I’m speaking on my local NPR affiliate on Monday about the Born Just Right community. I’m proud of the relationships we’ve built and touched by the number of people who reach out and want to connect. I plan to talk a bit about my vision after attending SXSW. If you’re really curious, the audio from the session is now available on my session’s SXSW web page.
In honor of all of you and the fabulous developments that are emerging from our SXSW panel… I’m giving away a signed book written by my panelist, Robert Rummel-Hudson. Schuyler’s Monsters is an honest look at how Robert grew into the advocate he is today. He doesn’t shy away from his feelings and experiences as his daughter was diagnosed with a brain condition that prevents her from being able to speak. I love the book very much and I know you will too.
So here’s all you have to do. For the next week, all you need to do is leave a comment on this post and share a book you love. It doesn’t have to be about special needs… But that would be awesome if it was. I’d love to see new resources and perspectives. I love Robert’s raw views. I feel very lucky to be friends with him… even if he’s AMAZING at jumping into controversial conversations online. He can raise ire. I think it’s because he’s honest. I like honesty.
Leave a comment and I’ll put you into a drawing for Robert’s book. I will pick randomly from the list of commenters on March 31st.
Also one thing… I’ve added a ChipIn box on the right hand side of this site. I’m asking for any possible donations to help keep Born Just Right running. I’ve spent so much running out of my pocket this site… Especially recently. I’ve purchased multiple server accounts after this site got hacked a couple of weeks ago. The hacker will never get close to this site again!! A number of my friends who are also readers here encouraged me to at least ask. So, that’s what I am doing. I will be sure to send you a photo of Jordan or a picture she drew as a thank you! Thank you for your consideration. (And also please know that I’m working through the steps it takes to build a non-profit. Some day soon your donations will also mean you get non-profit credit!)
