Your Baby is Autistic - Congratulations! Embracing Your New Normal

It's Autism Awareness Month and we are talking to Tiffany Hutchinson, a mom with a son on the spectrum. She talks about the rough road getting to a diagnosis, how she felt when she finally had answers and what she thinks are some of the misconceptions many have about children with autism.

The experience led her to use her love of writing to write about the experience and from there, she started her blog, A Mama Bear and Her Cub: https://amamabearandhercub.com/author/amamabearandhercub/

April is Autism Awareness Month and I can't wait for you to listen to this discussion. Moms of color have a story to tell about raising children with autism and this story is inspirational, relatable and real ya'll, so let's get into it!

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.
