The NYMetroParents blogroll features the best blogs in the parenting world, from New York and beyond. Here's a closer look at why we love these mom bloggers and dad bloggers and how they're shaping the web for parenting today.

Blogging From: Manhattan

"Being a special needs parent changes you, it can change you for the better, it all depends on you,” reads Marianne Russo's blog, The Life Unexpected.

Her blog has teeth, yet expresses sympathy. It speaks of the times she felt empowered and of the times she felt weakness. It lets you know what Marianne is thinking, how she is handling each new scenario that comes her way, and how the world is changing in favor for and against the special needs community. As you read, her fears become your fears, her excitement becomes your excitement, and in the end, you find yourself more informed and more connected than you ever were before. Her beautiful writing makes each word dig into your heart like a stent during an angioplasty—she helps you shove all the dirt aside and get you back on your feet.

Between her and the professionals she conducts interviews with, you can find help, guidance, and solace in knowing that you are not only special needs parent out there.    Also listen to Marianna on “The Coffee Klatch: Special Needs Talk Radio.” — Holly Tucker
