A few months back I had the opportunity to interview some fellow (disabled) parents and roll up their experiences along with my own for MetroParent Magazine.
I loved talking to these people and their stories totally touched me. I must confessed that it took all that was in me to not cry at times while they were talking. It was amazing to hear them say exactly how I often feel.
It’s hard to watch others do the things you want to do for your kids. You worry they are going to secretly wish their mom or dad was normal and be embarrassed. You feel guilty that your other half has to do more and might resent you or have regrets ever saying yes to the parenting adventure.
It was honor to meet these individuals, learn their story and write this piece. Please check it out.
