I’ve known Susan for many years and I wanted to bring her on the show because I’ve loved watching her bold and fearless journey in the way she’s raised her differently-wired son, Ryan. This past year Ryan officially “launched” as he left home to start university out of state, and I knew I had to sit down with Susan to learn more about her story and how they got to where they are today. I know many listeners have kids in elementary and middle school, and in our low moments, many of us question whether or not our kids will ever launch at all. I hope you find this conversation, as well as Susan’s infectiously positive and powerful outlook on life, inspiring!
