Wow! Thank God for this podcast!

I am the mother of a pediatric stroke warrior. My baby boy is almost 3 and had a stroke either a week before birth or during. Finding this podcast has changed my life. Listening to other moms talking about special needs parenting is absolutely amazing. I laugh, I cry, I say, “yes!” Mary Susan is amazing! Thanks so much for having this podcast, your dream is beautiful.

Just what I needed

I’m so grateful to have this space when I feel isolated. Not overly religious like so many special needs resources, honest, funny, darn delightful

Essential

I have in the past searches for a podcast on this topic and been unable to find what I needed. But finally, This podcast is exactly right. Total Goldilocks moment! As a mama to two kids with special needs I’ve struggled to find others who relate to my life. But every single episode there are people who just seem to get it. I have cried and laughed and felt much needed validation in this hard but beautiful life we are living. I can’t stop telling everyone I know. Thank you Mary Susan for taking the time to create this much needed space. You are a light!
