Amanda Trojan and I chatted about life and the crazy ride she’s been on with her son Rafael. You’ll hear the whole story in the episode so I don’t want to give it away. Spoiler alert – he’s a fighter! Rafael has been diagnosed with Trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome), Tetralogy of Fallot, and Dandy Walker Malformation.
Her joy and love for life is contagious and authentic and you’ll be able to tell throughout this episode.
Amanda shares about her family’s stay in the NICU and the opportunity to build an unlikely community that still stays in touch and supports each other today.
She also shares about her own weight loss and health journey, how it started and where she is now. Amanda shares about how she is capable of hard things, and has gained a different perspective on life.
Amanda talks about asking for help before she gets resentful and what it looks like to let go of control and expectations of motherhood.
I hope you are encouraged by Amanda’s journey, her honesty and vulnerability and the story of her entry into motherhood.
