My First Blog Give-a-way

I noticed today that my last post was post #31 for October! Cool! Since there are only a few more days until the end of October, I thought I'd celebrate a successful month by treating myself to a book I have been eager to read, Road Map to Holland: How I Found My Way Through My Son's First Two Years With Down Syndrome by Jennifer Graf Groneberg. I have been following Jennifer's blog, Pinwheels, for a couple of years and I just love her writing. To share the celebration, I'm going to give a copy to one of my readers, too!

Leave a comment on this post to enter the drawing and on Oct 31, Sean will draw a winner!

Maybe now I can finally find out who it is in Pakistan that reads my blog every day.

Heheh, I don't know who it is in Pakistan, but if you were wondering about England, I'm the one! ;) You're my hero, especially with your breastfeeding stories (I'd love to manage to breastfeed the little one we'll be adopting.)

Hi from Pakistan!
I am here in Lahore as a missionary working with children, expecially those with extra needs. There is very little in the way of services here and almost no help for parents. I enjoy reading the various blogs so get some idea of things I might do or say to help. Also, since we have now been here two years, I am rather homesick at the moment and I get to imagine myself back in the US again for a few minutes. I wish you all the best.

WOW! This is almost uncanny...My husband and I have been considering adopting a child with Down syndrome and I just today learned of this book and said I MUST get it and read it. I actually linked to your giveaway from Jennifer Graf Groneberg's blog...I've started to read through it and have added it to my reader. Please add my name to the hat!

Peace and blessings!

Oh, I'd love a copy! I am a mom 'fairly' new to this wonderful world of Downs - my little one will be 2 soon. I always enjoy reading other's perspectives, triumphs, heartaches, and joys.
