This is a letter to the person who stole an American Girl doll from my 7-year-old granddaughter on Friday, May 2, around 6:15 p.m. at Woodfield Mall. I wanted you to know that you broke her heart! My granddaughter has had that doll for two years, she was sitting on a bench with her family in the mall, the doll was next to her, and in a flash it was gone. I hope you plan on giving it to another little girl, and perhaps she will be happy and enjoy the doll as much as my granddaughter did!

I know these dolls are very expensive, so are you going to try to sell it? What price are you going to put on it? Is it really worth hurting a little girl? Maybe you didn't think much about it, but that is all that she is thinking about now. Imagine if someone took your cellphone -- you would be very upset. Well that is how a little 7-year-old girl feels tonight wondering where her doll is. That doll was as important to her as your phone is to you. What is our world coming to when someone steals a doll from a little girl?
