Can marriage survive the loss of a child?  Losing a child is the hardest thing a couple can go through. In fact 80 percent of marriages end in divorce after the loss of a child.  For the month of December we are sharing the stories of 4 couples and how their marriages not only survived the loss of a child, but continued to thrive.    

In today’s episode we have the Warren’s.   Ivori and Kevin Warren have been married for 16 years and are a the mommy and daddy to an Angel  born in heaven on August 21, 2017. Ivori is a creative entrepreneur and many times has some bright ideas, one of which is the Loving Our Angel blog. The blog is their personal journal about her and hubby’s journey to healing.  Loving Our Angel is also a new initiative that has been added to their non-profit foundation to increase pregnancy and infant loss awareness. As a very private person, it wasn’t her initial thought to be so transparent, but as God did when she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in February 2012, He is leading her to be transparent about their loss.  Ivori holds degrees in both Psychology and Human Resources Management – and currently working toward a doctoral degree in Higher Education.   Kevin holds degrees in both Information Systems & Science and Information Assurance – and currently working towards a doctoral degree in Applied Information System Management.

She is also a MOMpreneur – Creative Director of Ivori Nicole EventsTM, professor, author, speaker, mentor, Chief Operating Officer of the Warren Community Cares Foundation, and active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.  He is a United States Army Veteran, Master Rated 82nd Airborne Paratrooper, Chief Executive Officer  of the Warren Community Cares Foundation, and active member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated. We reside in Northern Maryland with our two fur babies, Kole (the spoiled Pit Bull) and Kloe (the bossy cat).  Here are the Warren’s.
