On our Radically (a)Parent podcast we discuss the experiences of parenthood that are often overlooked or less explored out in the open.

Join host Stacey Lindgren for a conversation with Rachel Katz Maeroff, whose daughter was born with a congenital amputation resulting in only one hand. Rachel has a beautiful perspective on parenting and has great advice for parents with children with noticeable differences.

It is also sometimes easier to shy away from people that are different out of awkwardness or out of fear of having an uncomfortable conversation.
