How To Go Viral

Okay, I don't really know or want to know how to go viral. I was just hoping to get your attention. I like my little blog. It's comfortable and homey. I know most of my visitors and they are called friends. My followers follow me because they want to. When a new one comes along it's easy to get to know them. I'm content here.

The only reason I would want to grow in popularity is to reach more people. So many people need to be educated, not only about Down syndrome but about what the hell is going on to our sweets who are wasting away in orphanages and institutions. WP may have me soon, but this blog is sacred to me and will always be here just as it is.

I feel like I need a place to stir the pot, so to speak. To reach people and bring them out of their comfort zone. To make them squirm. Too many people are turning the other way.They don't want to hear that children like Emmie are left in cribs all day. That no one cares about them. It's uncomfortable for people to hear, because once you know the truth, how in the hell can you walk away! and if you do,you then become no better than the ones you are, tsk tsking! Or they say "Oh that's terrible, someone should do something" Yes someone should do something, and once you know about them, guess what, YOU ARE THAT SOMEONE! Peter has been pushing me for quite some time. And believe me recent activities in blogland have helped me decide that I may be ready.

When I'm up and running I do hope you will join me . I'd hate to start all alone. I need my peeps!!

Meanwhile, this is the stuff that should go viral! Amazing family!! Please watch

Steph- I LOVE YOUR HEART. Seriously, girl, you inspire me. And the thing I love most about you is you are a doer. You take your faith and let it cause you to do great things, not just talk about them. You have gone viral, you just don't know it!

I hear you! I've been feeling pulled to step forward for one of those beautiful children, too. It's a little scary since my own little guy with DS is only 9 months old... but as soon as I can convince my husband, we're going to start down the path! Thanks for sharing the news story/video too. Amazing doesn't even begin to cover it.
