Planting a seed to grow a glowing resource
To be seen
To be heard
For emotions to be conferred
To feel like you aren’t alone
Navigating the unknown
Finding words of another
An empowering way to discover
A circle of support and care
Challenges become lighter to bear
Energy left for healing
Instead of despair
A home for enlightening infinite possibility
Along the trail of gathering feedback for Pete the Peanut and his mates, I came across Tabitha J Page.
When we seek, we find – right?
We shared an email and then a laugh over a Zoom call as I drilled for advice on releasing medical type books for kids.
Tabitha has authored five children’s books. Four of which feature characters with a long-term illness or disability — another one on the way!
By the end of the conversation, she told me about a project she had been thinking of.
Before the sun had set that day, she had a logo, a promo vid and a skeleton of a website in place!
Tabitha- well, she is a woman of action!
A week later and she has launched the site.
What is Forevability about? Well, the words directly from Tabitha’s mouth explain it best.
Created by children’s author and disability advocate Tabitha Page, Forevabilty aims to make it easy to find books, podcasts and more which focus on disability, illness and other specialized subjects. We hope to inspire, empower, teach and support.
Honoured to have a tiny hand in to help it on its way.
Amazing where a “quick chat” can lead!
AND…added to which, Forevability is excited to announce its first-ever Book Awards.
The list of judges and prizes is nothing short of amazing.
