My name is Joanna Fox, and my aim was to develop a children's book designed to explain still births to young children as well as raise awareness of sleeping babies. I would like to make this book available to every family within the UK. Children are much brighter and more aware of what is going on than we give them credit.
As of July 2018, we have raised over £3000 and we are in the process of trying to become a registered charity.
My son Alfie was born forever sleeping 22nd July 2017. My husband and I had the most difficult task of explaining to our 4 and 2-year-old why they couldn’t see or hold Alfie. This was where the idea for my book started. The story talks about a playground in the sky. A simple yet effective way of explaining such a tragic event.
