Full of love and learnings!
I listen to Homebase Hope to be a better big brother for Eli, my little brother living on the spectrum. After listening to only a few episodes so far, I’ve already learned so much that I haven’t already known from my own research or that of my mom. Rhiannon and her guests are loving, positive, solution-oriented, and presume competence. I can’t wait to listen to more!!!
