(WPTV) A boy’s baseball glove lost 40 years ago somehow made its way from a family’s hometown in Ohio to a Goodwill store in Jupiter, Florida.

Miraculously, that boy’s mother, Julie Anne Lisi, found it there last week.

"I just walked in and there sitting on the edge of a shelf on the bottom shelf was this mitt, sitting so that I could see the name, ‘Christopher Lisi’ on it," Julie Anne Lisi said.

Julie Anne and Mike Lisi, from Ohio, are spending time in their home in Tequesta this month. They were visiting Goodwill in Jupiter for senior day on Wednesday when Julie Anne spotted the mitt with her son’s name on it in his own handwriting. She also noticed her own handwriting just inside of it.

"My knees got wobbly and I got weak and scared," Julie Anne said.

An emotional Julie Anne called over her husband to show him her discovery.

"She was in tears, shaking then she showed me the glove and I understood," Mike said.
