Perspective is the precious gift Rachel gives us in this interview. We were left inspired, encouraged, and educated on a subject many people may avoid: special needs and disability. Listen to her tips on what to say/what not say/ inclusion and how to change the world!
F.I.V.E. things that I would tell a mom whose child just received a diagnoses of any kind: 1. Give yourself time: to process and FEEL whatever is on your heart. 2. Take it one day at a time, don't jump too far ahead to the future. Just get through today. 3. Remember that a diagnoses is just a small part of who your child is; it does not define them. 4. When you are ready, connect with another mom who has been on a similar journey or find a support network that can offer resources for you and your family. 5. Advocate for what you know is best for your child - you will make a big difference in their life and the lives of other people/families.
