Hi Lady Bear! My name is Karl Schonborn and I really enjoy reading your blog posts. To be released in October, my coming-of-age memoir, Cleft Heart: Chasing Normal shares my experience as a young man bullied for unintelligible speech. Despite overcoming my disability in a startling way, I have to cope with a family tragedy just months before I am set to marry. With courage, humor, and my family’s love, I overcame the shame, handicaps, and personal losses that might’ve defeated others less resolute. I currently update my own blog and would love if you could check out my postings at KarlSchonborn.com. It’d be great to connect on twitter (@KarlSchonborn) and Facebook (Facebook.com/CleftHeartChasingNormal). I am always looking for new people to follow! Thanks for your time and for the great posts on your site.
