ONCE UPON A GENE – EPISODE 009

The Washington State Fathers Network

Along my own journey, I’ve felt passionate about capturing the perspective of fathers, grandfathers and other male caregivers. As moms, we may have an easier time connecting with other moms at therapy, school and on social media. My husband, a father with a child with complex needs has had a different experience than I have. I want to ensure we’re both taking care of ourselves individually. I’m constantly reading Facebook posts about moms wishing there was someone for their husbands to talk to about their child with healthcare needs.

Louis Mendoza, the Manager of The Washington State Fathers Network, is helping to give a powerful voice to men who have children with healthcare needs. Some of his work involves connecting men with each other socially, providing them with resources, telling their story, advocating for change and promoting inclusion in their communities.
