Many of you will have read Nathan’s blog for the Disabled Children’s Partnership and recently I was on their website and was surprised, no shocked, to see that 43% of people say they don’t know anyone with a disability.

Just over a year ago I wrote this: http://heartlog.tumblr.com/post/155440969720/im-part-of-the-first-generation-with-half-a-heart The completely unexpected response to it is what lead me to begin to take blogging seriously (well, as seriously as I can take it!

One of my biggest delights about finally taking blogging seriously is the way this blog has been embraced by my kids, with them both being eager to contribute. I am especially pleased with the response from Cerys. Nathan has always been our academic one – enjoying researching and writing up his assignments and writing articles… Continue reading Broomstick making at Brockhampton
As the mother of disabled kids I am very used to organising and preparing for the near future. I seem to spend a lot of time working out care rotas 2 weeks in advance and preparing for appointments and following up on anything raised during them.
