We lost our baby at 11w3d. It’s been such a shock as it felt like everything was going so well and we were getting ready to tell the world. My husband and I have been trying for so long and it’s just so hard to accept it’s gone. When I received our bear and saw the name my heart quivered and I became so emotional. Darcy was our preferred name if we too had a boy. I’m not religious, but if there is another life, I hope these boys find each other and become best of friends.

To the parents of Tobias Alexander Yang
Thank you so much for passing forward your love and letting us know we are not alone. Our baby Sage has two uncles named Alex and so we thought (but had not decided) we would give him the middle name Alexander.
Unfortunately our little boy was a stillbirth which led to us recieiving our bear of hope in honour of your little boy. After we had both read the tag we knew for certain what our babies middle name was meant to be and we named him Sage Alexander Dempsey.
We hope message finds you.
Love, Ellen and Aiden

We would like to thank the family of Ollie James Lee Anderson for donating the bear we received and send you our condolences for we know the pain of losing a child is like no other. We received the bear after our beautiful daughter Evangeline passed away 10 minutes after birth at only 17 weeks. She was born on 23.8.23 at 10:35 pm, weighing only 160g and 20cm long. Your son has now become a part of our daughter’s story and we will hold him in our thoughts when we remember her. I’m sure they are both looking down at us from heaven and one day we will be with them again.

We recently lost our boy John at 22 weeks. The hospital were so kind. We have two older children (currently 6 and 3 years old). The hospital gave us two bears – Hudson’s and Lucas’ bears – to take home to them. These two ‘John-bears’ have been so helpful for our kids as they come to terms with their brother not coming home. Thank you so much for your help. It’s such a hard time.

Little Harvey your life has blessed our family today with the gift of a little teddy bear with your name on it for the little one we lost. I pray your family takes comfort knowing your name is a precious part of our journey & your family is in our prayers. Little Harvey teddy was gifted to our daughter who is named Harper, she said ‘who is this from?’ I replied ‘a precious little one named Harvey’, Harper replied ‘Harvey just like Harper’ and gave Harvey Teddy a big cuddle with a huge smile.
