Readers' Choice Award Finalist

I am honored that my blog is a finalist in About.com's 2013 Reader's Choice Award for Favorite Special Needs Parenting Blog!

Just in the time for this nomination I've managed to give myself a little blog makeover. Well, just the header. It was time for a new header. It was accomplishment enough for me to tackle how to even create, size, upload, and replace my header. Thanks to a little help from Lucas; he chose the font.

Here are the FAQs on the Readers' Choice Awards. There is no prize for winning ... except a button to put on your blog to say you were the 2013 Readers' Choice Award Winner. I'm honored, and excited, just to be counted among the finalists!

Yes, I'm asking (please!) for your votes now. You can vote once a day, every day, through Mar 17. Winners will be announced Mar 24th. Your votes are most appreciated! You can vote here.

I'm also asking my readers for something else. Each nominated blog in all of the categories will have a page and write-up about their blog. I need to submit 3 of my posts that encompass my blog. I've been blogging since 2006 - seven years now. That's a lot of posts. (1837 to be exact!). I'm not asking you to go back through my blog, but if there are any particular posts that you remember for one reason or another; if there is a post that touched you, or sticks out to you, please let me know! I'm trying to compile a lists of posts from my readers to help me narrow down which 3 posts to submit.

(ok I've been blogging for 7 years, but I'm not blog-savvy enough to figure out how to hyperlink the picture below without the box next to it! But at least the picture is linked, so if you click on it you will go to the voting page.)


Thanks for your support!

I like this post http://mdbeau.blogspot.com/search/label/R-Word

Why you ask? Because you state so wonderfully why that word should be abolished without ever attacking the person misusing it.

Done, Ive given you a vote and when I remember will vote some more.
Fav posts, agree with other reader, that one plus the one about compassion.
But I think for me the most inspiring was the one where you gave Kayla independence in catching the bus and waiting a distance from the bus stop. While it may seem an ordinary post it is in this ordinariness that I was inspired. We dont need to read big inspirational posts to make changes in our lives. That post helped me be aware that I was holding on to my little girl a bit too much and you inspired me to let go and give her more independence :-)
