So, I have totally not been keeping up with this blog, and I've actually had thoughts recently of just scrapping it all and maybe starting over fresh (possibly using Tumblr because I've come to like it more than Blogger)... but, for now, I wanted to go ahead and post this on behalf of a friend of mine...
One of the greatest things to come out of this blog is the fellow twin parents that I have become friends with. It may just be over Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc., but even if I haven't met them in person (at least yet), I can't help but feel that I know them so well through all the posts, stories, pictures, videos, etc. that they share.
This is for one of those friends.
Jennifer (yes, another Jennifer :-p) has twin girls and, both are exceptionally sweet with beautiful smiles. However, one of them, Emily, also has many special needs. This is a fundraiser Jennifer has started in order to find a way to help Emily communicate, not only with her Mommy, but the rest of the world. You can read more below, but please consider giving even just a little to help out this amazing family!
A note from Jennifer, Emily's Mommy:
|My sweet Emily is special in many ways because she has cerebral palsy, cortical vision impairment (blind) and epilepsy. Many therapist and doctors have given up on her but we refuse. We need a way for her to communicate with us. I am wanting to raise money to buy an iPad that she can work with for communication. Her speech therapist is willing to work with her and her iPad but we need the equipment first. We are looking at an iPad2 for 599.00 and the app Proloquo2go which is 200.00, so we need to raise $800.00!|
Can you please give at least a dollar? We thank you and she does too!
