Coming Back: Conversations on life after loss

Jan 10, 2018

Harriet Cabelly's dream of the perfect child was shattered when her daughter was diagnosed with neurological deficits at just nine months old. "Why me?" became her mantra. Another medical crisis in her daughter's life challenged Harriet to practice exercising her muscle of resilience and that defining moment in her life laid the foundation for her new book, Living Well Despite Adversity. Also on the show, I answer a listener question about how age determines how we grieve and how much about death and loss we can comprehend as children.
