My Journal - Week 61 (22Oct10)

Parents who Blog... can make a difference too!

I always knew that Blogging was something that anyone could do, and for absolutely any reason whatsoever.  What I never knew was that I would be one of those people who would be part of it too.  After I had Hunter, it was very important to me to make sure that people out there had choices, that they could learn and get the real every day information that was so lacking in the medical industry.  A personal perspective regarding the journey of having or caring for a child with Down syndrome and or Special Needs.  It became my strong focus and somewhat of a mission to show the world exactly the same information I wished I was able to find or learn without half as much trouble.  It was also for Hunter.  I knew after I had Hunter that he deserved a voice.  One that would explain to the world what most everyone else who had not been privy to our journey would want to know and should know.
And, "Welcome To Our House" was born.

Today I received an email - one that I was not expecting.  That is the great thing about surprises.  I was told that I had received an award for 2010, for Blogging.  I had received the accolade for being one of the top 30 Special Needs Blogs Awards.

Here is what the beginning of the email said:

Dear Sandi,

Congratulations! Sarah here, and your blog, Welcome to Our House, was
determined to be one of the best blogs to exude overall brilliance.  And so,
it has received our 2010 Top 30 Parenting Special Needs Blogs Award

I had absolutely no idea that I would ever receive such a great award let alone my followers nominate me for it.  I am very proud and I have posted the badge honourably on my blog.  Here is the site which lists the top 30 winners:

Here is the award that I am able to post on my blog:

I would like to say "Congratulations" to all the other winners and also to encourage everyone out there to blog.  It helps those who are out there wanting information and the reality of our lives that otherwise without blogging, they wouldn't be able to find.
