Believing Everyone Has a Story

When I began blogging I was seeking to find my place in the online world – to find my voice. Sure I can write, but can’t anyone? When I realized that it wasn’t solely about my joy and ability to write and more about the message behind the words, that’s when my blog started to climb up the ranks of the search engines.

My Words Can Impact the World

When I realized that my words, and stories may help others who are younger than I; and their family better understand life with Cerebral Palsy, that is when I truly began to feel fulfilled personally by what I was doing on my blog. I write with the intent to give insight into my own life, in hopes that it will help others navigate their own journey.

I got lucky in that the niche in which my blog falls into, is relatively small, meaning that there is not a lot of bloggers that write from the perspective of living life with Cerebral Palsy. There is however, a lot of parents who write about life with a child who has Cerebral Palsy, and for that matter a lot of professionals who write about Cerebral Palsy.

But when I started there was only a handful of bloggers who have Cerebral Palsy and write about how life on a day-to-day basis impacts them. I am happy I can fill a void that will in turn hopefully help others better understand Cerebral Palsy, simply by sharing my personal experiences.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.
