The pain and losses of infertility and miscarriage are often not recognized by our society. It is hard to mourn a loss others do not see. This grief can hang around and impair our joy in our family through adoption, egg donation, sperm donation, or surrogacy. How do men and women process this grief in different ways. How can you resolve this grief.Our guests to talk about ambiguous or disenfranchised loss are Dr. Ken Doka, Professor at The College of New Rochelle and Senior Consultant to the Hospice Foundation of America. He is the the author of Disenfranchised Grief. And Kris Faasse, Director of Adoption for Bethany Christian Services, who has many years of experience counseling pre and post adoptive parents dealing with the grief of infertility and miscarriage.
