    Foster Love

    Foster Love

    Foster parenting to me is another form of special needs parenting. I have felt called for years to become a foster mother and while I know it will be incredibly difficult I know it will be incredibly fulfilling. Many have told us we are crazy, have told us we have "too much on our plates" but we are ignoring the naysayers and taking the leap of faith and listening to our hearts.  Raising a child with disabilities has taught me to be brave. You can be brave too in whatever dreams you have for your family.

    Mamas, you are in for a treat for this podcast, listen in to our incredible Lift Mama Shari Boone! Shari is a wonderful and talented mother, advocate, travel agent, wife, friend and medical mama extraordinaire.

    Mom guilt, we ALL have it

    Mom guilt, we ALL have it

    Mom guilt, we all have it and for some reason, women are especially wired to feel like we are not doing enough or being enough for everyone. Add in disability, and special needs mom guilt is a whole new level. Well let's figure out ways to shift our perspective and give ourselves a break, Mamas we are doing a great job.

    The Crazy Things People say... when they shouldn't.

    The Crazy Things People say... when they shouldn't.

    When you are a mother to a child with special needs, you learn to develop an ultra thick skin.  Not by choice mind you, but dealing with society even well meaning friends and family comes with dealing with the staring and the ignorant comments that inevitably come. How do we deal? How do we respond? How do we face the world everyday with our advocate "hats" on even when we are tired, stressed and sick of always having to educate others. It is not easy, I too struggle and have several doozies I am going to share with you all today about encountering those "I cannot believe they just said that comments."  Let's laugh, cry, educate and move forward when these situations happen; collect these unfortunate moments and use them to fuel the energy we need to advocate for our children, to change society's views on where they fit in the world. 



    We can do it, one special needs mother at a time.

    Advocacy can be the best medicine

    Advocacy can be the best medicine

    Getting involved in your communities, advocating for families, serving on hospital or education committees, and councils, all of these are fulfilling ways to channel that special needs momming experience, serve others, and cope with the stress we have as special needs mothers. I promise, it works, and opportunities are out there. YOU just have to take a leap of faith.

    "Dear Medical Resident, what I want to tell you..."

    "Dear Medical Resident, what I want to tell you..."

    As mothers raising children with medical issues, we must teach the medical professionals working with our children that they are not just treating our children, they are treating our families. We can lead by experience and help shape the future physicians taking care of our incredible kids and other families like ours. Parent perspective is crucial! Don’t be afraid to share yours.

When I need a pick me up

Listen to this when I need a pick me up and even when I am in a good place emotionally. Don’t feel so alone. And live to hear how others are thriving even in the most challenging of situations.

I wish I had this podcast 13 years ago

What a gift this podcast is! It feels like a labor of love from Brittany to moms like me. There is nothing more comforting than a “me too” and that is how this feels. Brittany, you are inspiring, comforting, gracious, humble, knowledgeable, and I am in awe watching all that you have accomplished.

Great podcast!

Love it! Recommending to my wife who is a special needs mom. I’m going to listen too as a special needs dad.
