My husband, Steve, was so blown away by Connor's three episodes that he suggested a recap episode to highlight the emotional journey and lessons learned from our (the parent) perspective. We also thought it would be great for all of the resources mentioned to live in one place. In this episode I share:
An in-depth look at specific moments during our journey
Which decisions were fantastic and which were underwhelming at best
Specific takeaways and thoughts to ponder
A look into my soul the soul of my family
Resources, resources, resources!!!
