Drew's Dad suggested that we start a blog after finding out about Drew's hearing loss. I wasn't one for using the Internet for much more than email or on-line shopping, so I really did not think that I had the technical skills to be able to keep up my own blog.
I agreed to try, and with Drew's Dad's help we started Turn On My Ears!, mainly because I felt a blog would be a great way to keep all of our family and friends up-to-date with Drew's progress. I also thought that a blog could be an excellent resource for other parents on the same journey with us, so Drew's Dad and I have provided a lot of medical research and information pertaining to insurance coverage that we have found helpful and hope that others in our shoes have found helpful too.
I did not know when we began the blog how many friends we would make. The list is too long to mention all of them in one post, but these children and their families have been a great source of inspiration for Drew's Dad and I. I am so thankful of their willingness to share their children with us, and I hope that others find Drew as inspirational as we find their children.
Certainly, not even in my wildest dreams, would I have ever thought that our blog would receive recognition. Check out #74 on the Top 100 Mommy Blog's of 2007.
