Blogging for Awareness, Day 8

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday. This post is going up late today -- with many apologies. I spilled soup on my computer, and now it's broken. Couldn't get to another one until now. For those participating in Mr. Linky, sorry for the delay, and post away!

All month long, Hopeful Parents is celebrating National Family Caregivers Month and National Blog Posting Month. Celebrating is as easy as 1-2-3:

1. If you blog about your child with special needs, include your post for the day below. More details about Hopeful Parents Blogging for Awareness are here.

2. If you like Hopeful Parents, let everyone know by "liking" us on Facebook! Click on the "Like" button on our sidebar, or visit our Facebook profile. We're trying to get to 5,000 likes by the end of the month...

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. 8:

You want to help struggling parents.

In many situations, all the money in the world wouldn't be able to solve the problem. What's left is the support and caring we show each other. By becoming a member of Hopeful Parents, you'll help us build programs that will reach out to parents who need to feel less alone, less scared, less overwhelmed, less angry. You'll help us build programs that will remind all of us to take better care of ourselves so that we can be the best for our kids. So often, we parents are the "silent soldiers," and so often, we need care as well.

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!
