My mum and dad gave us two little bears when Charlotte & Marianne were born. They were a wonderful help when the girls where in hospital as i used to cuddle them when I couldn't cuddle my girls.

They are now an amazing reminder as to just how small our girls were, since they are nearly the same size.

After the death of my daughters I had two bears made as memorials for them. I got a purple bear for Charlotte and a pink one for Marianne. They are wearing beautiful jumpers which have their names embroidered on the front and the dates of their birth and death on the back.

These beautiful bears were bought from They have a large range of really cute bears to choose from and you can get anything embroidered on the jumper. They have really great customer service and deliver anywhere in Australia within a couple of days.

I also bought a smaller version of the bear (with no jumper) from
