Sorry that I've been MIA from the blog but all in good around Japolinaville. I'm out of hibernation to tell you about a great TV series and a contest!!!!
BORN THIS WAY chronicles the lives of a group of young adults born with Down syndrome as they pursue their passions while defying society's expectations. The series also follows their parents who share their own journey of joy, sacrifice, and unconditional love. BORN THIS WAY premieres Season 2 next Tuesday, July 26 on A&E Network. I love the show and can't wait to watch the new season. Click here for a sneak peak
A&E has given me a $25 Target Gift card to giveaway. Just nominate an inspirational person in a comment below and the most inspiring person will get the gift card mailed to him. Easy Peasy. Just post before July 25th at midnight E.S.T. I will post on the 26th, the name of the winner.
The most recent person to inspire me is Jen Bricker. If you've never heard of her, google her. She was born in Romania with no legs and when her birth parents saw her, they abandoned her. An American family, Gerald and Sharon Bricker, adopted Jennifer and raised her in a small town in Illinois. Gerald and Sharon did not allow Jen to learn the word can't. When she wanted to become a gymnast, they said "Go for it" and she became a tumbling champ. She was obsessed with the Olympic gymnast,Dominique Moceanu and it turns out that Moceanu was her biological sister. Crazy story. Regardless, the fact that Jen never lets her lack of legs stops her really is a message that many of us need to pay attention to. If she can become a gymnast with no legs, most of us have no excuses.
Inspire me with someone who inspires you. Don't forget, giveaway ends on July 25th! Tell your friends. A $25 gift card to Target is a great prize. Thanks A & E
