First, can I just say, Wendy’s friends/followers/supporters are nothing short of AMAZING! As you all know, Wendy is going to be in her first pageant August 25. The pageants Facebook site decided to do a contest and whoever had the most friends like the page and comment the child’s name would get free entry or a prize. This contest started over a week ago (on the 22nd to be exact). I just put it out there for Wendy two days ago! And already she is in second place- with 145 votes and the lead only having 163. So I just had to share a blog to shout out to everyone that has liked the page and shared with your friends! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
And the contest isn’t over. We have until 5:00 to get Wendy in first place!
Acceptance: favorable reception, approval.
We special needs parents crave acceptance for our children. We want them to be welcomed with open arms and treated like any other child, which is one of the reasons I am putting Wendy in a pageant that isn’t just for special needs kids (and yes, there are pageants out there specifically for SN kids). I don’t want Wendy looked upon as being disadvantaged. She is a strong, beautiful baby girl that just happens to be a little different.
