Episode 5: Karen Harrison-Fertility Struggles & Losing a Child
Updated: Dec 1, 2019
This week I get to speak with Karen Harrison. Karen is a mom, wife, child life specialist, avid woodburner, and one of the founders of Forget Me Not Ministries. As a child life specialist Karen spends her days inside a hospital helping children and their families stay strong during some of the hardest moments of their lives. This draw to help others in times of need extends outside of work as she serves families through Forget Me Not Ministries. Forget Me Not is a ministry focused on helping those that have struggled with fertility issues or are grieving the loss of a baby born in any trimester. It's a heavy place to be, but Karen and those that serve with her help the whole family to grieve well and remember the child that has died by delivering free Forget Me Not boxes filled with items to help families begin to heal. Forget Me Not's annual signature event, Made Known, will be taking place Oct 19, 2019. Wives and husbands, separately or together, along with any of their community that wants to participate, can gather with other parents and have a moment to remember their children and share their story.
