I think Lily's story as it impacts our family probably merits its own blog. Certainly I'll still blog my own ridiculousness, and trials and tribulations in my other blog, but it seems like Lily's own struggles are so specific, and require so much background for a casual reader (at least a reader who isn't raising his/her own special needs child) that I want to set it aside and make it "special".
Emma takes center stage in FAR more than her fair share of blog posts, and I suspect that she'll take the stage to share in some of Lily's blog post "glory" here as well, but I think posting autism-specific blogs to a specific site provides a little more utility for me (assuming I wish to look back with any hope of finding something) or anyone who wishes to keep up with her, or just share common experiences.
The first post (after this one) will just be a copy and paste from the larger blog. I thought about doing that with the other autism blogs but decided against it. They're there, and there they'll stay, and I've made my peace with that. I wanted to use "their" in that sentence, just to make it even more awkward, but I'm too lazy to figure out how to work it in properly.
