The Healing Chickadee was created to help grieving children.

Sisters, Terry Murphy and Deb Clarke know what it means to be children in grief.  Born of their family's tragedy when they lost their brother, they've collaborated with experts to put this speical program together and into the hands and hearts of children.


While it has been over 50 years ago since that tragedy, grief has no timetable.   We began to think of things that would have been been helpful to us and our family as we struggled to find our way through the pain.


Drawing on this experience, we created The Healing Chickadee and Her Tweet-Hearts. The birds have been created to comfort your child during this difficult time. The content was approved by Dr. Suzanne Clerkin, who conducted studies on the neuroscience of grief.  While not a substitute for therapy, the bird characters, activities and stories are designed to aid in communication and bring families closer during tragedy.


This is something we hope no child ever needs, but if they do, it is our honor to provide it.
