Butterflies Released


Welcome to my website and thank you for taking the time to visit this page. I am a new writer and ‘Sebby’ is my first book, but my prayer is this will be the first of many books. I am already working on a devotional book entitled ‘Hope Restored’ to encourage people to process grief in a healthy way.  The best way to sample my personal writing style is to visit the blog: www.butterfliesreleased.com  which covers a wide variety of topics relating to loss, grief and trauma, and learning from these experiences with the help of a relationship with our loving heavenly Father. You can contact me by writing comments on my blog or Facebook page, or by sending me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hannah Celine 


This unique book will speak to anyone who has struggled with abuse, loss or grief. Hannah has been through a lot: coming from a dysfunctional background, enduring an abusive marriage and losing three children to miscarriage and stillbirth. How do you come to terms with all that? Read the book and find out. It is a story of restoration, redemption and emotional healing in the face of overwhelming odds.  Sebby is the gut-wrenching yet heart-warming story of one woman’s journey through a quagmire of disintegrating life and emotions. She made it through by the grace of God and the help of a few good friends and family. It is an outstanding and beautiful story, both practical and inspirational.

‘As I began to read your work I slowly started to feel like I wasn’t in a dark place anymore. I began to see everything I was feeling was normal and I wasn’t losing my mind. I feel God is protecting and looking after my lost child as he was needed there. It was like I could share my grief and was being heard by someone. Your book came from your heart and life and I admire you greatly for this. You have found your way and I’m sure many others will find their way with the help from your wonderful book.’ Mandy Mcdonagh, England

‘I felt overwhelmed by the things you shared. The struggles, pains, difficulties, losses I have had in life so far weren’t as severe as yours by any stretch. Mine seemed miserably small in the light of yours. You described God, God’s attributes, God’s compassion, God’s ability to comfort the way I never heard or experienced. There was power and truth in the words you said. Sometimes I hear the same words you said from the pulpit but with no substance and with no reverence.  I especially remember you saying that people’s ability to comfort is OK, but it is nothing like God’s and that God is always in control.  Please carry on telling people what He has done for you.’   Chris Kures Kurcik, Slovakia 


Hannah C Fairchild is a poet and writer who was born in Belgium but has travelled extensively and lived in various countries, most recently Slovakia and Germany. She is multilingual and has a BSc Honours degree in Psychology from the University of Wales. She lost three children to miscarriage and stillbirth, which is the subject of ‘Sebby’. Her Christian faith shines through these pages. She is currently training to be a grief counsellor, so that she can better help women come to terms with issues relating to abuse, abandonment, grief and despair.  Hannah speaks internationally to different groups, sharing her faith and her inspiring story.

I will give thanks to you Lord with all my heart, I will tell of all your wonderful deeds. Psalm 9.1 


Hannah is currently studying to become a Christian counsellor and  working on her second book  ‘Hope Restored (100 Days Through Grief Devotional)‘.  The book is an inspirational yet practical  take on how to overcome grief.  Of course it takes longer than one hundred days, but the purpose is to be an encouragement to anyone who has found themselves stuck in a grief journey. 

Sebby, Son of Hope has been successful to date, with much positive feedback and  the first printing almost sold out.  A reprint is planned towards the end of this year!

Hannah has had the privilege of sharing her testimony in a variety of settings (prisons, women’s groups, home groups and church communities) where many are touched by her story of hope in the context of the trials of life.  

Hannah is available to share her testimony, or to conduct a Grief Seminar in your fellowship. Full details on request.
