Learning from the Young Ones: My Interview with Austin
Austin’s healing story and my connection with this child is no accident. We were meant to be together. I never dreamed a child would come into my life and rock my world. The process of adopting Austin has been the most unexpected blessing in my life.
This wise soul has been through a lot and he shares his helpful perspective on trauma and loss. Austin wrote his first motivational speech in sixth grade. He’s chaplain of his private school, leading the middle school in prayer. Since Austin has overcome so many challenges, he’s already a spiritual leader.
Austin teaches me every day and we are blessed to learn from each other. I share our journey in this episode.
In this interview, my twelve year-old and I discuss:
*How Austin overcame kidney disease
*What it was like for Austin when I came into his life at seven years old
*Being raised to think for yourself
*Being true to yourself and protecting your own mind amidst group thinking
*Why nutrition is important, even thought it’s hard
This episode is a little piece of my heart. Thank you for listening to my interview with Austin and letting him share his healing story with you. I hope it inspires you!
