Book You are not alone
28th April 2010 we launched our first book “You are not alone” A compilation of over 40 shared stories from Australian families who have experienced the loss of their baby’s.
“This book will no doubt touch you incredibly and give you such an insight into the grief of losing a precious baby or babies”
Trudi Penrose-Starr Co Founder
"You are not alone" will reach out and connect with other bereaved families and let them know they are not quite so alone. It is a book that will bring greater awareness to the wider community of the significance and impact the loss of a baby has on parents, families and friends.

The book costs $22.00 + postage.

THANK YOU Trudi for these words as i now know that i am not the only people who feels this way.

Amber Jordan What a wonderful book, I read the whole thing in one day...just couldn't put it down. It breaks my heart that so many people have been and are going through such losses, but it truly does help knowing you are not alone. Thankyou for sharing your stories everyone.
Tracey Astill I feel like I cried a river of tears and I went through a whole box of tissues, but there were smiles in there too :o) I just finished reading and I am so happy that my babies story is no longer 'alone'. Thank you, thank you, thank you - it is a wonderful book.
Alicia Hickey Just wanted to stop by to say i have finished reading the book "you are not alone", i found it so helpful but yet so upsetting. I could not put the book down and had endless tears. You have all done such a good job with it and i am certain it will serve its purpose. With no words to explain it TLC you have helped me re...ach the point i am at today and will forever be grateful.
