Episode 26 | Let's Talk About: Disability, Motherhood, and Grief w/ Joy Thayer

The Woman Beings sit down with Joy Thayer, a mother, business owner, and prominent member of her community. She shares her story of raising her son, Sawyer, who was diagnosed as a baby with De Barsy syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Sawyer was the life of the party, a jokester, and full of joy. He passed away shortly before his 21st birthday, leaving behind a community of family and friends who loved him dearly. Joy shares the beautiful story of his life, and how she has walked through the grieving process. She talks about the light her son carried, and how it far outweighed the burden of his care. She shares all the fun, from Disney trips, to arts and crafts, to Sawyer’s favorite things (like strawberries and cute girls). Tune into this episode to hear a celebration of life and the unexplainable power of a mother’s love.    Follow Joy: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/purejoy7/ Website: https://thejoyofimperphection.wordpress.com/   ---       Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/womanbeingpodcast/ Website: https://www.womanbeingcommunity.com/  --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
