About Me

My photo
I am a below knee amputee. More importantly, I am also Mommy to two boys, a very active 10 year old (Robby) and an mischievous toddler (Timmy). I have learned that being a parent with a disability can create some unusual and sometimes humorous situations. This blogger is available for hire! Let's talk and learn how a blog can expand your business.

I'm Not Going...

I have received a lot of emails recently asking about my attending the ACA Conference later this week. I, like many amputees around the country, look forward to this event throughout the year. In the past I have been able to attend by working at the Ossur booth. This year I will be neither in the booth nor attending the conference.

I would be lying if I didn't admit that I'm disappointed to be missing the conference. This conference is, without a doubt, my favorite event to work. I relish meeting new amputees and exchanging stories and ideas. The idea for this blog was born at the ACA conference in 2008!

During past conferences I have met so many new people and I will miss all of them, especially the AmputeeMommy friends who said they will look for me. I feel bad that I won't be there to give them all hugs and a personal thank-you (along with a cookie or two) for supporting my blog, but I am certain to meet all of you at another events.

I know that participants will have a fantastic time, meet new people, and learn a lot! If you are so inclined, I would appreciate your spreading the word about this blog to other attendees.


  1. I'm sorry you won't be here. I hoped to meet you! Or was it the cookie I was looking forward to? Nonetheless, I am looking forward to going. It's in my home town - makes it easy. I'll be sure to share your blog if you'll plug mine.

    Prosthetic parity... definitely a good cause! Would love help anyway I can!
