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. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
My son was born with a rare genetic disorder and I was told that A: he wouldn't survive the pregnancy, B: If he did he would die shortly after, or C: if by some MIRACLE he lived, he would have no quality of life. Today, he is 7 years old and you wouldn't know anything was wrong with him unless I told you. Faith and Hope goes a LONG way!! I added your blog to those that I read. I will be thinking of you and Hannah often! Everytime my son gets sick, I freak out cuz anything can go wrong at any time and I could lose him, and there is nothing I can do to stop it - it's a hard reality to live with. I also have a son with ADHD and another with a cyst in his brain along with a bunch of other stuff going on.

I don't have a ton of people following me (a couple of hundred or so) but many of them now subscribe to my blog/follow my blog because of my tweets.
I also participate in the Girls Night Out events from time to time -- this is a good way to meet other women bloggers and introduce them to my blog.
Blessings to you and your gorgeous family in 2009. I took a moment to peak at your blog because I am always interested in other special kiddos & moms. My son's dx took us over 5 years to get right. My heart is with you & yours. I look forward to following your blog!
