Parenting Parentless - Katie C. Reilly

Dec 16th, 2021 | Episode 212

Growing up, Katie C. Reilly, hadn't thought much about grief or mental health. Then, within the span of four years, Katie's mother died of ALS and her father died of cancer. This grief sent her spinning. As a journalist and writer, Katie turned to research as a way to better understand her own experience. In this conversation we delve into being a parentless parent, grieving a miscarriage, and how complex relationships can shape our grief.

Follow Katie on Twitter and her website. Kaite's article on the first year of parenting parentless.
