Three-year-old McKenzy was devastated when she misplaced her toy giraffe Raffi, which comforts her anytime her Daddy is away on deployment. When the stuffed animal does show up - the tot discovers the meaning of "happy tears."
McKenzy has a lovie-blanket shaped like a giraffe, which she likes to call Raffi. The two have been inseparable over the years. Anytime the toddler has been sick, misses her Daddy, or is simply going to bed - she has her friend right by her side. Unfortunately though, when the family was packing up to make another move, Raffi was nowhere to be found...
For 11 days McKenzy and her parents looked for the giraffe. Then one day when they were unpacking their final boxes, there was Raffi! The parents wanted to surprise their daughter, so they placed her companion in the fridge. When McKenzy sees the lovie, she grabs it and gives it a hug. She asks her parents why her eyes are watering. They tell her, "It's because you're happy!" Suddenly, McKenzy starts crying hard...her FIRST happy tears!
