EPISODE NOTES

Join this heart to heart conversation between Dr. Meg & Ashley LeMieux, a mother who tragically lost three children – two to a contested adoption, and one just 16 weeks into her pregnancy. Rising from the ashes of pain and loss, Ashley shares her journey out of fear into healing and transformation.

DR MEG & GUEST ASHLEY LEMIEUX (PART 1) 

This episode begins with Ashley sharing how she and her husband were permanent guardians of two children for over four years, and in the process of adopting, how the adoption was unexpectedly contested. As quickly as the children had come into their lives, they were taken from them, literally overnight. Three and a half years later, Ashley and her husband also tragically lost a biological son. Ashley describes these heart-wrenching experiences before she and Dr. Meg dive into discussing her book, “I Am Here: The Journey from Fear to Freedom”.  Key points include: 

  • What if it’s not fear? What if it’s love?
  • Moving forward in the face of loss and sadness
  • How our past can serve our present, which can then serve our future
  • Why happiness is unfulfilling when compared with peace

DR MEG & GUEST ASHLEY LEMIEUX (PART 2)

Dr. Meg and Ashley LeMieux continue their conversation, discussing the process of reimagining your future and reclaiming your power. Ashley introduces a tool called, “Clarity Mapping,” which helps determine priorities in order to create tangible, bite-sized, actionable items for each day. Listeners can learn to move through their pain and loss to find clarity using these confidence-building practices.
