We love the chatter we’ve been seeing about our book and website on facebook, e-mail, discussion boards, and blogs. The more you talk about us, the more likely expectant parents in need of information will find us. So please, keep talking! If you would like to see what some people are saying, take a look:
Jennifer Margulis over at the Mothering blog talks about our Stephanie Meredith, both as coauthor of Diagnosis to Delivery and executive director of Lettercase. She also talks about the new prenatal testing on the horizon.
Special Needs Children Editor Pam Wilson of Bellaonline discusses the new resources for parents, including our website and book (which she calls “outstanding!”) and Stephanie’s booklets available through Lettercase.
One Speech and Language Pathologist at the Thomas Center for Down Syndrome in Cincinnatti, blogs that our book is “absolutely outstanding.” She goes on to list a variety of people who should read our book, including medical professionals and students.
Nancy McCrea Iannone’s local newspaper published an informational piece on the book and website.
Gillian Marchenko is spreading the word on the Chicago Special Needs Parents Examiner.
And speaking of parents, they are sharing through their blogs. Here is a sampling:
Our photographer Kelle Hampton (“The individuals who created it passionately put their hearts and souls into something that is beautiful, informative and, I imagine, an incredible guide in navigating the intimidating waters of the first steps of acceptance.”)
Our photographer Conny Wenk (“CONGRATULATIONS, Nancy and Stephanie for putting so much work and effort into this invaluable book!!!)
Bill and Ria (“wonderful, incredible, comprehensive . . ., practical, compassionate, . . . and easy-to-follow”)
Barbara Curtis at Mommy Life
Becca at the Bates Motel (“amazing, long over-due”)
Jess at Raising Joey
Erin at Ski’ing Through Life (with absolutely gorgeous photo of Grady and his dad) (“I wish I had this when I was pregnant.”)
Jennie at A Little Something Extra for Us (“FABULOUS”)
Qadoshyah at Got Down Syndrome (with some extra cute Kelle Hampton and Conny Wenk photos)
Our friends on the other side of the world are also talking. Keeping Up with Down Syndrome is a blog for the Down syndrome group in New South Wales, Australia. (Even if many parts are not relevant outside of the U.S., it is still “good, well researched information.”)
Keep the conversation flowing! And bring some of it to our blog – our expectant parents could benefit from a variety of perspectives.
