Change can be hard, but when you hear why the Dream Team Link Share says farewell this Tuesday, I think you'll understand.

The Dream Team Link Share says farewell this Tuesday after a five year run. It feels a little weird to me. If you’re a regular Different Dream reader, it may feel weird to you, too. I have loved connecting with special needs bloggers who contributed links over the years. Reading their posts has been a delight and sharing them and their resources has been my passion.

Different Dream is ending the link share for a number of reasons. First, the link share provider changed their format. They now require all link share contributors, not just link share hosts like this website, to register and provide a great deal of personal information. I don’t feel comfortable with that arrangement. My virtual assistant engaged in numerous conversations with the provider trying to rectify the situation, but to no avail.

Second, since the release of Sharing Love Abundantly in Special Needs Families: The 5 Love Languages® for Parents Raising Children with Disabilities, God has been nudging me to re-evaluate priorities and focus my time. Those priorities include speaking engagements and publicity related to Sharing Love Abundantly. They also include writing a cozy mystery with a caregiving twist. (More on that next week!)

Now you know why the Dream Team Link Share says farewell this Tuesday. Between my shifting priorities and the provider changes, ending the link share was almost a no brainer. I am embracing both with gusto and hope you will, too. Would you also join me in saying thank you to all the special needs bloggers who contributed to the link share during the last five years? Thanks to all of you for what you do for the disability and special needs community and may you do so for years to come!
