I got this from my granddad. I have always supported adoption and I have always told people that there are so many kids who need to be adopted. My best friend Shaylyn was adopted and you can't find a nicer girl anywhere.

A Keepsake Bear
Our "newly adopted" children recieved the bear for a "keepsake" from their Case Worker. When we see the bear it will remind us of this wonderful day.

Every kid needs a bear like this.
Our 5 month old grandson loves his bear so much. He talks to it. He needs another one so he is not without it when it needs to be washed.

Heartwarming says it all!
This was a wonderful surprise from my husband. We are currently going through an international adoption. It is so soft, cuddly and has amazing meaning behind the bear. A must for adoption families.

Best Baby Bear
My mother-in-law bought this for my son when he was about 5mo old. He has slept with it daily for the last few months but he sucks on it's nose. Needless to say it smells pretty bad. I needed a back up for when this bear is in the wash or when it finally gives out, so I just ordered five more. It's great for a 1st time bear, small hands to hold onto, and to cuddle with.

Family Bear
So happy you have brought back the Being Family Bears. I have been trying to order them for months, and I am so thrilled they are back in stock. I have many families I know that do foster care and then adopt. This adorable little bear is a sweet way of welcoming the child into their forever family.

My 2yr old's Favorite toy!
This Bear was bought by Grandparents one shopping trip and my 2 year old daughter LOVES him! He has become the go to bear for bedtime and play time. We left him at a friends house and my daughter didn't stop asking about him until we got him back. I washed him once in a lingerie bag and he was just fine. I also love this bear because you get to help adoptive families. I will be purchasing at least 3 more to keep at families houses just in case we forget him somewhere again!

My dog LOVES this bear! She holds it in her paws and nurses on it. I bought a dozen, because i never want her to run out!
Nancy M on Jun 23, 2016
This is my son's favorite bear, we got it in a Jockey store. One bear is purchased for my cousin who is adopting a son in due in September. The other is for a friend who lost custody of the baby she tried to adopt. The child, now 5, has been in the foster system since she was taken back by the birth mom at 10 months when the birth father was confirmed. My friend gave birth last September, this is a 1st birthday present for her baby. She still prays for a forever home for the child of her heart.

My son is almost 5 years old, and he's had this teddy bear by his side since birth. One of my best friends gave it to him as a gift. We were on vacation and he left it at a hotel. Needless to say he was devastated. :( So were we. That teddy has been part of our family for five years. So ... we are ordering him another. He WILL know that it's not his original best friend TEDDY, but it's better than not having one altogether. This is a super soft bear and he loves it.

My grandson loves this bear and his has become quite tattered so one is to replace his and the others are for his new sibling.
Dianne D on May 6, 2015
I bought it originally for the charity connection but my Grandchildren loved it. My 4 year old Granddaughter won't go to sleep without her cuddlie with her. I bought two more just in case she forgets her bear at home on sleep-overs or if one of them gets too old to repair.
Rick T on Apr 4, 2015
My son has a bear like this from 2.5 years ago. He sleeps with it all the time. I want to have a couple just in case the original one doesn't survive another year.

how do i name the bear online?
Sandy N on Dec 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is an adopt-a-bear. I would suggest you let the child who receives the bear to name it (Or a relative/ guardian.). Our oldest daughter is adopted. She and her husband have 3 adopted children.
