It’s our Season One finale! And we’re celebrating by taking your questions! From adoption to social media to navigating extracurricular activities, Heather, Mercedes and Micha are here to answer your deepest questions (or maybe just the first questions that came to your mind).
It is finally here! Welcome to the episode where we talk about all things therapy, and trust us… you won’t want to miss this one. What do you do when it feels like therapies are taking over? How much therapy should your child be receiving? How do you balance therapies with everything else of life? We cover it all…
Welcome to the Dad episode. In honor of Father’s Day coming up the dads take over this episode and talk all about being a dad and what it specifically looks like when parenting kids with Down syndrome.
We continue our conversation about friendship, this time focusing on one particular relationship between two little girls in Amarillo, Texas in the 80’s. Micha sits down with her lifelong friend Melynn Henry to talk about Carey, their childhood friend with Down syndrome, who was included in their classrooms and sports teams and Brownies.
Welcome to the latest episode of The Lucky Few Podcast. On this episode we talk all about friendship. We get to hear from another awesome Heather who works for the awesome Gigi’s Playhouse and her friend Bill (who we are super jealous of by the way) and then Lyndcee who started the Just Like Me Foundation.
We share our personal adoption stories and are so lucky to get to chat with the amazing Lisa Eicher from @eicherumba who has four awesome kids and two of whom she adopted and happen to have Down syndrome. We laugh and cry and hear some great advice from Lisa.
Here at The Lucky Few Podcast we are all about raising the bar for individuals with Down syndrome. One great way that we have seen that is through Ruby’s Rainbow and we are so excited to have the Liz Plachta, the founder, with us today. Ruby’s Rainbow provides college scholarships to individuals with Down syndrome.
On this second episode of The Lucky Few Podcast we talk about siblings, and because siblings can be difficult, we brought in some of the best ones we know! We get to talk to @Jimbo_Is_The_Man’s sisters about growing up with him and how they have navigated all of the life’s changes and we chat with Ace Eicher of @eicherumba!
