Since I’ve gotten home from China I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what matters. What really matters. The things that, when our life passes before our eyes, we’ll be glad we took the time and energy to pursue. And I believe that the time you spend writing and sharing your child’s story will not only be a blessing for your child to have in the future, but it will be a blessing to other families now. Families trying to understand and learn more about a need that seems awfully scary on WebMD. Or maybe a family that wants to adopt an older child but has heard one too many horror stories. Or a family that had, until now, thought that the term “special needs” always meant a lifelong debilitation. Your story just might be the reason a child that has had to wait too long might wait no longer… might find their family. How awesome to be part of that??
BUT, in case that’s not enough of a reason, we’re hitting you with the big stuff. We will be giving away one of my very favorite things: a Suzanne Myers name charm necklace. Not only do I adore my necklace, but Suzanne Myers is an incredibly talented and extremely kind person. So if you asked for one for Christmas, or just hoped your husband would develop some spontaneous ESP, but you got a new crock pot instead, be sure to get a piece of this action!!
Entries will be given as follows:
1. For submitting a family story: 5 entries
2. For sharing your SN blog link: 1 entry
3. For putting our button on your site: 2 entries
The new and improved deadline (for real this time, and I mean it!) is February 7. We’ve extended it ‘cuz well, I’m the tiniest bit scattered. And, just in case any of you are equally afflicted, now you’ve got a bit more time to get crackin’ on this… I promise you won’t regret it!
