Today I’m chatting with autism mom and DIY queen, Whitney Gainer. Whitney is bravely sharing her journey with her 3 year old son, Jed, for the first time ever. As a mother of six, Whitney definitely had her fair share of parenting experience! But as she explains in this episode, Whitney was thrown a complete curveball with her youngest. Today we are discussing all the details of their autism journey and the impact it’s had on her and her family. I first became familiar with Whitney several years ago through her very popular brand, Shanty2Chic. Whitney and her sister Ashley started with a blog and it quickly became a huge success. The sisters went on to build a major business including their own show on HGTV. But with their primary focus on building furniture, Whitney kept her private family life off the blog...until she had a change of heart and decided to open up about their story. Whitney refers to her sons journey as “their treasure” and today she is opening up and sharing for the first time. This conversation is beautiful, heartfelt and raw. I’m so honored that Whitney shared their story with me. I hope you enjoy listening!
