Still So Much

But there was still SO MUCH
you had to do…

So many dreams
you had to catch, 
sunsets to see,
candles to wish upon
& belly laughs until 
you can’t breathe…

You’re ‘to do’
will never end
~ along with the hundreds
of souls that carry
a tiny piece of gold
within their blessed hearts
all because of you…

International Bereaved Mother’s Day ~ High Tea 2017

Once again Soul Stories is more than happy to be a tiny part of this wonderful event ~ International Bereaved Mother’s Day High Tea. If l can help out in anyway regarding any kind of ‘loss’ or stories around ‘mum’s’, then l will be one of the first to raise my hand.

Please take a moment to read a little more about Karen Jeffersons special day coming up. l’m extremely inspired by wonderful souls who have dedicated their lives to helping others live their life through/with grief… Much love, t x

“The loss of a baby is rarely discussed, yet many people are touched by the tragedy of infant death. Every year.  One in four pregnancies end in a loss. With the  daily safe arrival of babies, being cradled in their parents arms, there will be six babies each day born perfect yet still, across Australia). Not to mention the consideration that an end of pregnancy happens each 15 minute in this country and are reported at over 3000+ per year.

As part of the support and being a member of this community, I am planing  this years Bereaved Mothers Day High Tea.  This event is for mothers who have lost babies to come together and celebrate mother’s day by supporting each other, sharing their stories and celebrating the fact that they are mothers despite not having their children with them.

It will be held in at the Quaterdeck Kitchen and Bar. There will be lucky door, raffle draws and a major prize draw on the day. Would you be in a position again this year to offer a voucher or product for the special bereaved Mum’s gift table?

I look forward to hearing from you and welcome your confirmation of support and further questions, regarding this event and the supports offered here in SE Queensland, when a pregnancy ends and or a baby(s) die. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I would love to hear from you. Warm wishes Karen Jefferson – The Grief Practitioner”

Peaceful World

Imagine the possibilities
if every time we lost
a loved one ~ we asked ourselves

’what can I do to make the world

a happier place for someone else?’
No, it doesn’t bring them back
or speed up our heartache,
but life for another
would be slightly better
than the day that they left…

Little Lionhearts Cocktail Fundraiser 2015

MLittle Lionhearts Fundraisery lovely friend Selena Wool (founder of ‘Little Lionhearts’ ) reached out to ask if l could donate a few Soul Stories creations to be part of her special fundraiser coming up. Which of course I agreed and started packing them up immediately.
This wonderful lady inspires me greatly, all who she is and what she does. So if Soul Stories can support her in any shape or form, l will be there, 100% of the way.

Little Lionhearts was born after the loss of Ashley James Heath Wool, a little boy who put up an almighty fight for life.

Selena hopes that overtime, ‘Little Lionhearts’ will be able to continue to support the pregnancy loss/bereaved community through various projects and fundraisers. 
Her beautiful organisation especially fundraises to provide Cuddle Cots to hospitals. These vital pieces of hospital equipment allow families to spend precious time, creating memories, with their child. The Cuddle Cot is used to cool deceased neonatals allowing the family time to be close with their baby whilst the baby is kept cool. It is small, and quiet and is placed discreetly in a bassinet.

Little Lionhearts Fundraiser

They aim to raise valuable funds during their fundraiser cocktail party to complete their Cuddle Cot for Pregnancy Loss Australia. Please share/feel free to invite friends and family as it will be a wonderful evening!
