Episode 6: Families are never conventional

10 months ago

Traditional is not a word Carissa Johnson would ever use to describe her upbringing, but one thing that upbringing taught her was that love can be found anywhere. Her disability had nothing to do with her choice to adopt, but it does shape how she teaches her seven year old son, Will, that all people everywhere are worthy of love. I talk with Carissa about family, fairness, and the social model of disability.

Thanks to Chris Ankin for use of his song, “Change.”
