A New Hampshire family has a message for the person who recently stole Mary from their Nativity scene.
Shirl Kula of Manchester, New Hampshire, told NECN that she and her husband have displayed their antique Nativity scene in their yard almost every Christmas during the 16 years they've lived in their home. Kula said they’ve never tied down the statues because “it belongs to the neighborhood."
But this year, she said someone stole the statue of Mary.
When they realized their Mary statue was missing from their yard, the couple placed a handwritten note by the Nativity scene that reads: "Please help! Mary missing, Joseph doesn't want to be a single dad!"
“Truly, Joseph doesn’t want to be a single dad,” Kula said. “Nobody does.”

Kula said she has no hard feelings for the culprit.
“We don’t care who did it, we don’t care why you did it,” Kula said, adding, “Just bring her back.”
Kula hopes the representation of the holy family is reunited in time for Christmas. She said she and her husband wait to add the statue of the baby Jesus until Christmas Day.
