We are pleased to announce that Vol 1. launched in two stages. April 1, 2022 we started with the paperback version of the book as we felt that it would be a nice start to actually hold a book as we no longer can hold our children. We launched the ebook version on June 1, and we were able to celebrate that we hit #1 in5 categories on Amazon. We are expanding reach of our book through Ingram Spark, Lulu, Smashwords and other online and retail book sellers.

This first volume is the flagship for the series that is groundbreaking. It is a labour of love to bring this project forward. Our children, although no longer present on this plane, is still with us. In our hearts, and minds and not a single day goes by without some reminder, or thought. Our lives are never the same, and yet life goes on. Breath by breath, step by step, day by day we move forward despite the pain. Yet day by day as the veil of pain lessens, the light of the legacy of these children becomes clearer and clearer.

Because of these children we become better people. Having a new realization and appreciation for life.

We, Dr. Sue and myself, Brenda, are both parents of loss and after several decades we still hold our precious children, Barbara and Kenny, deeply in our hearts, and it has been our soul mission to give legacy to these two precious children by bringing this project forward. For me personally, it is my personal joy to bring this book to light, and I know that those who join us in sharing their personal stories of their children and their journey join in the deep desire to give legacy and voice to them as well. The blessings of their lives will help others to grieve, and heal and feel that they are not alone on their journey. Paying it forward to humanity to appreciate the gifts of life of which we have been blessed.

To find out more about Vol 1, and the progress of that book, and to check out further books that will be in process simultaneously, please visit the projects tab. For anyone not included in the first book, you are invited to still submit towards further volumes.

Thank you for reading this and being inspired to share your story.
