Englewood Review of Books Podcast: Disability and Limitations

gradient blue graphic with the Englewood Review of Books logoLimitations are so often what lead to love because if we can freely offer ourselves as both gifted and limited people, and receive other people in that same light, then it opens up so many possibilities for interdependence.”

Disability and Limitations

I really loved talking with Jen Pollock Michel and Liuan Huska on this week’s Englewood Review of Books podcast. It is so good for me to be reminded of the way my own mind and heart shifted after Penny was born and diagnosed with Down syndrome. Her birth prompted me to rethink what it means for all of us to be fully human and opened up a world of possibility.

On the Englewood Review of Books Podcast

We talked about prenatal testing and the way our society imagines disability and suffering and limitations and the possibilities for a new way of seeing one another as gifts.
