Aeron’s 5th Birthday Invitation
This month is a milestone birthday for Aeron—he’s turning 5 years old! We imagine if he were still here, he’d let us know a party theme, which friends to invite, and a toy or two he’s hoping to get.
Though Aeron is not with us physically, we’re excited to celebrate him in our own way this year!
Since Aeron’s death, we’ve dreamt about publishing a book with the hopes of helping young children process the death of a loved one. This difficult conversation was challenging to have with our daughter Aeris so we hope this book can support families who need it. We also like the idea of having a book as a cherished keepsake for anyone who knows and loves Aeron.
We’re excited to announce that “Aeron in the Sky” is very close to getting published! Here’s a preview of the beautiful illustration you’ll see in the book (created by our very talented friend Grace):
Please join us and make a gift so we can share Aeron’s story to help families heal across the country! Our goal is to raise $5,500 which covers printing 250 books, copyright fees, and other related costs. All contributors to the book will be thanked on our website, and gifts over $100 will be acknowledged in the book as well! Donations raised beyond the goal will support other Aeron’s Foundation initiatives such as sleep sacks and financial assistance for families.
We have so much to be proud of heading into Aeron’s 5th birthday. Thank you for your continued support and we can’t wait to share the book with you all soon!
