A story for young womb twin survivors, to be read together with a parent or carer. Two little birds, Birdie and Beaky, hatch out of the same egg but only Birdie is strong enough to fly. Beaky is too weak to remain with Birdie and soon disappears into a field of flowers, leaving Birdie alone. Through the medium of a single white feather, which once belonged to Beaky, Birdie is able gradually to come to terms with the loss. Complete with 14 simple, richly-coloured illustrations. Additional notes included for parents and carers, to assist them in speaking openly to a young womb twin survivor about their missing twin. Written by Althea Hayton, who is a womb twin survivor, counsellor and published author. She is founder and Chairman of Womb Twin, which is a non-profit company dedicated to helping womb twin survivors around the world. Illustrated by RaRa Schlitt, who is a spiritual folk artist, living and working in Tennessee, USA. In her work as a physical therapist she often comes across womb twin survivors. She is a published author of several children's books.
