We are two moms who like to talk. We call ourselves the 4am Mom Club because more nights than not, our kids are awake at 4am. We both have very medical, complicated, rare, beautiful children. We have never met each other in real life. So it is only fitting we host a show together.
When Autumn Comes is a place for medical and special needs mamas, and those who love them, who are facing a life they never expected. Each week we share hope-filled stories of special needs families, all shapes, colors, sizes and abilities, all in different phases of their special needs or medical journey. Each conversation allows us to share beautiful, heart wrenching stories and experiences from one mama to another. Together we are navigating through the complexities of the lives we never expected to be living.
Moms like you, like us!
