“A Corner of Heaven is a beautiful way to begin discussions about the loss of a baby with the baby's siblings.” — Gina Harris, MNM, Chief Executive Officer, Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep
Kailen Offutt was just four years old when her baby brother, Kulen, was born sleeping and never made it home to join his three big sisters.
A Corner of Heaven shares a family’s journey through expectation and joy, to heartbreak and loss, and back to hope and happiness.
Illustrated by Kailen at age nine, A Corner of Heaven is a comforting gift for grieving families, providing a resource for parents to help their young children understand, discuss, and process the loss of their long-awaited sibling.
Grandparents, godparents, aunts and uncles, and family friends will find A Corner of Heaven to be the perfect way to express their sympathy and support at a time when mere words seem to fail.
