First of all, I wanted to take a second and thank you all for your encouragement, support and prayers this week. When I wrote about Rowan's delays, his upcoming evaluation, and my fears, I was not expecting that outpouring of love. The thing I loved most, were the comments and emails from moms who have been there, or are currently in the same boat. I don't think its healthy to parent on an island... and traveling down the road of special needs parenting makes it even more urgent for us to reach out and encourage each other. So, thanks for doing that and offering solidarity. I'm so grateful.
I consume a lot of media during the week. Blogs, news articles, videos, photos, editorials... you name it. Some of it is crap, but some of it is awesome and worth sharing. I'm gonna try to share some of those on Saturdays. It's a nice way to round out the week. In the comments, I'd LOVE to hear what you found interesting during the week... so we'll share with each other, ok?
