This week Annette Hines, the host of Parenting Impossible, explores in her introduction a new year, a new look at where we are in our finances, financial planning, and support services in the world of Covid as we move into year three of the pandemic. The guest interview is a re-broadcast of one of our favorite episodes! Leah Moore, an author, mom, teacher, and advocate raising awareness for cri du chat. Leah’s story of raising three kids, one with Cri du chat syndrome is full of relatable stories of triumph and hardships while navigating the world of disability. Recently Leah released a book sharing her family’s journey, Loving You Big. This book is a memoir celebrating life’s victories and the profound impact of kindness. Please join us for this important and uplifting conversation.

As Annette mentions in the intro, she recently purchased a building in Massachusetts. As of January 1, 2022, Special Needs Companies, Special Needs Law Group and Special Needs Family Services will all be housed in this new location. They will be working with designers and contractors to create a family-friendly environment that is special needs accessible. Annette wants to hear from you – what is something you would like to see or something that would make your visit more comfortable when you visit a professional’s office. Of course, they will focus on ramps and more handicapped parking but are there other items that you would like to see or were maybe lacking in your last visit to a professional’s office? Please reach out HERE and let us know!
