Video: The Parenting With Disabilities Tag

Parenting with disabilities is not always what it seems to the outside world. In this video, I answer many of the questions I’ve received as a blind parent, all of them compiled into the Parenting With Disabilities tag. Even if you yourself haven’t been tagged, if you want to complete it, please do! Link back to this video if you’d like to, but definitely comment with a link to your own response, written, audio recorded or filmed, so I can enjoy your answers.

My Treasures, it has been quite a long break from you all. Covid hit, life got crazy, and no more writing or filming was happening.

It’s been a while since I’ve written to you, I know, but I did enjoy posting my videos here so you could all see I was still around. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to get into writing again. I’m slowly slipping back into the public eye and taking it easy.

For now, please accept my first video in over a year and a half. I filmed this to celebrate reaching 100 YouTube subscribers, and it’s been cut into two parts.

Please watch and enjoy. If you find any value in what you see, I invite you to like, comment and subscribe!

I love and have missed each and every one of you for being so steadfast, and I hope you are all staying safe during this time that remains so trying for us all.
