The Unseen and Indirect Costs of Raising a Rare Child
The costs of raising a rare child are daunting. Last time, we talked about the medical costs. In part 2 of the conversation, we are going to go a little bit deeper. We are going to discuss the impact on Sanath and Ramya’s lives, their mental health, and their relationships.
In addition to the impact on their lives, Raghav’s condition takes away from their time at work and the contributions they can make. This could prevent them from advancing their careers. Fortunately, their employers have been especially good at accommodating their needs and providing them the flexibility they need.
This is one of our shorter episodes, but we think you will agree that it is one of the most important.
