The Birth of Little Birdie

Little Birdie’s journey began in August 2019 when the author couldn’t ignore the heart-wrenching news playing live clips of children crying. These children were scared, dirty, hungry, and traumatized after being separated from their parents at the US-Mexico border and placed into detention centers. One particular little girl’s cries for her “mama” struck a chord within the author. The overwhelming desire to comfort her and reunite her with her mother consumed their thoughts.

The Concept of Little Birdie

The concept of Little Birdie emerged as a way to turn “poison into medicine” – an ugly and terrible moment in time into something meaningful, a teachable life lesson. This character represents all beings who are not inherently evil but rather naive, afraid, and uninformed. Little Birdie thrives on fear and lack of understanding, which keeps him sheltered and disconnected from the world. Little Birdie symbolizes the potential within all of us to overcome our fears, grow, and find fulfillment.
