How I Find Joy While Parenting My Atypical Kid

I just turned in the first draft of my book!!!

This has been a wild 2 years, and the process isn’t over, but it was hard and I did it. I’m proud of myself, and I hope you’ll celebrate with me!

Big or small, celebrating milestones is important to us and to those who love us. Tell me what you’re celebrating!

At this point, the last sentence of the last chapter of my book is:

“Through self-compassion and mindfulness, you can transform your relationship with your atypical kid, and co-create a more inclusive world.”

What do you think?

Here’s a 3 minute self-compassion break for you on facebook.

I’ll be sharing bits from the book as it progresses, so hit this 💌 button, and you’ll get notified.
