I was honoured to have been nominated in this prestigious blogging award.
I was touched when many parents and support groups began voting and spreading the word.
The morning after the voting closed I am flabberghasted to say the least. For Downs Side Up was voted 8th in the Top 25 European Blogs. Yes, we are inside the Top 10 even. I've had an email saying I'm a winner.
I am even slightly embarrassed because I am among some very very experienced and renound writers whom I consider to be my inspiration. Likewise some utterly amazing blogs didn't make it into the Top 25 where they belonged. I was voting for them daily.
So, here is a massive thank you to each and every one of you that took the time to cast a vote in my direction.
Together we are helping to gently change perceptions of Down's Syndrome from within hearts. Together we are showing the world that our children are amazing.
