Thanks Ellen. I linked to a post about trying one's bestReplyDelete
Thanks, Ellen. Dexter is at #8, this week. He has now had his first day of preschool! What a day. Happy weekend.ReplyDelete
As always, thank you Ellen for giving me the opportunity to share. My post this week is about my daughters graduation from Reception class. Oh, and by the way, I LOVED the recent post on Max's singing!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the link-up. It's been a while since I have even posted on my blog, so it's been a while since I have linked-up on here. My link-up (We Are The Brothers B-) is to a post about the struggles we are having with our youngest (as yet undiagnosed with anything) son and his eating habits. He is on yet another food strike and it has us concerned. This time, more than any, I would greatly appreciate people reading my blog post and offering feedback, because we are at a loss as to what to do. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Thanks for keeping us connected, Ellen!ReplyDelete

The New Yorker is running a piece the successful hunt for our son Bertrand's disorder.
Two years ago, he was the 1st patient. Now we're up to SIXTEEN!
Many of the older patients were misdiagnosed as CP.
We're looking to ID more patients for a promising clinical trial.
Would love any help we can get with growing our community! Thanks!
Cristina, I have a rare afternoon to myself and am sitting at a NYC outdoor cafe , alone, with a pile of New Yorkers. I just started reading the article, then took a break and saw this! So glad you posted it and SO glad for all the awareness the article will bring. I will spread the good word. (Hugs)Delete
Thank you so much, Ellen! We're feeling the love. :) It's been a great opportunity to "pay it forward" and help other families hunting for a diagnosis. Sending hugs right back to you, Dave, and the kiddos!Delete
Thanks again for the link up! I blogged in # 29 about sensory integration and our journey in discovering sensory strategies for our daughter.ReplyDelete
Whew, my first post in about 2 months!!ReplyDelete
My post at number 36 is actually about my reaction to reading the New Yorker article on Bertrand and his family's search for a diagnosis.ReplyDelete
Hi! Just saw that someone linked my blog here (#14 Special Needs Spotlight). The name of my blog is actually This Little Miggy Stayed Home and I blog about a lot of things, including my daughter with limb differences. Each week I also spotlight another family and their child with various needs. Would love to have any (or all of you) pop over and check it out! Contact me if you're interested in participating in the spotlight. thislittlemiggy at gmail dot com.ReplyDelete
My link is number 40 "A Day In My Life". One year after my term as Ms Wheelchair America came to a close. I share what life is like for me as a 26 year old with CP. Thanks everyone for reading and sharingReplyDelete
Short post but an important one so we can remember our lost advocates.ReplyDelete
I was reading your post at Huffington on ,'you are an inspiration.......' .I just wanted to say thankyou for writing what you did. My daughter Elysha has down syndrome and is hearing impaired. She is 21 and through the years I have met and read about many inspirational people. Their stories have helped me at times to help Elysha reach much higher than we were told was possible. Sometimes people get so wrapped up in political correctness and being so careful not to say 'the wrong thing' they forget that the inspiration is what helps many on the journey to get there. I read your article thinking yes, you are so right. Thank youReplyDelete
Hi Ellen, I forgot to write the title of the post so entering the link the second time. would you be kind enough to delete the first link. thanksReplyDelete
Hi, everyone -ReplyDelete
#54 -- On Say Hello, Yellow! this week I introduce the project "Humans of New York" and one of those humans who recently struck me deeper than any others that I've seen. This lead me to asking one big question: If we value everyone's contributions, doesn't it follow that we become a more productive society?
