This episode is different from any I’ve ever done before. Today I’m having a conversation with my friend, Jody Warshawsky. Jody is a fellow mom and podcaster, she’s also someone I truly admire and respect. Jody and I decided to come together for this episode (which will be airing on both of our podcasts) to talk about the recent social injustice and racism issues affecting our country. I am not someone who would typically speak out on these issues. However, with the murder of George Floyd I can not stay silent. This is too important. We need to speak on it, but also listen and learn.
Jody and I are also discussing the recent controversy in the autism community with YouTuber Myka Stauffer. This news really rocked the autism world. As autism parents it’s hard to not feel emotionally pulled into this story. Jody and I talk about our feelings regarding “rehoming” sweet Huxley and our hope for him going forward.
This conversation was tough but I’m extremely glad we had it. These subjects are sensitive and I wanted to be sensitive to them. That being said I think it is SO important to discuss the hard stuff- which is why I decided to speak out. “I understand that I will never understand, but I stand with you.” Thank you so much for listening!
