From the StoryCorps Archives: Liz and Jakob struggle to have a child
Just over two years ago, the StoryCorps mobile soundbooth came to Wilmington and recorded rich stories of family, heritage, and personal struggle. WHQR News is thrilled to bring this wonderful catalog of Wilmington back for a second look.
Today we bring you the story of a couple struggling to conceive. Liz and Jakob Karlsmark realize, after eight years of trying, they will likely never have a child. They find themselves grappling with one question: “What are we here for, then?”
