    Hello,

    Thank you for your message, but I'm not quite sure what you are asking us to do. The French translation offered for lose hope is perdre espoir, and the English example sentence (It's been three days, and I'm losing hope of ever finding my puppy again.) is correct. Of is the correct preposition to use with lose hope. You cannot use for or to with it.

    If there is something I have misunderstood in your message, please let me know.
