East Liverpool woman turns personal tragedies into positive message for children

Posted: Updated:

EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio - A young woman from East Liverpool has taken a tragic life event and turned it into a positive message for others.

In 2011, Jennifer Hallam lost her husband Troy and 22-month-old daughter Hailey in a car crash on Interstate-79. Wednesday, on what would have been Hailey's fourth birthday, Jennifer will release a book she wrote titled "A Hug Through The Air."  

Hallam said the story is written from Hailey's perspective, and she hopes it will be helpful to families dealing with a devastating loss.  

"So far the reaction has been very positive to the book, and a lot of people seem to be very comforted by it. A lot of people seem to be excited about it's release because they hope it's going to bring them comfort," Hallam said.

The book will be available on Amazon's web site Wednesday, and is also available at several businesses in the East Liverpool area.
