Our guest this week is Nelson Rascon of Tacoma, WA who is the father of three, a realtor and co-founder of Dads Move – Strengthening The Roles Of Dads In Raising Their Kids With Special Needs.
Nelson and his wife, JoRay, have been married for 9 years and between them are the proud parents of three children; Samantha (30) who has cognitive delays, Eric (26) who has Autism, severe Epilepsy and who is bi-polar, and Kaleb (26) who has Asperger’s and was more recently diagnosed as bi-polar too.
Nelson reflects on his parents divorce, growing up without his dad, moving with his mom and siblings from California to Alaska, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, where at his age 13, his mom took her own life.
He also reflects on becoming a single father, remarrying and helping raise his step children as well as the back story on co-founding Dads Move, a non profit organization, whose mission is: to strengthen the father’s role in raising children with behavioral health needs through education, peer support and advocacy.
We’ll hear all the above and more on this episode of the Special Fathers Network Dad to Dad Podcast.
