Pj’s friendship with Patrice Barker goes back to University days when they met in first year. Patrice and Paul Barker have three children, Tyler, Jesse and Heather. In many ways they are a typical Canadian family. The one thing that sets them apart is that they are a family living with a member with special needs. Tyler was born with cerebral palsy. The purpose of the podcast was to offer an inside look at what it’s like to find that what you thought your child’s life would be like is suddenly changed by a diagnosis. The Barkers are warm, laugh a lot and have a family that doesn’t revolve around Tyler’s needs but rather incorporates them. Mom to Mom – with 6 kids between them – Pj and Patrice welcome you into this personal and very revealing conversation.
