Good News/Bad News

I want to thank all of my wonderful followers and kind strangers who have happened upon my blog and provided support and encouragement. I am pleased to report that my book proposal may soon be made into a book!  Therefore, based on the advice of the literary agent, and due to publisher’s requirements, I have been asked to temporarily suspend my blog.  I will be spending my time polishing my manuscript! If you check back from time to time, I will keep you updated.  (Wish me luck…)

    I have rarely known anyone who “walks the walk” with as much personal commitment as you. It would be enough for most folks to “give” while on the job 9-5, but you have made this your life’s work 24-7. Children with the challenges of the magnitude that yours have faced far too often slip through the hands of most conventional service providers; or worse yet are completely invisible. Your blog shares a very intimate opportunity to bear witness to the reality of a “day in the life” that is indisputably authentic. Your book deserves to be published!!

  22. Good luck!!! 🙂

    How wonderful that the publishing world may be giving you an opportunity to share your stories with a wider audience. Your own particular brand of empathy, humor and life experience will surely give you all the tools you need to polish your book to a shiny sparkling gem!

    Best of luck to you during the process. We’ll be looking forward to your updates, and even though we’ll miss your posts, it’s heartwarming to know that we may be seeing you in print some day. Congrats to you!

  24. Kirsten Lesko said:

    CONGRATULATIONS! I never had a second of doubt that you would be published soon. I can’t wait to buy this book!

    We’ll all be here when you come back – I’ve subscribed to you in my Google Reader, so I’ll know as soon as you post again.

    Good luck!

    Lindsey, you have always been an amazing woman…..good luck with getting this book in print! I’m waiting for the read.

  39. Well dear friend, (who I feel I know even though I’ve only read your blog.) I’ve been telling you s that you could write a whopper of a book! I know you have written about manyof the trials and tribulations of life in your family. You have handled each and every ‘trial’ with patience and knowledge of the best course of action. Your personal knowledge of all the available services including educational, medical-psychological and legal all of which you are expert at maneuvering , have given the children a head start on life that they would never have known in any other living situation. You have provided every tool and opportunity available to ensure that they will have the best possible start in their adult lives.

    I have always maintained that you will go straight to heaven and have the best possible afterlife which you will truly deserve. You have impressed me day after day from the first time I found your blog, and I bow to you.

  40. Hi,
