Bears of Hope Drive

My 30th birthday is looming. On September 15th. I dont feel 30.
30 year olds are GROWN UPS. I still think passing wind is funny. Sorry about that.

Anyway, this year, the only thing I want is Sybella to be alive. Of course, that is not a gift that I will get. But there is nothing else I want, materially.

So, what I am asking my friends and family for, is to make a (tax deductible) donation to Bears of Hope in honour of Sybella. For every $25 raised, Bears of Hope will donate a teddy bear to a family that has been touched by miscarriage, stillbirth or neo-natal death. I have set up a fundraising drive at this web address:

All donations, big or small, are deeply appreciated. Feel free to visit the page, have a look, donate if you wish, and read about Bears of Hope and the wonderful work they do.

  1. Steph, I'm donating to this wonderful cause. In memory of your gorgeous daughter, in honour of your amazing strength and spirit, and to wish you a very happy birthday as you deserve it!

    I have a four month old daughter Kara who was born on the 16th of April, and even though first time motherhood has been a struggle for me, reading your blog has made me appreciate every little thing in life, every breath of fresh air, all the sounds of the birds and when i see butterflies i think of your darling Sybella and smile knowing that she is still there, in spirit, for you and your family.

    I wish you all the best.
