A children’s picture book for bereaved parents to read to their child who died, or didn’t survive a pregnancy. It’s filled with a parent’s wonder of who their child could have been if they’d had the chance to grow up. The book is written to the child, so a parent can talk to them about their lost hopes and dreams, but most importantly, their love.
“You could have been an astronaut, up among the stars
And you would have been a pioneer – the first to go to Mars” …
… “You could have lived much longer, but this was not to be
Not among the human world – instead you’re flying free” …
The watercolour illustrations are by artist, Zheng Qu, and beautifully depict the essence of our very special children who are no longer with us.
