was selling it, that he manufactured benches.

She didn’t want to part with a crib that was intended for her baby son, which was natural.

Gerald’s wife started talking to Valerie as they both turned to look around.

Valerie described the conversation with Gerald’s wife:

“His wife was there looking through my garage sale — at some of the baby things — 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.”

The elderly couple were discussing something as they were on their way home when they hit upon a brilliant idea. They will return the crib they purchased after making a few minor adjustments.

Valerie didn’t anticipate the deliberate choice.

Gerald had the idea to use his skill at modifying and turning headboards and footboards into benches using Noah’s crib.

After only one week of meeting, Valerie was shocked by the husband and wife. They gave her their gift and left. They converted Noah’s crib into a chair so Valerie could sit in it by herself.

When Valerie saw and got the crib turned chair, she said, “I started crying instantaneously.”

What was once a distressing reminder of her infant son is now a seat. She needed a cushion she could sit on and be comforted by the pleasant memories of bearing Noah.

It’s incredible. Cokato is evidence that there are nice individuals in the world. Valerie went on.

Good people like Gerald and his wife are rays of hope in a world full with issues. They remind us that we have the freedom to make moral decisions every day. It’s up to us to spread the wealth.
