Our baby girl Debbie-May Jennifer Drayton was stillborn due to a rare condition Trisomy 18. She was the most beautiful girl in the world. It is hard finding comfort at times while dealing with this grief. We received a bears of hope hope pack with some great help and lovely gifts to help remember our girl. As her mother still being a Smith for now, it was most comforting to receive a bear in honour of another baby with Smith in her name. I believe j got this bag for a reason. I just know our baby girls have met and become the best of friends up in heaven and are working together to watch over both families. Baby girl Flora Joyce Dyson-Smith, and baby girl Debbie-May Jennifer Drayton, fly high together, find comfort in each other until the mummies and daddies that love you so much come up one day to meet you again.

We’ve never known anyone who has lost a baby, so when our son Finley was stillborn at 35 weeks on 22/2/22 it was a great comfort to receive our bear in honour of Robert. It was like getting a hug from his family, people who understood our pain. We carry Robert as we carry Finley.

When we first saw the bear and bag in the room, we weren’t sure if we were going to take it home in the fog of trauma of losing our son Harry McLennan on February 10, 2022. However, the bear has been the beacon of encouragement in dealing with our grief and honouring Harry. I tracked down the bear donor whose advice and support has been incredible in helping me gain perspective, learning to go gently and riding the waves of grief. Someone I’ll be forever grateful for. The bear was also special support on the day Harry was cremated, the bear sat in front of a candle in our son’s honour. A counsellor at Bears of Hope has also given me vital information on returning to work which I’ve passed on to my workplace, which has been hugely helpful. So who knew, a beautiful little bear, could make a world of difference in helping to soften the worst depth of pain a parent can ever know. Thank you Bears of Hope.

We received Chloe’s bear after the premature still birth of our daughter.
We can’t tell you what it meant to us in those dark days.
We have now donated bears in memory of our daughter.
We wish you nothing but love.

To the family of Huxley Mark Bennett, thank you so much for the comfort this little teddy bear brought me during such a hard time. I will always treasure it and the memory it represents. The bear sits pride of place in our spare room and I hope that one day soon it will be surrounded by toys in a babies room.
Sending you love. Xx
