"It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness 2nd Annual Blog Hop


Hello Blogging Friends!!


Welcome to the "It's A Girl Thing" Turner Syndrome Awareness 2nd Annual Blog Hop!!


We are all so happy that you have joined us today!  Please leave some love for the Awesome Card Designers!!  And be sure to go to the Sponsors On-line Stores!!


Turner Syndrome is a genetic disorder where a female is born with only one X chromosome, instead of two, leaving her with life-long medical issues and learning disabilities. This condition occurs one in 2,500 female births worldwide, but is more common among pregnancies that do not survive to full term. That is why Turner Syndrome Females are considered MIRACLES!





You can read about our Journey with TS if you click on the tab above that says Lori & Julie's Turner Syndrome Journey



Prize Winners will be announced on February 15, 2020 on this blog.


Thirty-six caring Sponsors and nine DT Members are offering prizes to commenters and they are helping bring Turner Syndrome Awareness to the Public. For details on how you might win any of these fabulous prizes, please see Lori's TS home page. Thanks for learning About Turner Syndrome

  4. We hope this will bring an awareness not only about Turner Syndrome in females, but that if any human being seems a bit out of the ordinary, there could be a health-related or genetic reason for it, and it would be nice to give everyone the benefit of the doubt in our daily lives.

Winners will be announced on February 15, 2020

  5. It's a pleasure to be a part of this blog hop Lori. It is necessary to publicize Turner syndrome so that the girls who suffer from it can lead a better life.
    Big hugs!

  6. I had never heard of Turner Syndrome until just now and I thank you for sharing your story and spreading awareness. My daughter was 25 weeks along when she developed pre-eclampsia and had to have an emergency c-section. Our little grandson Jackson was born weighing one pound and one ounce. Sadly, he only lived for 5 days so to see that your beautiful little Julie is thriving is truly a miracle. I'd love to join you in your next blog hop to help raise awareness.

  7. Hey, y'all. I'm here in spirit celebrating and learning more about Turner Syndrome. One thing I learned was about the lack of estrogen. Oh goodness, I told someone earlier that little girls shouldn't have to worry about their bones at such a young age. I hope the hop is successful and thank you for putting so much in to it. Big hugs, [Bunny]

  8. I am so glad you asked me to be a part of this! I had never heard of Turner Syndrome before you started this hop. And thanks for all of the information you provide to educate people about the genetic disorder. I'm sure there are so many families out there who are struggling and maybe don't even know this is something that has affected them. The fact that only 2% of infants with the disorder survive past birth.. and those that survive can suffer from so many different things. I'm happy to be a part of this wonderful hop!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I heard of Turner Syndrome before the hop, only because I read there was an upcoming hop on someone's blog, but I still didn't know what it was. I found your About page very informative. I was surprised to learn that the average age of diagnosis is 9+ and that some are not diagnosed until adults. And even more shocking is that only 2% of babies conceived with Turner Syndome survive to birth. Thank you for bringing this disease to light. I would like to support this hop and plan to hop around to see everyone's projects.

  10. Hi Lori, it is indeed a pleasure to be part of this blog hop. It is important to spread the word for these girls.

  11. I first heard about TS during last year's hop and am glad you are back to spread the word again this year. As an elementary teacher, I value the information shared about TS and visual-spatial struggles, realizing that this could affect learning. Thank you for sharing information potentially helpful in the education field and for the joy of seeing these little miracles.

  14. This is the first time I have heard of this. Your page explains TS so well and gives so much information. Thank you for sharing this and spreading the information through this blog hop. I hope everyone will share so we can all become aware of this disease. I've learned about all the health things girls can suffer with this syndrome and only two percent survive after birth. Bless you and your family and all who have this.

