A Message from SpecialMoms Special Needs Parenting Club

I asked Marla Murasko, president and founder of SpecialMoms, to tell us what's special about it, and she wrote: "I wanted to create a 'one-stop' resource community where other like-minded special-needs moms could network and share both their personal and professional lives in one safe environment. It has really opened up the door for new friendships and networking opportunities for these moms, and it only keeps growing. Our newly created forum gives the mothers a place to share their stories, passions and dreams, whether they own a business or may be looking to start one. SpecialMoms has been named one of the Top 50 Mompreneur Blogs to Follow in 2013
and Top 100 Special-Needs Resources on the Web.

I asked 2013 Readers' Choice Awards finalists to pick their favorites in categories other than their own, and Margeret Meder, whose book Uncommon Beauty: Crisis Parenting from Day One
is a finalist for Favorite New Special-Needs Memoir,
picked SpecialMoms. She wrote: "SpecialMoms website is a place that energizes the special mom in me. Each time I visit this site, I find new valuable information. Whether it is information about my child's special needs or information about parenting, I feel a connection to the content and community at SpecialMoms. There are so many resources for improving the things that I currently do: caring for my child, overseeing my child's education, improving the 'mom entrepreneur' in myself, and just getting a daily dose of inspiration. Thank you for this great website that motivates me to keep going."
