By now, you should be well aware of the devastation that occurred in Haiti last week from the massive earthquake that shook the small country. Across the globe communities are pooling resources in a massive effort to bring relief to the millions in need. For those of you in the New York area, one such effort is taking place this Thursday, January 21 in Brooklyn. Read More
The sense of urgency for the help needed in Haiti is very self-evident. Time is of the essence. I think the general consensus among the compassionate, is that you need to do something, or you need to do more.

    We all know there is no such thing as normal - but this new book which explores what it's like to be the parent of a disabled child makes me realize that there are so many different ways to be a family, yet the 'system' only really recognizes one. 'My Baby Rides the Short Bus' is a book that deserves a wide audience.
