Chicken Soup for MY Soul

I was listening to a podcast and the host referenced this podcast. All I can say is WOW. Bo's stories are relatable and inspiring. He navigates the circumstances of his family dynamics and the adaptations they make to support everyone.

Bo's stories will help you feel connected and not alone on this journey. We all experience humor, fear, grief, joy, and a host of other emotions on the regular as we care and grow with our children that are uniquely amazing, wonderful and mysterious all at once.

Though my daughter is older and does not have a diagnosis, I can relate to his stories about his. I find myself thinking, "I remember when Emily was that age and..." It is like he has captured so many of our family experiences and put them out into the world.

Heartwarming and real

I love keeping up with Tess and learning from this family. As a fellow rare disease parent, it’s so comforting to hear from others who get it. Tune in for a smile and some life lessons.

Beautiful every week

Bo speaks with authenticity, grace and wisdom about Tess, the unique challenges he faces as a special needs dad and the unique beauty she embodies. Bravo and thank you — for giving special needs parents and caregivers a sense they are not alone, and for giving Tess a voice.
