We had our tenth and sadly final, T-21 Blog Hop on December 21.  I'd like to thank all those that have participated this month and in months gone past.  Perhaps we will revisit this feature sometime in the future. 

Our Facebook page is well on it's way to reach over 1000 fans! Welcome to all our new friends. Please share!

Don't forget our Facebook Group!  Down Wit Dat - The Group is an all inclusive special needs discussion forum.  Join the conversation!

I'm looking forward to judging December's Photo Theme "Holidays Around the World".  Results to be posted later on Down Wit Dat's Facebook page. January's Theme to be announced at the same time. 

...And that's the news.  Keep the stories and information coming!  See you in 2013!
