New Disabled Parent Adventures in Advocacy

About The Video

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today is a day where we all celebrate our mothers.

But did you know that parents with disabilities are far more at risk of losing custody of their children than non-disabled parents? Removal rates can be as high as 80%.

So if you’re someone with a disability who is expecting or is thinking about having children, watch and share this video of our Storyteller, Ivanova, preparing to become a first time mother. They show that with the right supports, people with disabilities can be parents.
