I could not believe it when I received a message from Gary Leavitt, radio host for WMEX in the Boston area. He had come across my name and mission with my podcast, Rise with the Light, and was so inspired he wanted me to be a guest on his show. 

I am so grateful I am able to spread the word about what my mission and purpose is in life, to help other people by sharing my experiences, insights, mindset perspectives and stories my son and I have had throughout our journey with autism. 

My son was diagnosed when he was 3 years old and in this interview, you can learn about: 

  • How my son was a complete surprise - I am divorced and have been a single mom since pretty much when he was conceived. 
  • Why I started this podcast
  • Why I called it Rise with the Light
  • What I have learned from my son
  • What the goal is of the podcast
  • Topic examples I will cover
  • Blessings that come with autism

  • My mission is to help as many families as I can who are raising children with autism or other special needs. I would like to be a resource for families, ecen just to have someone to relate to, to hear something you may need to hear to get through what you're going through. 

    Thank you for listening and follow me @susanfink.rise on instagram or @susanfink.risewlight on facebook.
