In November Mumsnet started an awareness campaign for mums whose children have special needs, titled #Thisismychild . Its a good way to get parents together, to discuss their difficulties they have or to just interact with other parents who are going through similar circumstances. Hosting Novembers issue was Hayley Goleniowska from Downs Side Up.
Hayley set up her blog to talk openly and to offer positive advice for parents whose children have been diagnosed with Downs Syndrome, as her own daughter has been diagnosed with this. Raising awareness is not an easy thing to do and does take up a lot of time and is even harder when you have a family. Hayley has done a fabulous job of bringing the stigma away from Downs Syndrome, winning many Blogging Awards and to also have been named Mencap Mumbassador
A huge thank you to the lovely Hayley for featuring my families story on #thisismychild , in the hope that FACS awareness will continue to spread. To read other mummy bloggers and their stories , click on the link below :
