Loss of Sister to AFE Inspires Childrens Book

May 31, 2013 | Books on AFE

The Wonderful Gift is a children’s book written by Quinea Postel, who lost her sister to complications from an amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) in January 2003. The book is a tribute to two beautiful ladies in her life- Lisa the sister she suddenly lost and the niece she gained in that instant. Concerned of the day she would have to explain to her niece that her birthday was also the very day of her mother’s death, Quinea set out to tell a story that would help her through that challenging moment. The book introduces a character named Penelope, an angel who walked among us, whose life’s purpose was to deliver “the gift” of a child. It is a faith-based book for children of all ages and can help foster a conversation about the loss of a mother and the birth of a child.
The book and accompanying CD are sold for $17.95. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the AFE Foundation.