  15. I"m honored to be a part of this wonderful blog hop. Thank you!

  16. Knowing that such fetuses don't survive till full term is painful, definitely the ones affected are warriors!! Thanks for creating awareness

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great way to make the Awareness for Turner Syndrome be known, learned something new today about TS!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you for helping to get the word out about Turner Syndrome with this blog hop. I didn't realize that girls with TS had a greater risk of cirosis of the liver and bicuspid valve in the heart.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Julie and Lori, I'm honored to be apart of this wonderful blog hop with you to help bring awareness! Thank you for teaching us about TS my friend! HUGS

  20. So wonderful of you to spread the awareness of Turner Syndrome in this way. I was so surprised at how many other diseases can develop from having it too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I had heard of Turner Syndrome but didn't know how common it is. I learned that TS can result in a higher number of autoimmune disorders. Thank you for spreading awareness of this condition that only affects females

    ReplyDelete
  22. Turner's syndrome has such a wide range of effects, and such a profound effect of the girl's life. Thanks for your part in making us aware!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I was introduced to Turner's Syndrome in last year's blog hop. I forgot how extensive the potential medical issues were - wow! Thanks for bringing more awareness!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I work in the medical field and will be honest, I'd never heard of this syndrome. Such a painful thing for a young girl to have to live with. Thank you for bringing awareness to this with this hop!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am HONORED to be a part of this awareness Blog Hop for Turner Syndrome. I was unaware of the magnitude of potential medical issues connected with it. Thank you Julie and Lori for bringing the awareness blog Hop to us. I enjoyed being a part of the efforts!
    Hugs,

  26. I am also honored to be a part of this blog hop. I had never heard of TS until being on a team with Lori. Thanks for bringing much needed attention to this issue.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I saw this cause and blog hop over at Vicki's blog.
    Its great cause and great blog hop so we can learn more about turner syndrome.
    I learned that Turner syndrome is a genetic condition in which a female is partly or completely missing an X chromosome.
    Turner syndrome occurs in between one in 2,000 and one in 5,000 females at birth.
    Im glad that I saw this blog hop so I learn more.
    I just visit all in the hop and they made gorgeous projects!

  28. Thanks for raising awareness about this awful disease - I was shocked to learn that 99% of babies with Turners do not survive to birth !!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I commented on another site i think twice, sorry think I messed up.
    This is a great cause. I have heard of Turners syndrome. Female infants are born with a missing X chromosome and it results in multiple medical conditions such as: diabetes, anemia and pain

    ReplyDelete
  30. Last year was the first time I heard about this. I had no idea that this happens. THe medical conditions are heartbreaking. Thank you for raising awareness.

    ReplyDelete
  31. A privilege and honored to be a part of this Awareness blog hop. Thanks for being here again for the 2nd year. Again, Thanks for bringing much needed attention to this issue.
    Many hugs and blessings

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you LORI and JULIE for doing this! So honored to have made a card for the hop this year! I am so glad to be part of bringing awareness to it! I had never heard of Turner Syndrome before you started this hop. Educating people is key. The fact that only 2% of infants with the disorder survive past birth is awful and those that survive can suffer from so many other things UGH.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thank you Lori for asking me to take part in this blog hop. I had never heard of TS or you or Julie and I have learned so much it's crazy. Who knew that missing one chromosome could have such an effect on a girl's body!! Glad I can help in some way and I hope this brings a lot of awareness of TS to the masses!

    ReplyDelete
  34. this disease is awful - the little babies that survive birth are true miracles:)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi there :) You two are a brave duo!!! I knew nothing about Turner Syndrome until you educated me today! Wow!!! It's amazing how missing such a small part of our body can do! I think it's awesome how you've allowed God, from the beginning, to educate the general population about TS through you and your story :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Great hop, and thanks so much for letting me participate. It's wonderful for you to do this hop to bring awareness to Turner Syndrome.

    ReplyDelete
  37. # 26 made a beautiful card but I was not able to find her page to tell her so. I hope she reads this post and sees that I did love it. I know I posted before but this was the only way I could see how to let her know I appreciated her efforts.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I had no idea the ratio was so low for surviving babies. Indeed, Miracles.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I learned that females with TS are more likely to have autoimmune diseases. Thanks for sharing the information on TS through your blog hop.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I had not heard of Turner Syndrome prior to this hop, and I am astonished to learn that 99% of conceptions with Turner Syndrome do not survive to birth. Thank you for raising awareness of this devastating condition.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Prior to joining a DT with Lori I had no idea about TS and my mind was blown by all the potential complications these girls have to face. As someone challenged with an autoimmune disease, I know there is not a single form of AI disease that is easy to contend with. That alone is more than anyone should bear, but its just one of many these very special girls and women might end up dealing with.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you for inviting me to be part of this awareness blog hop. Thank you for all your work organising this. I didn't know anything about Turner Syndrome before, thank you for letting us know all about it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you for participating in the TS hop to spread awareness about this condition. I didn't realize there were so many autoimmune complications that can result from Turner Syndrome

