Dan, aka Captain Dan and OS Alpha, over at Down with Oz, Oz Squad, and DOWNTOWN has passed the Golden Advocate Award along to me. I am honored that he said such nice things about my blog (and managed to stick to just the positives ;-) Dan is a great writer, father, and advocate, and I am proud to be on his team (which you should join if you haven’t already.)
Not only was Dan kind enough to bestow an award on me, but he also customized it to personally represent me. Does she really look like me? Well, believe it or not, I am not actually that cute, lol. Thanks Dan, you’re the best!
I have to tell you, there are a lot of amazing blogs out there, like Living In Invisible Cities (one of our fancy friends) and Take a Walk on the Happy Side (home of my favorite identical twins). There are also some fantastic disability champions out there like The Accidental Advocate and Welcome to Illinois. So it was hard, really hard to decide what to do with this award.
After ruminating about it for a week or so, I've decided I am giving it to Lisa of Bridget’s Light. Lisa is a gifted writer with a creative streak and a powerful voice for our children. Go spend some time reading around her blog and you will agree. I am thankful that this mother of five makes the time to share her beautiful daughter Bridget as well as her valuable contributions to the ongoing public conversation about disability.
Visit Rejenerations, the home of the Golden Advocate Award, to grab the real version of it... the one without my goofy face on it. There you will also find the specifics about accepting this award and passing it along.
