[p]Our son, Leo Phoenix, was born sleeping on 17.01.16 at 37 weeks. His death was devastating, yet his short life has bought so much joy into our life's.[/p][p]We were introduced to the charity Aching Arms, who offer comfort Bears donated in the name of another baby. Since we received our Nora bear, and seen the comfort this provides first hand we have volunteered for the charity. Bears are now given to bereaved parents at our local hospital when they learn of their loss, as a small sign of telling them they are not alone. [/p][p]In October 2016, we are taking part in their Miles in Memory event and plan to walk, run, cycle or swim 310 miles to represent the 310 babies who will (statistically) be stillborn through the month of October.[/p][p]We are hoping to dedicate each mile to a baby gone too soon - whatever age or reason - and hope to raise vital awareness during Baby Loss Awareness Month.[/p][p]£10 pays for one family to receive a bear dedicated in the name of another baby gone too soon. Please consider supporting this event and the charity during this crucial time for Baby Loss Awareness.[/p][p]Thank you for your support. Feel free to find us on Facebook or Instagram to follow the event - @thelegacyofleo [/p][p][/p][p][/p]
