Summer Blog Hop Series: A Letter


Please Share


This week in the 3rd Annual Summer Blog Hop series aimed at creating community and sharing voices between the disability and disability-ally (- parents, friends, etc) segments in our shared tangerine of life.


The Blog Hop is a space where you can drop the URL link to a post you have written either on your own blog or another site. It can be based on the optional writing prompts (- a list of which is linked here), or not.

The Hop is open for two weeks, which means you can drop your link at any point in that time.

The Writing Prompt

The writing prompts are optional, but if you follow them, they will carry us all through a narrative arc and we’ll be able to collect all of our posts at the end of summer and potentially publish them.

The prompt for this week is:

A Letter to My Younger Self

– reaching back in time, what would you say to a younger you? If you have a disability, would it be something along the lines of what to expect in life? How things work out? If you don’t have a disability, would it be talking to the you from the moment you received the news that your child has a disability? The you that perhaps felt a great deal of sadness, that wanted to run away or drive off a cliff?

What would you say to yourself, knowing what you do now?
