Daddy, Daughter and Disability - What It's Like to Be a Girl Dad When Your Baby has a Disability

It's my hubby ya'll! Joining me at the table to talk about being a girl dad and how he handled the news when her diagnoses began pouring in. Sometimes the importance of a dad is overlooked and for Father's Day, I wanted to shine a light on that special relationship between a girl and her dad.

So check out my boo! He has some great wisdom to share and he will talk about the difference between being a boy dad and a girl dad (since we have a son too!). And, you'll find out why it was so important to me that he attend school conferences and events for both of our children.

It's a Father's Day edition of In My Shoes, because a girl needs her dad!

Happy Father's Day!

About the Podcast

In My Shoes Podcast
You don't know what it's like until you've been In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a podcast about women of color and the issues we face but sometimes don't get to talk about. We will give our perspective, allowing you a glimpse into what it's like to deal with racism, infertility, mental illness, parenting, relationships, colorism, politics, hair, health, you name it - in our shoes.

Sometimes it just takes a moment to hear a personal story to realize things aren't always the way they seem. When you hear someone's personal story you can see things through their eyes, from their perspective, even if it's just for a moment - but that moment may be all it takes to change the way you think about or view women from other cultural backgrounds and skin tones. Walk a mile in my shoes, and find out things aren't always the way they seem.
