My deepest condolences to the family that have gifted us an amazing helpful Bears of Hope bag. We are so very thankful that in our time of need we received this gesture, and in time can bring ourselves to do the same for a family in honour of our beloved Aurora

We were given a bear after the birth of our son.
Comments

Our son, Quintin Eli, was born on 03.02.21 at 14+3 weeks.
My waters broke and nothing could be done to save him. We got to hold him for a few hours which I am thankful for.
A nurse at the hospital gave us this bear named Sophie. Receiving this bear meant so much to me. It made me feel like I wasn’t alone and reminded me that others have felt this pain and have passed on their strength, one mum to another.
I will be donating a bear of hope to another mum in need of comfort when nothing feels like it will ever be the same again.

Thank you Lisa. Its actually a really precious thing for our three children to see their baby brother being honoured and remembered in different ways, by people outside of our family. Helpful and healing. Thank you.

from the hospital who gave us our Bear of Hope pack
Comments

Thank you to the family of Hunter Thompson whose donated bear we received from Bendigo Hospital when our precious son Hugh Thomas was born sleeping in January 2020. This little bear has brought me so much comfort and I loved that our son’s names were so similar – we also always loved the name Hunter for a son. Please know Hunter’s memory lives on in our family alongside our Hugh’s. xx
