A is for Arizona
Susanna Peace Lovell shares her journey in raising her now 11 year old daughter, Arizona, and her navigation through the worries and heartbreak of understanding the various diagnoses her daughter was given along the way : allergies, asthma, auditory processing disorder, Asperger’s syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety and more. Noticing that all of Arizona’s diagnoses happened to start with the letter A, Susanna had an epiphany : these “labels” didn’t define her daughter. A is for the perfect, whole & complete Arizona.
Conscious Uncoupling & Harmonious Co-Parenting
A staggering 75% of special needs families end in divorce, and the reason why that number isn’t higher is because it is so expensive to manage multiple households when funds are largely allocated toward your child’s needs. Having a child with special needs is stressful on a marriage, and it requires a conscious and specific path, from both parties, to navigate through life together. As a divorcee who tried to keep her marriage intact, Susanna Peace Lovell had to make conscious choices about moving through life, effectively and intentionally, with her ex-husband – keeping their daughter’s interests at heart. Susanna speaks about the power we have within to make CHOICES for a better life.
