Our darling Aurora Valerie Joyce was born sleeping on 20 December 2020 at 25 weeks and 6 days. A beautiful angel taken too soon. Upon leaving hospital we received a bear of hope donated in honour of Zoe Kramer, another beautiful angel taken too soon. Thank you Angel Zoe for providing us comfort and a beautiful soft bear to cuddle when we could no longer cuddle our baby girl. Forever grateful xxx

Receiving this little bear I had mixed emotions. I was happy because it was so cute, but I was sad to read the little babys name and think that another family had to go through what I have just recently gone through.
Lovely to know that we are supporting each other and are not alone.

We received our bear after an early miscarriage during lockdown that left us devastated during an already hard time. We received it from close friends who knew our pain ten-fold. In a delightful coincidence, the name Matilda-Rose spoke to both my friend and I for different reasons, and we knew this bear was meant to be.
To Matilda-Rose’s parents, thank you for donating this bear, who brings me to tears every time I touch it’s soft, soft fur – sometimes out of sadness, sometimes out of gratitude. I think of your little girl every time I see the bear, nestled on my desk. I hope you’re doing well. Thank you for sharing the love and reminding us that we’re not alone. xx

We had an ectopic pregnancy during our very long IVF journey. I received a bear from a friend and it meant so much that our loss was recognised. Although it was early. It was very hard as it was our first positive pregnancy in years and we were so excited. We went on to have a beautiful boy, Matthew. He was the 11th embryo and is a gift.

We received our bear after the loss of our third pregnancy back in 2018. We didnt receive anything after the loss of our twins the previous year and thought the bear and its bag was a beautiful gesture. Our bear and the frame sit on the shelf as momentos to our lost little one. Sorry for the delay in posting this I only just found this. Such a beautiful gesture and thankyou.

There was a great level of comfort in receiving the bear it was both simultaneously heartbreaking and warming for myself and my partner. What a beautiful way of letting grieving parents know they’re not in it alone.

A million times thanks you. From one angel baby family to another.

Sophie’s bear sits with out sons ashes… I find comfort that I hope he has found her and they are together. Our son’s name is Vernon Todd Osborne who was born sleeping at 20+5 on the 2nd October 2020 due to a cord accident. He was our first son how is dearly missed.

Thank you so much to Tom’s parents and Bears of Hope.

We lost our baby boy Henry at 12.5 weeks due to a diagnosis of Anencephaly. Our hearts were absolutely torn to shreds.

I had to have emergency surgery due to bleeding, when I came back to my room, my husband gave me the bear and I cuddled him and cried. It was so bitter sweet to know that someone has gone through what we have and have made the kind gesture of donating this bear to us.

You made a difference in a very difficult time. Thank you.
