Mom It Forward – Changing the World One Mom at a Time

Every Tuesday night #gno (Girls Night Out) hosts Twitter parties where women from all over the world join into on a topic of conversation right from their computer keyboards.

Even after the actual party was over, women would still hang out tweeting under the #gno hashtag, talking, sharing and making new friends.

In her desire to take the discussion beyond the 140 characters allowed by Twitter, #gno founder, Jyl Johnson Pattee, decided to create the Mom It Forward Forum.

Mom it Forward has become a powerful force in Social Media, making a difference in the lives of women the world around.

Barb Likos is the wizard behind the actual Mom It Forward forums.  And it is to her that I owe thanks for the opportunity to be a part of this amazing new community of Moms as a behind the scenes moderator.

Barb, herself the parent of a son with special needs, understands how impossible it would be for me to work out side of the home right now. She offered me an a job that I can not only do  in my jammies at 2:00 a.m. while watching a very sick Brave Hero sleep, but one I can even perform during hospital stays like the one we have coming up next month.

I’ll forever be grateful.

As a moderator, I get to read a lot of posts.  Which in turn has given me much to think about, new ideas I want to try and new friends to get to know.

There’s even a place for those of us who parent kids with special needs.

I could really use your help in making this spot hop! Come and ask questions. Share your day to day.  Get to know others in this club of ours!

Please, come on over……register……and be a part of the conversation.  It’s a great opportunity to share the often unique perspective that only a parent of a child with special needs can provide.
