This means we are friends. Your support makes the blog and podcast possible -- really, it does! You know how sometimes we may feel like we are alone and we need a tribe to support us? A tribe that "gets it" when it comes to parenting kids with disabilities? This is it. This is that tribe. Maybe you can think of it as a big virtual family.

About

You are here! Welcome to my patreon page.

Chances are that, like me, you are the parent of a child with a disability (or a disabled adult or you love someone with a disability). I understand the tremendous joys, the overwhelming challenges and everything else in between. 

It’s no secret many parents of kids with disabilities are weighed down by the everyday demands in life. Sometimes, it feels as if we’re merely surviving, doesn't it?

I want to assure you that you’re not alone and someone understands the loneliness and the grief, but also the joy and the love that you experience parenting a child with a disability. So this is the place where you will find me reaching out to you giving hope and encouragement when you need it. The place where we change our narrative to be one of empowerment and abundant joy. It is also the place where you will find community and be reminded you are not alone.

A little about me: I am a national speaker, a disability ministry consultant (I was a pastor's wife for 13 years before my husband "retired" and became a mental health counselor) a writer, and co-host of the Unexceptional Moms podcast (I get to do the show with my best friend, Erin). I have three kids and two of them have disabilities.

I have spent 12 years dedicated to writing and creating content for parents of kids with disabilities.

I was the Parenting Editor for The Mighty (one of the largest health and disability media companies), but recently resigned my position. I needed to do this for my family but also because of the many emails I received weekly asking for more podcast episodes and more content on my blog. I knew my heart was with you, and I want to give my time and effort providing what you need. We are in this together. 

Your patreon support allows me to cover the cost of maintaining a website, producing a podcast, and create the content you love.

Here, we are going to talk about mental health, unresolved grief, creating new narratives, finding a support system, self-care, our physical health, guardianship, school inclusion and many more topics relevant to our lives. We are going to gather and learn and grow. 

I want to share in your stories, your joys, triumphs and challenges. And I am opening up to invite you into mine.
