WHO WE ARE
After getting to know each other during our very first book project. Dr. Sue and Brenda became lifelong friends. Learning that there was a deeper connection in the bonding that occurs when being also parents of loss.
It has been several years since our children passed, but there has always been a deep seated feeling of give back to our children. You see, the experience of loss of our children has caused us to want to be better people. As we both are in the health and healing arts, our mission is to help people. As authors, we want to get the stories out. To help people give voice to these children, and share the stories, of life, loss, grief, and give back to help other parents of loss. The legacy that each of these children leave on our hearts has lead to some amazing gifts.

So many parents hold their children as secret, and feel compelled to put away the lives of these precious beings as memories, but the truth is that their impact is as real if not larger now, than when they were alive. The impact of these children colour and shape our lives in ways that make us better. We want to be better for them, but also for us and those around us! The gifts and lessons of their lives can make the world a better place. It is our feeling that this series will be as healing for he readers as it is for the writers. Together let's celebrate each life and the gift of life.
