EP25- An extra chromosome of joy & a family of 7…

February 5, 2020

Cassie Allred never intended to have a house full of 5 children, but it is the biggest blessing. With the news of her fourth, came that her baby would have Down Syndrome. This was an anxiety provoking experience at the on-sight, but as she says, “I wouldn’t change Tessa’s extra chromosome for anything. It’s who she is.” 

Listen in on how Cassie advises the navigation of a diagnosis like this one and the community she has built, that has saved her during scary times. Also, how she juggles a house full of 5 beautiful children that are on “Team Allred”, and in addition, how she continues her passion of photography and taking care of herself. 

As she says, you cannot take care of anyone until you take care of yourself, so she makes it a priority. Getting up earlier than her kids, listening to podcasts, getting a run in or yoga this mama let’s nothing come between her and her ME time!
