Writer and kindergarten teacher Rachel Whalen is a mother to many, but has just one living child. After two miscarriages and the unexpected stillbirth of her daughter, Dorothy, Rachel conceived and delivered her daughter Frances. We're talking about the differences between parenting a dead child vs. a living one, what makes grieving parents want to try to conceive again after loss, and the powerful message Rachel has for grieving parents who are pregnant. Plus, I'm talking about the concept of life-rejection and sharing a passage from my new book Permission to Grieve.
Christina Rasmussen had a master's degree in counseling and psychology, but nothing prepared her for the death of her 35-year-old husband in 2006.

Plus, I'm reading an excerpt from my brand new book, Permission to Grieve, which is live TODAY on Amazon.
