About Me

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!

E-Cards and Coloring Sheets!

For years I have been talking about developing a variety of cards for amputee related celebrations. Between the date of the amputation, commonly referred to as an "Ampuversary" and the first use of a prosthesis (respectively known as Walking Day and/ or High Five Day), amputees have reasons to celebrate each year. Of course, with such a niche market it is impossible to find any cards to adequately honor these important occasions. Lacking any other options, I finally decided to just go ahead with my ideas by developing a series of e-cards.

Dave and I uploaded the cards yesterday to the new Community section of our webpage (www.ampdpod.com). Available for digital download, please feel free to email them to your friends/ family members to mark their special dates. The cards that are currently available are only the first in a series, so stay tuned for more designs!  If you have any other occasions you would like to commemorate, please email me and let me know.  We want the resources on our webpage to address the needs of our readers and friends.

Since we were tweaking the website and adding new resources, we also decided that it was time to unveil our new coloring sheets for kids. Featuring kids (and an adorable puppy) playing while wearing a variety of prosthetic devices, these coloring sheets are perfect for talking with school or scouting groups. We also think that our coloring sheets would be a nice addition to the waiting rooms in prosthetic offices. Feel free to download and print as many as you need. If you want to send us photos of the finished masterpieces, we'd love to see them. 

Our new website has been a true labor of love. I'm finding myself energized as we are able to bring our ideas to light after so many years of talking and dreaming. The e-cards and coloring sheets are just the beginning. Stay tuned!

Visit our website to see them all!

More available on our website.  Don't forget to send us a photo of the masterpiece!

Circling back to yesterday's blog.  Robby passed his test!  We now have a high yellow belt in the family.
