The Adventures of T-bird the Tiny Titan is a short, fictionalized biography that celebrates the life of fearless, feisty, and joyful Thea Kathleen Roelofsen. It was originally written by Thea’s school principal, Dr. Liana Appelt, as the eulogy at her Celebration of Life to help children and parents, friends and family make sense of how a vibrant young member of their community could be taken away. Dr. Appelt provided an experience that soothed her grieving community, provide a gift to the Roelofsen family, and allow all who heard her words to comprehend Thea’s passing in a new way.
After a cascade of requests, Dr. Appelt and the Roelofsens decided to publish Thea’s eulogy, so that others who have felt the impact of a cancer diagnosis could read and experience the story as a healing tool. Adults say the story has a magical ability to give “wings to their heavy sadness and despair.” Children learn about the concept of dying in a way that turns fear and confusion into compassionate action.
We hope this book will inspire one and all to live with love, courage, strength, and positivity during impossible circumstances, while providing an ongoing memorial to a young girl whose light and life touched so many.
