Support for Caregivers of Special Needs Children

Show Notes:

Finding support for caregivers of special needs children can be a difficult task, and our mission on the Water Prairie Chronicles is to come alongside disability families and give them support. In today’s episode, Kristin Faith Evans joins Tonya to share her story of being a medical mama and caregiver for special needs children. Kristin talks about how her journey began with her first child and how her parenting path changed after her second child entered the family.

This is the first episode of a 2-part series with Kristin, and we think you’ll enjoy meeting this author, speaker, mother, wife, and mental health specialist!

Kristin would love to hear from you! Connect with her through the Disability Parenting Blog (formerly the Special Needs Moms Blog) at and let her know you heard about her blog on the Water Prairie Chronicles!
