Episodes Notes

Kelly Farley knows all too well what it feels like to lose a child.

After a series of fertility treatments, Kelly and his wife became pregnant with their first child, Katie. That excitement quickly turned to sorrow when they lost Katie in the fall of 2004.

About a year later, they decided that they would try to conceive again. This time it was a little boy and they felt blessed that little Noah was going to be a part of their lives. Noah passed away in the summer of 2006.  

It was through this experience that Kelly discovered that there weren't very many resources for men dealing with the loss of a child.

That's when he started up the Grieving Dads Project. The response was so overwhelming he felt he had to do more. 

Today on Connections, Kelly shares his story and talks more about the Grieving Dads project and his book, Grieving Dads: To the Brink and Back.
