I just wanted to reach out and say a big thank you to baby Samperi’s family and Bears of Hope foundation. This has been the hardest time in our lives loosing our baby girl and on receiving the bear I felt an enormous wave of grief and strength from another stranger in the same situation. I wanted to reach out as the December date 12 months ago is here for them and I am sure their grief is close to their hearts. Want to let them know we’re thinking of them and giving the bear lots of cuddles and it is helping us through our dark moments. I hope the light from their little angel Samperi is guiding the family and that it follows them throughout life’s challenges xx

We lost our baby girl Isabelle, born still. Our first born, our cherished angel. The bear given to us in memory of Millie will forever be a memory of our Isabelle, something I get to hold and cuddle. It will never replace my beautiful girl, but it helps with the grief. We are very grateful for this gift.

Comments

We received a bear after the birth of our little Albie Jack Stephens.
Our 3 year old boy Ollie immediately bonded and found comfort with the Sadie Grace bear we were given in hospital.
Ollie sleeps with Sadie Grace and when she is misplaced we walk through our home looking for and her calling her name, ‘Sadie Grace, where are you?’
Ollie understands Sadie bear is named after a little baby like Albie, her name card sits with Albie’s ashes.

To Sadie’s parents, Sadie Grace bear is very loved in our home and we thank you for the comfort she has given us.

Thank you so much. Your loss became my gift. I don’t know what I would do without my ‘Harper’ bear xx
I’m so very sorry that Marci couldn’t stay with us, but I truly believe that our loss bubba’s are with each other. Somewhere. Somehow. Sending much love your way.

Our little Maddison bear gave us a reason to smile on our darkest day. It is a small comfort to know that others have gone through similar loss and sought to help others heal through the pain. We hope time has helped eased your burden, as it will ours one day too. As the memory of Maddison never fades from your hearts, we carry the memory of our Charlotte in a place of love for the life that could have been.

We were expecting to meet our baby daughter Evie Harper on 11th Oct 2023 via cesarean. After a routine 36 week check up she was beautiful and healthy on the monitor . 76 hours later we learnt the devastating news that she had passed . Our beautiful daughter was born sleeping on 29th September 2023 at 6:18am. My husband and my 2 year old son and our family were fortunate enough to spend 2 days with her. The heartbreak is indescribable.
We are so grateful to Renee and Marty for the bears of hope package , reminding us in this darkness and grief we are not alone and introducing us to this platform. The Sophie bear honouring Harlem sits cuddling our daughter , Evie Harper in her own teddy bear on Evie’s shelf.
We will be sure to pass it forward .

Love to you all xo
Hannah and Phillip
