StoryCorps & The Meridian Library

StoryCorps & The Meridian Library

As 2019 comes to an end Iโ€™m excited to share this amazing opportunity I (Joaquinโ€™s mom) had this year, itโ€™s something Iโ€™m most proud of and was completely unexpected! Growing up I loved books and when I found out I was pregnant with Joaquin I hoped heโ€™d share that love and Iโ€™m so amazed and lucky that he does! So when the @meridianlibrary recognized his love of books through his Instagram account and asked me (as 1 of 15 in the community ๐Ÿคฏ) to share his story with StoryCorps, share what books mean to him, and share how the library has had an impact on our family I was just blown away. Never did I think my voice would be archived in the Library of Congress and the Benson Collection for Latinx voices in Austin, TX. Never did I think I would have such an amazing way to raise awareness for Emanuel Syndrome ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ.

I thought hard on who would be the best person to help me share Joaquinโ€™s story with StoryCorps and really there was just one person, Rachel from @thesensoryproject208 โค๏ธ. Rachel is truly passionate about helping families, sheโ€™s so supportive of our family, and she has been so kind & sweet whenever she gets the opportunity to work with Joaquin. Sheโ€™s an important person in his journey and I canโ€™t thank her enough for the FABULOUS job she did interviewing me ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ. 
Thank you @meridianlibrary ๐Ÿ“š & thank you Rachel @thesensoryproject208 ๐Ÿ–ค
