Welcome to kidz!

Welcome! This is a site that celebrates the lives and lessons of special needs children, a.k.a. kidz. This is a site for everyone, not just friends and families of kidz. Our mission is to increase awareness and understanding about different health conditions and to help all people cope with challenges and enjoy life!

Most of our posts will be inspired by our readers, so it is important that everyone participates! Please leave comments galore!

Here's how it works:
  1. Meet the kidz behind kidz. They are our inspiration. A new story will be posted at least once a week. To find their stories, click here.
  2. Follow us and let people know you support kidz. Add yourself to our list of followers on the left sidebar. Add us to your blog list. Then let others know you're a kidz supporter by adding this button to your sidebar.

    Just copy & paste the following code into your blog or website (be sure to scroll all the way down to get the whole code

  3. Check in often and participate! We LOVE comments. Leaving a comment on what you learned from the spotlighted child, or by sharing ideas or resources you have is the best way to show support! Feel free to leave the link to a post you'd like to share, either on a comment or by emailing us (email address below). Your post can be about anything that is inspiring: a funny story, an uplifting thought, a beautiful photo, a special memory, a fun activity idea, a cute craft, etc.
  4. Email us. If you have a story, a resource, an idea, or a thought you would like to be featured, email We love emails almost as much as comments, so please - send an email! We like to feature those who support kidz often, so be sure to leave comments.
  5. Subscribe. Enter your email address under the Subscribe title on the lower right sidebar. Once you do this, you will be notified every time there is a new post. This is a great way to keep up-to-date. Every time you get an email you will be reminded it's time to get inspired and leave a comment to inspire others!
  6. Meet the Kidz Krew. The 'Kidz Krew' is a group of mothers who have special needs children and do frequent posts on this blog. You can meet them by checking out their photos on the right sidebar. Just click on their photo(s) and you will be taken to their personal blogs to 'meet' them! They are all incredible people and it's worth your time to get to know them.

Okay, now you're all set. Click here to get started!

Thanks for visiting my blog. What an inspiration blog you have....You are a beautiful person and so is your little one. God Bless you! OMG, the Christmas song that is playing as I am typing is my FAVORITE and I know God sent me to your blog when he did cause I can just feel his presence. I can listen to this ALL day. I can't remember the name of it, but it's a kids choir and it sounds like Canon in D. I am late for work but who cares? I just have to stick around til the end of the song....I will tune in again on my lunch hour....

This is an amazing and inspiring site. I have never given birth but Have adopted 3 of my six children and am in the process of adopting two more. The sixth is a miracle we are just waiting for. I did grow up though with a Sister who has diabilities and who has enriched my families life. I wish my Mother had had a place to turn to through the trying times if even to see that she was not alone.
Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!
