How did you find out about us?: Through your website

The bear we received was tagged in honour of?: Baby Harrison 07.08.14

Comments: My Husband & I have just experienced our first miscarriage and are absolutely devastated. We had been trying to conceive our little miracle for 3 years with many health complications and were just about to start ivf when we found out we had fallen pregnant naturally. We were told we'd never have children and then were blessed with our Little One only to find out that our pregnancy wasn't viable. The pain is real and agonising but I have found a bit of comfort in your website and being able to connect with those who have been through something similar.
We were told at 8 weeks that I had suffered from a missed miscarriage but it just doesnt feel real.

Thank you so much to the family of Baby Harrison. Your donated bear has given me a beautiful memory of our Little One and I pray you find comfort in knowing that you have helped in the process of our grieving.
Maybe Baby Harrison will be looking after our Little One. Thank you.

Comments: Hi Bears of Hope team,

I am so grateful that I was admitted into the most amazing public hospital and we received so much support. Our social worker gave us a Bears of Hope package while I was in recovery from the operation and I was so touched. I held my little teddy and cried and cried. The frame was so special. The seeds to plant and all the information has helped us begin to heal. I felt so connected to all Women and couples who have been through this devastation. We have been so grateful.

Bubba G was our first baby and will always be in my heart. Always and every day since the termination I think of him and tell him that I love him. My partner and I will start to try again for a baby late this year/early next year. I know that it will be hard and I will feel afraid. In the end I choose love. I can't wait to be pregnant and then have little children filling up our home. We have so much love to give.

Thank you for giving us hope and comfort xx
