In this episode, Im really excited to be joined by my friend Brittany Joseph who is a 26-year-old mother of five children that are between the ages of nine and two. She's married to her high school sweetheart, who is currently employed in the Air Force.
She walks us through her experience with becoming a mom at a young age and what it was like going through her journey of finding out that her daughter was diagnosed with epilepsy and autism.
Some valuable points discussed in this episodes are
You can come back from anything that you are going through.
Even if it doesn’t seem like it, there are ways to come back from decisions that you have made or anything that you go through. Brittany wanted to show her kids this by going back to highschool after having a baby to finish her education.
To accept childs autism diagnosis, its normal to grieve the death of the fantasies you have for your child. Rainey is still the same girl, but Brittanys dreams for her had to shift.
You can’t do it alone. Everybody needs somebody. Whether its a friend, a bishop, a parent, or a cousin, theres always somebody out there to talk to! Find an outlet. Not everyone has a group of people, and that’s okay. Reach out to someone, because there will always be that person there to listen to you and hear you out.
Things will get better eventually. It may not seem like it now, but if you give it time, you will be able to look back and see that things have improved. It may take years, but it is possible that eventually, you will be able to see the growth and the progress that has been made.
