As I spoke with Dan and Stacy, our guests for this episode, I was struck by how clearly their love for each other and their kids came across. Dan’s thoughfulness about how ADHD affects their family of four, and Stacy’s understanding and acceptance of the struggles it presents were moving. As was their clear support for one another, and their children.
I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it.
