Had trouble with this hand

One of my bigger losses in today's sessions, wonder if I could/should have done anything differently. Feedback welcome.

Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em $0.05/$0.10 - 9 players

CO: $6.96
Button: $11.02
SB: $9.95
BB: $10.00 (Hero)
UTG: $16.55

HJ: $10.00

SB is a 24/15 with a high steal percentage. When players like this steal, I usually call with many playable hands, and use my position to try and show down/win a small pot.

Preflop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with (9 players)
7 folds, SB raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.20

An ace qualifies to take a flop with position against a blind stealer.

Flop: ($0.60) (2 players)
SB bets $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, SB calls $0.80

No made hand but big draw. Nut flush and gutshot. I raise the flop but he calls...

Turn: ($3.00) (2 players)
SB bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40

...and then donks the turn. Once he does this, I don't think he's going to fold anymore. However, I still have a 12 out draw, and my ace might be good as well. Worth a half pot call...

River: ($5.80) (2 players)
SB bets $3, Hero folds

...whiff city. El-fold-o

SB won $5.42
(Rake: $0.38)

Only comment I have is that you had a HUGE amount of equity on the flop which you squandered by the turn / river. It's been awhile since I've played 10nl, but you could have perhaps raised larger on the flop and raised huge on the turn. You have huge equity still on the turn. Since he has a high stl att, I'm not putting him on AJ, meaning that your Ace is still a valid out. 16 outs is what you want! Force a fold.
