Preemie Twins Blog

The Preemie Twins Blog is a place of understanding, empathy, and information for parents of multiples and premature babies.

Preemie Twins Blog – Why You Should Go

If you are the parent of multiples or a premature baby, or just know parents of multiples or premature babies, you know that there are definite trials, tribulations, and triumphs that these families and young babies experience. You also know that a strong system of support is one of the only ways to cope, and that often that support, understanding, and information sharing is something that you can only get from people who have lived through the same.

This blog, a highly informative blog for parents of multiple preemies, is at times jubilant and at others heart wrenching, but at all times is a wonderful place for parents experiencing the challenges and triumphs of parenting twins, multiples, and premature babies. The blog is written by a mother who has been through it all, and is contributed to by many others.

Summing Up Preemie Twins Blog

Many preemie twins and multiples are true medical miracles, just as the babies who inspired this blog, Macy and Mallory, are. Still, medical science can only get a parent so far when faced with the challenges and emotions of caring for premature babies. This blog helps to fill the void, lend a hand of support, and educate parents to make the road as smooth as it possibly can be.

Recap Review, April 18 Edition

It’s been a heartening week full of awareness here at Do You Digg It.  It started with an inspiring collection of stories from a young girl with autism, and grew to a theme of its own from there.

Week In Review, April 18, 2009

  • Actually the week started with Easter well-wishes, including an update on Sean Rasmussen’s internet marketing seminars and travels.  Tough to keep up with that one!  Enjoy our belated Easter message, or as the case may be for some of you, consider it timely if you celebrate this week!
  • The official blog review kick off for the week found us at Amy’s Short Stories blog.  Amy is that inspiring, insightful young girl I mentioned who is teaching all of us through her blogging, writing, and outlook on life.  Be sure to stop in and meet this young talent.
  • Amy’s blog led us to several others of similar interest, focusing on increasing the awareness of autism and spectrum disorders, and in supporting and educating others.  The next blog, Beautiful Spectrum, is one of these blogs, a true celebration of the diversity of life.
  • Faces of Autism is an equally informative and compelling blog.  It is just as it sounds, a photoblog celebrating the diversity of life and increasing understanding through photos and artwork.
  • The next site is dedicated to special needs, including a large segment of autism-related works, but has a bit broader topic, too.  5 Minutes for Special Needs is a blog supported by an expert and experienced team of writers dealing with special needs in many forms, and offering both education and support.
  • Our final blog review for the week was a visit back to a blogging friend we reviewed last year, the inspiring Glenda Watson Hyatt.  Glenda is an amazing woman doing amazing things in the face of insurmountable odds given her diagnosis of severe Cerebral Palsy.  It’s hard to maintain a poor mood when Glenda is around!

That rounds out our week here at Do You Digg It.  In case you missed it, here is last week’s Recap Review of all the previous week’s works and reviews.

Glenda Watson Hyatt Still Going Strong

Every time we start talking about exceptional people with special needs and exceptional skills, my mind goes back to Glenda Watson Hyatt of the Do It Myself Blog.  And so, I thought this was a good time to check up on Glenda and what she’s been doing.

Still Glenda

For those of you who are not familiar with Glenda, aka the “Left Thumb Blogger,” take some time to get to know this inspiring woman.  Glenda has cerebral palsy and has been categorized by doctors as being “non-verbal,” but her blog definitely proves otherwise!

I’m happy to report that Glenda is still every bit Glenda, still cracking jokes and working away, putting the rest of us to shame.  She is currently working on her presentation for SOBCon 2009 and taking up the battle of making the internet and social networking sites accessible to people with all types of disabilities, not just those with visual impairments as so often seems to be the case.

Glenda continues to be one of the most inspiring bloggers around.  Revisit this old Digg It favorite for a healthy dose of knowledge and inspiration, and a great many laughs, too!

5 Minutes For Special Needs

Those of us who are not intimately dealing with special needs on a daily basis probably can never really understand all of what life with children with special needs implies. That is the express domain of parents and families with special needs. However, through their first-hand experiences and heart-felt sharing we can get an idea of what that life is like, and come to a higher level of understanding and enlightenment.

