A scrapbook of a baby girl's first year was found on the side of a road in Waterbury this week.
A Naugatuck mother is trying to get the scrapbook back to its rightful owner in time for Christmas and she needs the public’s help.
“They put a lot of effort into it, a lot of time and effort,” Rhonda Reichardt, of Naugatuck, said.
Buried in the trunk of a car filled with donated items, Reichardt said her boyfriend first spotted the pink scrapbook.
Reichardt said the album was found outside of an abandoned home on Washington Street.
Filled with beautiful pictures of a baby and her parents, Reichardt said she can't believe it was tossed out intentionally.
“Pictures, they can invoke a lot of feelings, a lot of things that happen in the moment that a simple memory cannot,” Reichardt said.
Determined to find the family, Reichardt said she took to Facebook. Her post has already been shared almost 1,600 times.
Reichardt said she's hoping someone will recognize the parents or the labor of love they put together for their baby girl.
“It's different when you can flip through. It's almost like history,” Reichardt said.
If you recognize the album or the photos, please contact Sujata Jain by emailing her at email@example.com.
