Today’s families are more diverse than ever, and disabled parents are proving that parenthood doesn’t have to fit a certain mold. Unfortunately, many people with disabilities face greater obstacles when starting a family. Read on to learn about some of the biggest challenges disabled couples face and how you can solve them.
Parents with disabilities also have to contend with the big financial questions that all parents face, like how they’ll provide for their child if the worst happens. Every parent should have a life insurance policy and burial policy in place before their child is born. These important financial tools relieve the financial burden on your family if you die unexpectedly. Parents should also write a will to name a guardian for their child. While there are tools to help you write a will for cheap, it’s better to work with a lawyer when your child’s well being is on the line.
Between fertility challenges and financial concerns, sometimes it can feel like parenthood is an impossible goal. However, with the right support and resources, your disability doesn’t need to stand in the way of starting a family.
