Om Podcasten

Welcome to Thriving in the Midst of Chaos! This show is about surviving parenthood while having a child with special needs, while attempting to keep your self and your sanity intact. We share our experiences and discuss how we survived, what worked for us, and what didn’t work for us. This is a nonjudgmental space, to realize that we all actually WILL live through this and to make thriving in parenthood an actual possibility. We will also be sharing fails, nails, and comical tales, as well as one self-care strategy each week that helped keep us sane.
