We were gifted our bear and other items from Bears of Hope whilst in hospital after losing our baby at 36 weeks. It was a situation we never imagined having to deal with, and we were trying to cope with indescribable shock and grief, but receiving the bear let us know we were not alone. My partner Brenton and I want to send our love to baby Hudson's family and will be donating a bear in honour of our own beautiful daughter.

I was admitted to hospital on Saturday 2nd April 2022 at 19 weeks into a twin pregnancy. My waters broke that night and our beautiful daughter Olive had to be delivered, arriving at 2:43pm on Monday 4th April 2020. At 19weeks 4 days old, she was so beautiful and precious. Before she arrived, we were warned that she may not be alive or that she’d only have minutes to live, but she blessed us for 12 very special hours. The following day I was given a Bear of Hope dedicated to Jakoah Pilapil 11/11/21. It was such a comfort to hold Jakoah’s bear in the spot where I’d cuddled Olive just the night before.

I held tight onto that bear as we hoped and prayed that our other baby, Hazel, would keep going for another few weeks until she would be big enough to make it to the NICU. We swung so many times between hope and despair that week as I was bed bound and underwent various tests and scans. Sadly, it was not meant to be and our darling sweet daughter Baby Hazel was stillborn, joining her older little sister in heaven on Friday 8th April 2022, aged 20weeks 1 day. We received another bear donated on behalf of Harry Michael Collins 21/7/17.

It was heartbreaking to come home without our two precious babies, but we are very thankful to Bears of Hope. We keep our two bears next to us in bed and think of our special and loved girls. Unfortunately, there are too many people who know the pain of losing their beloved little ones but it comforted us to know that there is so much love and support for parents going through the most difficult time of their lives.

To Kaden's family.
We received the bear in memory of your son, when we lost our own baby yesterday, the second loss in a row for us. Receiving the bear meant so much to us. We spoke your son's name and remembered him in your honour. Thank you for your kind donation and support.

To say we are devastated is an understatement. My daughter has received a bear of hope and to our surprise she shares the same surname as the family who have donated her bear.

I am so thankful to the person / family who donated this 'Bear of Hope' in honour of another special babe, Hugo Michael Hay. This made me feel a little less alone in a very isolating time. I too will go on to donate in honour of my 'Arlo', wishing to give another what you gave to me – a sense of connection and a ray of hope. Here's to Hugo Michael Hay and Family, Arlo Nica Robertson and every other Angel Baby. Forever in our hearts. 💕

Thanks so much for this bear. We received it on 25th July 2021 when we lost our little girl. It inspired my husband to do a 100km run to raise money for bears of Hope! And he carry’s on raising awareness of miscarriage and baby loss. Thanks for giving me something to cuddle when I needed it most x
