I recently had the pleasure of interviewing author and advocate Karen Kain. Her book entitled “A Unique Life Fully Lived”, is the story of her journey with her daughter Lorrin who at six weeks had an adverse reaction to her one and only DPT vaccination. It attacked her brain, leaving her with severe brain damage. Feeling abandoned by modern medicine, karen turned to alternative treatments and spiritual guidance. To this day Karen get messages from Lorrin telling her to have “fun”.
Karen’s heart warming story takes you through Lorrain’s life, which was truly fully lived. She engaged in activities and did many things that special needs kids would never have the opportunity to participate in.
Karen is now an advocate, speaker and author speaking about Lorrain, but also about the challenges that caregivers of special needs children are faced with. It does not matter if you have a special needs child or not, Karen’s story is one of strength, compassion and love and for a daughter that in her eyes was her best friend.
