Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop


Hello Blogging Friends!!


Welcome to the "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness Inaugural Blog Hop!


Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities.  This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term.  That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!

Here are the Wonderful Sponsors 




We have 19 Wonderful Sponsor and 11 Design Team Members that have partnered with us to bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public!  For details on how you might win any of these prizes please see My Turner Syndrome Journey page.  Thanks for learning about Turner Syndrome.

  7. Lori your cards are beautiful! I love them all and what I love about them is their sentiments, they are so lovely. This hop and your story has brought me the awareness about how pre term babies can have problems that one might not have even heard of. But I also believe that God blesses these special children to the most patient and loving couples, the ones who can give these children the love others can't. I must also say that Jenna, even she's the one chosen by God to get Julie's love. You are such a lovely family and Julie is Amazing! Thank you for creating awareness about something that happens amongst 1/2500 female births. I hope more people get to know about it and more research is done about it too.

    I can SEE your creative HEART in them all.
    Thank You so much for sharing about this genetic disorder and increasing awareness & knowledge. I feel quite overwhelmed at all the associated health issues, the usual lateness of diagnosis and ongoing challenges of balancing the treatments. Julie sounds very special and she is very lucky to have such caring parents dedicated to ensuring the very best for her every step along the way. Thank You being such a wonderful spokesperson for Turner's Syndrome and wishing you a successful Blog Hop.

  47. Absolutely amazing cards, Lori! Wow! Your daughter is beautiful. I received a facebook message last night from my niece who follows my business page, she told me she didn't know about Turner Syndrome until a month ago, when she began babysitting an amazing little girl with the syndrome. She told me she is such a sweet girl... and fierce! Thanks so much for the opportunity to sponsor and participate in the TSA Blog Hop!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Each one of your cards are really amazing. I think many of them could work for several different occassions or maybe for no reason at all. Sometimes that is the best reason to send a card, just to let someone know they are loved. I gathered from your cards that you understand that well! By the way, I don’t have a favorite, I like them all.

  86. Your cards are beautiful, and I love the colors. I learned that Turners Syndrome only affects females, and that it can cause difficulty with math comprehension. I like that many of your cards have butterflies on them, because to me, a butterfly symbolizes new life. That is what I hope the TSF will make possible through spreading awareness of this condition.
