Becoming the parent of a child with disabilities can be daunting and overwhelming, rewarding and incredible.
In 2005, my eldest son was born with a bump. He didn’t breathe on delivery and was diagnosed ten weeks later with having severe brain damage. From then, my husband and I hurtled down an unmarked road of loving a child with complex disabilities and life-limiting epilepsy.
In 2015 I founded Born at the Right Time to pursue #BridgingtheGap for families like mine. Is it only when we are bridging the gap between professionals and parents, policy and provision, principles and practice, faith and reality, can families like mine live our best lives.
“In my view, the more professionals that hear Rachel speak the better!”
As a nurse and parent, I am well placed to develop and deliver training for practitioners who care for families of children with complex disabilities.
Story-telling changes lives and positively impact professional practice. Authenticity about the joys and challenges for parenting a child with disabilities has a profound impact on communities of faith.
Faith shapes our world view, how we live and how we love. Through bridging the gap between life and faith we find beauty in the brokenness.
The beauty of writing is it was just like talking but without the interruptions. Stories have the power to change the teller and listener.
