Bee-lieve in our Families

Our Family-to-Family Resource Network is a finalist in the Reader's Choice Awards for Best Online Special Needs Support Community and we need YOUR help to win! You can vote every 24-hours until March 19th. Check out our profile page HERE


This is a great honor to even be nominated considering the small percentage of the special needs community that we represent. Hydranencephaly affects approximately one in 10,000 births across the globe. It is an even more rare occurance in the US with only 1 in 250,000 new parents faced with this rare neurological condition for their child.

I personally have been a part of several support groups for various reasons and the families that have networked through the GHF family support group are by far the most supportive, knowledgeable, sincere, and loving individuals I have ever not met. I have had the opportunity to meet a few families and the persona is not simply an online alternate personality... it's true to life.

The opportunity to raise further awareness and shine a spotlight on the families we represent is one of our mission's goals. Feel free to share the link to vote with your own family & friends. It only takes a few seconds of your time and the greater exposure will give us the opportunity, as a community, to reach out to more families and help empower them to provide their children with the best quality of life possible.

Vote now... and every day until March 19th: http://specialchildren.about.com/b/2013/02/19/vote-for-favorite-special-needs-online-community-2.htm
