The Story of… a personalized book for your family

When Kate Polley first shared her gentle children’s book with the staff at Share, we were all touched by the simple but powerful words, tender sentiments, and soft illustrations accompanying the story written about her son, Sam. Kate wrote The Story of…Sam Polley as a way to share with Sam’s surviving twin, Finn, and their older siblings the many ways that their brother would always be a part of their lives. The book gently reminds those who are grieving that our loved ones can be found in the world around us, in the little moments of our everyday lives, and in the love that remains even after life ends.


As you can imagine, the message of Sam and Finn resonates with so many bereaved families, and Kate quickly realized that families suffering the loss of their child would deeply benefit from having a story as personalized to their loved one as Sam’s was to their family. And so The Story of… series was created. This book is now available to be personalized to your family, with your child’s name, as well as the illustrations within to reflect the characteristics of your

loved one. This book can become a truly personalized memento for your family to be cherished by parents and siblings, grandparents and friends.

Kate’s personalized The Story of…series, while originally designed to provide families with a keepsake after the loss of a baby, has expanded to address loss of all kinds. This series includes a version of the story for families who have lost more than one child, one or both twins, a parent, grandparent, or even a special person, such as an aunt, uncle or friend. It is a beautiful tool for parents to teach young children to seek the ways love can be found and fostered even after the life of our loved one ends. And truthfully, it is a powerful and needed message for adults, too, and would be a lovely gift for anyone who is grieving and in need of a gentle reminder of the love that surrounds us.
