Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie.

I know how empowering it can be to just talk to another mom who can relate to your every day struggles with similar conditions your children have, and thought maybe we would be able to defelop a great friendship together!

My son has been hospitalized three times this last year. I have three other kids and its always a challenge meeting everyone's needs during this time. My blog is Raising Complicated Kids and you can read more about it there. Or email me and we can talk.
