Dive a little deeper into the topic of pet loss and grief by listening to today's podcast episode. I speak with Julie Marty-Pearson who has a doctorate in psychology and a podcast all about pets. Julie shares her own personal experiences with losing her two fur babies as well as ways to help you cope with the loss of your pet.
With the overturning of Roe Versus Wade, I felt compelled to interview women that have had abortions to open the conversation about these very individual and personal stories. I encourage you to listen to Kate's story with an open mind and an open heart, especially if you are against abortion.
Kate had a late-term abortion when she was 35 weeks pregnant due to severe medical issues and it being a very high-risk pregnancy putting Kate's life in danger. Kate's story is an emotional one but it's not an uncommon one. Kate shares the shock, grief, and fear she experienced when she learned her best option would be having an abortion for her very wanted and very loved baby.

My beautiful partner sadly died 7 weeks ago. Every second of my life has been filled with absolute sadness and desperation. My in-law family of whom I have been a part of has become estranged to me in the wake of his death which has added to the immense loss that I am feeling. I have just found out our beautiful dog who I had hoped would be returned to us is now not coming home. My heart has broken every single day since my mans death. Me and my children are continually devastated by the injustice we feel in the world. Although we try to remain optimistic (it is in our nature) it seems the universe is pushing so many lessons in our direction right now it is hard to understand what they are. I’m here sending lots of love to everyone in the community, I know
