I Have a Baby Sister in Heaven

by Toni Tattis
Front Cover
Back Cover
A child's journey through the loss of their baby sibling can be filled with sadness, confusion, anger, and loneliness. It can also be filled with incredible love and gentle remembrance. This story acknowledges and honours the special connection a grieving, young girl continues to have with her sister who now lives in heaven.

"I Have a Baby Sister In Heaven' is a gentle, sensitive and beautifully illustrated book that confirms what we know to be true - people die but our relationships with them live forever. Despite her own grief, Toni generously and lovingly acknowledges the reality of her daughter's grief for her sister, and for all the other siblings who live in the heart of the family. The quality of parenting bereaved children receive is the best predictor for the child's later ability to live with hope and joy, despite the pain of loss. Toni's book clearly demonstrates the gift of compassionate parenting continually given to her surviving daughter. Hopefully, this book will encourage readers to facilitate the same kind of open conversations with children in the safety of their own family settings."
