Tina B., life coach and parent in our big, beautiful disability community, delivers life lessons through storytelling.  Today we wrap up our 3-part series with Tina with an episode on Losing the Loneliness.  Even though you feel like you may never be alone, you also have undoubtedly experienced loneliness as a parent of a child with a disability.  Do the other parents know how it feels when yours is the child that can’t read?  Do they really understand that we can’t make the happy hour, because we have OT?  We don’t *want* to go to OT, but we know the many benefits of OT, the routine, etc.  Would they even want to listen to us?  Tina has been such a gift to the podcast, and today’s lesson, the fine one in my anniversary gift to you, is a good one!  Enjoy, friends!  Thanks for your support over the last year!  Here’s to another wonderful year here at ABCo.
