“She not only saw a light at the end of the tunnel, she became that light for others.” ~ kobi yamada If you mention “D-day” to most the thoughts of troops storming the beaches of Normandy might enter their minds. But if you ask most parents of a child with spina bifida they likely will […]

Lora - You’re right, D day means something entirely different to some of us. I can not only tell you the date, but all the details of the days Justin was diagnosed with Type one diabetes and then Epilepsy. I will never forget. Both broke my heart.

Blogging for Good for the Spina Bifida Association of Central Florida

“The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway.” ~Mother Teresa I learned earlier this year that the folks leading the Central Florida Blogger Conference would be supporting the Spina Bifida Association of Central Florida in a “blogging for good” initiative they were going to do at this year’s conference.
