October was Spina Bifida Awareness month. On day 1 I did a call for questions about Spina Bifida and boy did you deliver! I received so many questions here on my blog and on YouTube that I ended up doing SIX response videos throughout the month divided into categories. I’m very pleased with how it turned out and the incredible response I’ve gotten so far.
It’s been a hectic month but what’s new. My son is now 16 months old and doing well thanks for asking lol.

Without further adieu, here are videos I put together to answer your questions while raising awareness of this extremely common birth defect:
In Video 1 I covered what exactly is Spina Bifida, the different types and what type my son has.
In Video 2 I covered all your questions about development.
In Video 3 I answered your questions about surgery.
In Video 4 I talked about cause and prevention.
In Video 5 I spoke about awareness and gave advice to parents of children with Spina Bifida (or special needs in general).
In Video 6 I wrapped up the series by covering questions about myself, our routine and my marriage.
For even more background watch My Testimony Video from earlier this year. Feel free to share this blog post and videos as much as you want, even after October.
Thank you for your curiosity, questions and kind words in support of this series. Flickerbug & I thank you.
