3. If you luuuuvvvvv Hopeful Parents, become a member! All month long, we're giving you one good reason every day to join. Reason No. 27:

You want to create awareness around caregiving.

Let’s face it: you’ve felt someone staring at you while you’ve cared for your child. You’ve wondered what they’re thinking – are they curious or are they judging. Maybe someone’s given you unsolicited advice, even unsolicited and flat-out wrong advice. People need to be more understanding, more sensitive. But it’s not going to happen through the kindness of their hearts. They need to be more informed, better educated. Let’s ban together and spread the word about caregiving for our children. No minority has ever changed society without first coming together. Please join us on this quest.

That's all for today...see you tomorrow! And don't forget to add your link. Let's create some awareness about what it's like to care for a child with special needs!
