About.com Announces Memoir Finalists - Vote Now!

I have exciting news to share this morning!

About.com has announced the 2013 finalists for Favorite New Special-Needs Memoir in their 2013 Reader's Choice Awards.  

Uncommon Beauty:  Crisis Parenting from Day One has been included as one of the five finalists!  Thank you to About.com for including Uncommon Beauty among your finalists.

The announcement reads, "The five finalists for Favorite New Special-Needs Memoir for the About.com Readers' Choice Awards tell stories about life with Asperger syndrome, autism, behavioral issues, and special healthcare needs.  With faith, humor, and hope, they provide encouragement and insight for those facing the same challenges."

For me personally, this is an opportunity to increase awareness of the issues surrounding Apert Syndrome and the families who care for children with special healthcare needs.

You can vote once a day every day between now and March 19.  Winners will be announced on March 27.

Tauri Mauro's Parenting Children with Special Needs Forum on About.com offers an abundance of resources.  I hope that you will visit her site to learn more and vote daily.

Other categories include:  
  • Favorite Special-Needs Parenting Blog
  • Favorite Special-Needs Online Community
  • Favorite New Special-Needs Parenting Book
  • Favorite New Special-Needs Children's Book
  • Favorite Special-Needs Twitter Feed
  • Favorite Special-Needs App

Congratulations to all the finalists this year.
