Twenty-three years after her son Nathans stillbirth, Cindy Claussen was filled with a need to write this story of hope and healing.
Designed with soft colors and simple illustrations, the pages of Born to Fly: An Infants Journey God, contain Nathans conversation with God as he hears his fathers strong voice and experiences the sensation of his Mothers warm touch for the first time. “I will kick her so she knows I love her too,” Nathan tells God. When Nathan shares with God that he is not feeling well and is growing weary, God wipes His eyes and tells the child that soon he will fly. “I will fly? Will my mother fly with me?” Nathan asks. “Someday,” God assures him. The simplicity of the story is what makes it so powerful.
Born to Fly is indeed a little treasure that is sure to leave its delicate imprint on your heart.
