Sally & Simon’s first child and daughter, Hope Angel Heppleston, was stillborn on 19th August 2008 at 40 weeks and five days after a robustly healthy pregnancy. Every day in August 2012, four years after her tragic passing, talented Melbourne-based artist Tonia Composto created an illustration based on a popular fairy tale in her honour, because reading fairy tales was one of the many simple pleasures in life that Hope was denied.
Think about that for a second.
A limited number of these gorgeous prints are available for AUD$20 each with all proceeds donated directly to the Stillbirth Foundation Australia. ALL PROCEEDS!
Sally, thanks for sharing these with us – they are beautiful and I can’t wait to get my hands on a few of them. Every time I look at them, I will remember Hope. I’m so sorry for your loss. She won’t be forgotten. Not ever.
