If you are like me and you’ve ever let your circumstances determine what you think you are capable of doing, you HAVE to listen to this episode!
Your perspective on your own limitations as a mom is guaranteed to change after hearing my guest’s story.
My guest on this episode is Megan Dejarnett. Megan is a wife, mom to two sweet boys. She is also a writer and speaker. She’s passionate about motivating people to approach life with an “I can do this attitude”. All impressive things on their own.
But what you need to know is that she was diagnosed with a genetic neuromuscular disorder called Spinal Muscular Atrophy when she was two years old. Doctors told her that her life expectancy would be around 15 years!
She recently celebrated her 30th birthday as a healthy mom of two biological children!!
We talk about
- Her story of pregnancy with Spinal Muscular Atrophy
- Being a mom with special needs to two young boys, one who has special needs himself
- Removing labels others try to put on us as well as the ones we give ourselves
- How we’re all trying to figure out motherhood, no matter what “kind of mom” you are
She sums up her journey of motherhood, and her life, in her beautiful quote, “You are capable of more than you think”.
