Words can not express the gratitude it was to receive our Brody bear. Our Angel grew his wings 2/3/13. Our Brody Bear also shared the same middle name as our Braxtyn James. 7 years on he is a very treasured memory.

Sending so much love from a mother to another parent. This small kind gesture somewhat brings me comfort knowing that there are other parents who understands the pain of losing a child. I hope I can return the favor one day. Xx

After trying for many years to start a family, we were finally blessed with a reason to celebrate, only to have that long awaited miracle taken away again just 18 weeks into the pregnancy. Enduring such a loss has been made slightly more bearable through knowing we aren’t alone and the comfort our bear, Sophie, has unexpectedly provided. Thank you, and our sympathies to all those other parents experiencing their own losses.

Thank you so much for this bear. My partner and I lost our son, Aksel, the day we discovered he was a boy. Receiving this bear has helped myself and my partner feel less alone in this journey. I hope your sweet Dallas is resting peacefully, alongside our darling Aksel. x

A bears of hope package was given to us
Comments

This package meant so much to us in our huge time of grief when we lost our little baby Sammy-joe. She came 3 months early and we were travelling along way from home. We cuddled that bear for months and the contents of that package were so helpful to our process.

I just by chance found the tag from that bear the other day and saw it had the baby’s date as 09/02/15, which is this weekend! We really wanted to let baby Carsons family know that we will be thinking of them this full moon Sunday the 9th) and how much we appreciate that bear of hope.

Connected by grief and with tears in my eyes I wish you hope for the future x

I received 2 Bears of Hope after the passing of my twin boys
Comments

On the 29th of January 2020 my husband I were told our twin boys Bailey and Morgan had tragically passed away. We received a beautiful package from Bears of Hope. The tags were in made in honour of JESSE BUTTONS and WIDGIE MARCH.

These bears have made a massive impact on our hearts. We sincerely appreciate the sentiment. Although we are heartbroken for these families but we admire the strength and hope that these bears bring.
Thank you!