5 Minutes For Special Needs – Why You Should Go

5 Minutes for Special Needs is a blog maintained by a team of parents and professionals with first-hand experience with special needs. Their goal in contributing to this blog is to increase understanding of special needs in order to help others understand them better, and in an effort to build a community of support and learning for others in similar circumstances. The experiences of these contributors varies greatly, as there are a great many primary diagnoses involved, and a much longer list of secondary diagnoses and conditions. All in all, theirs is a deep well of life experience and knowledge with much to offer.

Summing Up 5 Minutes for Special Needs

The authors of this blog have built an excellent resource for parents, educators, and the public at large. They do not ask for your sympathy, they ask only that you open your mind and allow them this chance to offer you support, insight, and inspiration, as your need may be. This blog is very much about celebrating life in all its diversity, and helping others to do the same. Take 5 Minutes out of your day to increase your understanding and knowledge of the real meaning of life with special needs.

Getting To Know The Faces Of Autism

Faces of Autism

When you put a face on a condition, it has a way of becoming not only more real, but more understandable as well. That seems to be the foundation of Cadok’s blog, Faces of Autism. She is raising awareness of Autism and Spectrum Disorders by putting real, live, faces in action to the condition for all the world to see.

Faces of Autism – Why You Should Go

Casdok is a UK mother of a 20 year old son with autism, who is also non-verbal. Her contribution to Autism Awareness is her blog, which is a collection of photos and artwork from autistic children and adults around the world, each accompanied by a short description of the subject and his or her likes, interests, abilities, and talents.

Casdok‘s simple blog premise is a highly effective one. These photos and few short worlds tell worlds about the people living with autism and all that they can do. As an outsider many of these faces an abilities might surprise you…the face of autism is not always what you expect it to be; but then, that is the point of the blog, to better educate the rest of us to the realities of autism.

Summing Up Faces of Autism

Casdok has developed a very simple and highly effective way to put a real face on autism (many, actually!). This is a blog that deserves a much wider audience than just those living within the autism community. The real gift of this blog is the potential to educate the rest of us, and so it is us who needs it more than the proud and laudable contributors. Stop by this blog and see for yourself how different autism can look.

Beautiful Spectrum

It seems we’ve just missed World Autism Awareness Day on April 2, however, as the parents of these wonderful children will tell you, every day is a day for raising the consciousness and understanding of this disorder and for getting to know the people who live with it. Inspired by Amy’s Short Stories and some wonderful blog links from that blog, we come now to Beautiful Spectrum.

Beautiful Spectrum – Why You Should Go

Beautiful Spectrum is Halo‘s journal of life with “Twinkle”, her non-verbal autistic daughter. The blog is an insight into the world of autism wherein Halo shares the struggles and the triumphs of life with an autistic child. It is a wonderful resource for outsiders to learn more about autism and the capabilities and special needs of these children and their families.

Summing Up Beautiful Spectrum

Autism is a very difficult disorder for the lay person to understand. And so, these blogs from the children, parents, and families who are courageous enough to share their experiences with the rest of us are a true gift of awareness, insight, and understanding. Come along with Halo and her daughter as they journey throughout this Beautiful Spectrum and add a new level of understanding to your knowledge of autism and related disorders.

Amy’s Short Stories

Amy’s Short Stories is a blog where Amy, a young girl from the United Kingdom, keeps a collection of her own short stories to share for the enjoyment of others.

Amy’s Short Stories – Why You Should Go

A truly impressive young girl, Amy’s stories are full of feeling and creativity, often reflecting her dreams and life on her UK farm. They are entertaining and witty, and inspiring for her sheer dedication and courage in telling them.

Amy’s blog was created with the help of her mother because, in her words,

“My mum is really proud of me and likes to read my stories so she made a blog for me so that other people could read them too. I love other people reading my blog, it makes me very happy.”

This blog, though, stands as much more than the inspired and inspiring writings of a young girl. It also stands as an example of the strength and capabilities of a young girl with autism; yes, Amy is autistic, and her blog also makes a strong statement about autism awareness and understanding.

Summing Up Amy’s Short Stories

Everything about Amy’s Short Stories is inviting; the stories are entertaining, enjoyable reads that speak volumes for the author, who herself is a delightful young lady, a true inspiration to us all. A visit to this blog is sure to warm your heart and put a smile on your face.
