Amazing! So refreshing and real

As a mom, and wife I can say this podcast lifts me up when I’m down. It’s my go to when I take a much needed walk or go driving all over the place to and from therapy appointments. Thank you for sharing your life and other mom’s lives with me. You helped give me the courage to take a much needed vacation. And, guess what everyone on the home front survived! Thank you! Thank you for doing what you love and being so good at letting mom’s of these beautiful children know what we face, we don’t face alone.

Heartfelt and REAL

I am a huge fan of this podcast and Mary Susan. As a fellow special needs mama, I know exactly how lonely this road can feel. This show proves that we are not alone, there are mamas bears all around us! The honesty, grit, and tenacity of Mary Susan and her guests is truly remarkable. This podcast speaks to my heart on so many levels. Highly recommend!

So real and relatable

I am so glad to have found this podcast. Mary Susan is so real, relatable, honest, and natural, in her role as host and in telling her own story about her daughter. I feel so encouraged by the stories shared here, and listen regularly while at the gym. The special needs parenting journey feels very isolating at times, but this podcast captures many of the aspects of our unique lives that show there is community if we seek it. Wherever you are on the spectrum of the special needs parenting role, whether you are in acceptance or anger/denial, or somewhere in between, you will find people who can relate in this real and honest podcast.
