One bear was given to our angel bub Leo, who was stillborn at 25 weeks and stayed with him to give him comfort.
My husband and I received another to give us comfort, tagged in honour of Flora who passed in 2021 and it is so sweet. All we need to do is look at this bear to find comfort and know our Leo isn’t far. We look forward to giving this bear to our hopeful future child.
Thank you to the Bears of Hope team and to Flora’s parents for your generosity and kindness.
May our Leo and your Flora be playing, high in the sky over that rainbow.

Our Bear of Hopes gift bag was gifted to us in hospital with a beautiful bear tagged in honour of Michael Francis O’Connor born in 2017.
We decided the bear would stay with our angel bub, Leo, stillborn at 25 weeks on 3/6/22 to keep him comfort.
It was the most heartwarming thing to receive.
On behalf of my husband and I, thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Michael’s parents for donating the gift bag and to the Bear of Hopes team.
May our angel bubs play together, somewhere high in the sky over that rainbow.

Thank you so much for your thoughtful gift. I’m sorry for your loss. I was gifted this bear because I had a missed miscarriage in May. This was my first pregnancy and I never thought I could love a baby so much, who was still so young and small and who I only knew for a few short weeks. I never had any symptoms of miscarriage or reason to suspect something was wrong. I had my first ultrasound at 8 weeks and it showed my baby to be only the size of 6 weeks and with no heartbeat. We waited two more weeks in case the dates had been wrong but unfortunately the next ultrasound showed that this was not the case. I don’t know what your circumstances were but I know that whatever the case it must have been the saddest time in your life. I hope that you were able to heal, and I hope that I can heal too. Our babies will be forever in our hearts.