    ReplyDelete
  44. I had heard about TS from last years hop, but the number of other physiological conditions associated with it is daunting to say the least! my heart goes out to the families living with these precious girls.
    Blessings

  45. Hi Lori, so wonderful you are raising awareness again this year and am sorry I was not able to take part but super pleased it is going ahead. I hadn't realised that this lowered your immune system-so another fact learned-thanks you x

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congrats on your second year publisising this important issue. So many challenges faced by these girls. Didn't realise how many die so young. Heartbreaking. Hugz

    ReplyDelete
  47. A great hop to spread the world about the Turner Syndrome! I known about it just last year as my first time and I was so impressed, as I'm still now.
    How many symptoms and complications! And how many not born or young died baby girls So so sad :(

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have family members with little known medical issues. It is such a shame there isnt bottomless piles of money for research for ALL things. sigh.
    Thank you for stepping up to promote this issue. I did not know how few survive to birth or about the issue at all. My deepest wishes for your family to live in the best way possible and it looks like you do! Very cool on the events you attend!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I didn't realize that Linda Hunt had TS. I love your blog hop and the education you are providing.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I learned that girls born with TS are true miracles!

    ReplyDelete
  51. What an amazing outpouring of love from the administrators and designers for the Blog Hop. So glad that you have educated us on the awareness of Turner Syndrome. Before being involved in this blog hop I had no idea of the many effects the syndrome can have on our precious girls.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have never heard of Turner Syndrome, so I learned a lot including that it caused by a missing or partially missing X chromosome which has life-long implications including slower growth patterns, heart issues, and so many more. Thanks for having this hop to help educated more people of this serious condition for girls.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hello crafters;
    I honestly was not even aware of TSSyndrome until following this blog hop sooooo I learned right away that it is a genetic disorder for females only. Having had a very difficult delivery and a baby born with a rare disorder -hypercalcemia- it is overwhelming as a new parent facing parenthood- I’m glad to spread more awareness!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I had no idea that Turners Syndrome only affects girls, but after reading about it I understand why. Thanks for helping us learn more about this syndrome and the many health problems that can go with it

    ReplyDelete
  55. I didn't know those with Turner Syndrome were more likely to get auto immune diseases. I have those myself, so don't wish them on anyone!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I learned about the positive connection between IB disease and TS. I am going to check it out for our daughter....

    ReplyDelete
  57. Thank you for bringing light to Turner Syndrome as passing on information learned is the best key to awareness! I learned that connection between celiac disease and TS is not coincidental - and I just learned about celiac last week when my daughter was tested for Graves Disease (thyroid). Love the inspiration from all - keep on hugging and teaching!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks so much for letting me be part of another amazing blog hop - it's great to be involved in spreading information about Turner Syndrome. It's so important to realise that it impacts on so many different areas of life and the huge effect it can have on lives.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Firstly I'd like to say a very big THANK YOU for bring this awful Turner Syndrome to light.
    Secondly I'd like to THANK YOU for putting this blog hop on to bring awareness to us.
    I hadn't heard of this before and I have now learnt quite a bit from you, especially about not having the 2 X chromosome's. Also the IBS, I've suffered from thos for years and I know what pain you get with it when we have a flare up, (wouldn't wish it on anyone) I was shocked when I saw 99% of children that was born with this awful condition didn't make it. Absolutely so so sad.
    I hope by just sharing your details it helps just a little but. Xxxx

  60. Thank YOU so much for bringing this awareness of Turner Syndrome to our attention and thank you for letting me be a part of it again this year...you have done a fabulous job of teaching us all...and thanks for all the work you have done to create the hop!!

