Farfal la A Story of Loss and Hope
with Story by Vanita Oelschlager and Artwork by Kristin Blackwood
Little Beetle crawls closer to the group of caterpillars for a better look. The mother busies herself in a puddle of mud.
The butterflies dance around the garden and fly up and away until they have all flown off.
Day after day the little beetle waits . . .
A Story of Loss and Hope byVanita
Art by Kristin
Farfalla is a simple story with profound signiďŹ cance. It begins as a fable on friendship, but becomes a story of expectation, loss and hope. It will speak especially to families who have experienced pregnancy loss, and the hope it provides is both comforting and uplifting. I wish Farfalla had been a resource when my own family experienced a stillbirth and a miscarriage. Dr. Michael Olin-Hitt, Ph.D Professor of English at the University of Mount Union $8.95
