Feathers Season 4 Episode 1 with Abby Perry: Pursuing Joy While Parenting a Child with Special Needs


In this episode, I interview Abby Perry.

Abby is an old soul, a Jesus girl, better in writing. She is an experienced nonprofit professional, innovative community and church member, pastor’s wife, mom of two boys and, at her core, a writer.She currently co-facilitates two community efforts – one promoting bridge-building racial reconciliation conversations, the other supporting area foster and adoptive families.


Abby Perry shares the circumstances surrounding her child and his special needs. She shares the struggles of the unknown, clinical depression, dreams she’s had to let go and all the while choosing to walk in joy and wholeheartedness in faith.

Have no fear of sudden disaster
    or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,
for the Lord will be at your side
    and will keep your foot from being snared.

Proverbs 3:25-26
