Morgan Emo is a stay-at-home mom and small business owner of Child Life Coffee. The first year of her son’s life was full of tremendous emotional and spiritual tribulation, yet amazing spiritual and emotional growth. She and her husband started Child Life Coffee, realizing a dream to provide support to child life programs through the sale of fresh roasted coffee. Their mission and goal is to ensure that other hospitalized families receive the same care and support they did. It has taken immense courage and energy to start a small business, but provided her with a newfound sense of purpose and pride. She’s driven by a desire to give back while remaining present in the life of her family.
