The time I tried to get us on a magazine cover
The Internet is a strange place. You can throw all kinds of ideas out there and you never know what might stick. In the last week, I had an opportunity to pitch the idea of putting a kid with a limb difference into the front cover of a national parenting magazine.
It all started a few weeks ago when I noticed Parents Magazine was asking parents to share photos of their children for a cover magazine contest. I chose one of my recent pictures of Jordan in her dance recital outfit and didn't think much about it.
That was until a week ago when Parents Magazine notified me that Jordan's photo was chosen to be part of a voting contest where the winner can be put into the running to be in a magazine cover. Imagine that... A limb different kid on the front page of a national magazine. It sounds amazing.
I told Jordan about the opportunity and she thought it sounded super cool. So, I created an easy to remember link and shared it with the photo on Facebook:
Crazy idea, right? Well maybe it is. But, even if we don't move into the next round, this big push has been really incredible to watch. More than 40,000 people have seen this photo on Facebook. Thanks to everyone who have helped in this effort. It's been fun and I've loved having a chance to meet even more people who care about limb differences through this effort.
