Want to be a better human? Start listening to this podcast!

When I first started listening to your podcast, I shared it with all of the people in my life that had multiples. I then started sharing with others who worked with children of all different types of abilities. Then I realized that if I indeed wanted to change the minds of the outer rectums, I would have to start sharing it with anyone and everyone!
Keep talking ladies! The whole world hasn’t heard you yet.

Real, honest, hilarious, heartbreaking, and so educational about the challenges faced by kids with special needs and their families. Kate and Mandy are amazing - thank you!