Thank you so much for such a wonderful initiative...honestly I did not know about this till today...got to know so much about Turner Syndrome...blessings to all those miracle girls born with TS...I am surprised to know that only 2% of babies born with TS survive to birth..Thanks Lori and Donna for all the efforts!!

  63. First time using a Blog and accidentally deleted my first comment. Today is the first time I have ever heard of Turner's syndrome. I was surprised to learn how much this affects women and their autoimmune system. I am so glad that this blog is bringing awareness to all of us.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I had never heard of Turner Syndrome until this blog hop. Thank you Lori for bringing it to my attention. It is sad that so many with it don't make it to birth. Your beautiful daughter is a miracle and I hop this hop helps bring more awareness to help her and others like her to continue to have the best life possible.

    1. I didn't realize the ratio for Turner Syndrome possibilities. Are parents informed if their baby not carried to term has the syndrome?

  66. I have to be honest and say i had never heard of Turner Syndrome prior to this blog hop. I have seen a few of y craft friend mention it and a blog post from Becky's Place brought me here.

    I read about your continuing fight for Julie. What a lucky lady she is to have you as her Mum. I am sure it has been a hard road for you and your family but she is very fortunate to have been brought into an amazing family. Your story brought me to tears. Thank you for making me aware of Turner Syndrome, I have definitely learnt a lot about something I didn't know about previously.

  67. I never heard of TS before until this blog hop. I'm glad to be apart of this hop.

  68. Thank You Lori for making everyone aware about this syndrome. I learnt a lot about it during your last blog hop. I am so happy you are doing it again. I believe, everyone should be aware about this and they should know that every Turner girl is a miracle. sending hugsxx

  69. I learnt a lot last year with your blog hop..I didn't know those with Turner Syndrome were more likely to get auto immune diseases. Thank you for spreading the words. Hugsxx

  70. Awesome blog hop for a worthy cause. I had never heard of Turner Syndrome before, so everything I learned was new information. I was especially shocked by the 10 month growth hormone info. Thanks for spreading the word on this condition and prayerfully, a cure/treatment will be found soon.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Until your hop last year, I had never heard of Turner Syndrome. I have learned so much, and was saddened by what I read. Thank goodness for folks like you that fight for a cure, and spread the word about this condition. Thank you for sharing your beautiful girl with us this month!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I only heard about Turner Syndrome last year during this blog hop, so I really don't know much about it. But as I see, it can affect so many (probably all) areas of the woman's life, even affecting their normal everyday health. Thank you for doing what you can to raise awareness.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi! I have a daughter with autism, so I know how importent awareness are. I've heard about TS, but did not know abt. the arthritis and bowel problems. I'm so glad I found you, Thank you for bringing awareness to TS. Have a blessed day.

  74. Thank you so much for sharing. I hope more people visit your blog to learn about Turner Syndrome. Well done.

  76. I heard about Turner Syndrome from the awareness blog hop last year and appreciate the opportunity to learn more and spread the word too. I am grateful that you and Julie have shared your knowledge and experiences with us. There are so many aspects to this genetic disorder that it is almost overwhelming, especially when we remember that less than 2% of babies conceived survive to birth, precious girls that face the challenges each day with their families. It is amazing how illness and adversity brings out the best in people. Thank You for sharing, my heart is with you and all your family Lori!

  79. I remember finding out about Turner Syndrome last year on this hop. I am still amazed at how many medical conditions are associated with TS. I learned that visual-spatial defects can lead to learning difficulties in mathematics, driving and directions and that there are an estimated 80,000 girls/young women with TS in the US.
    Thanks for making awareness about TS possible, as this syndrome could become a reality to any family, at any time. Blessings to you and your family!

  80. I was delighted to e part of a hop that raises awareness so that more people will know about it

    ReplyDelete
  81. I'm so happy I joined this hop this year. Before talking to Lori, I had no idea what TS was. Now I've learnt a lot about it like all the likely diseases that TS girls are prone to live with. It still boggles the mind that so little research is being done, so I'm thrilled at the chance of being able to spread awareness of TS. Thanks for sharing and for allowing me to participate.
    Hugs,

  82. Thanks for bringing awareness to this syndrome. I learned that the girls/women have a higher risk of inflammatory bowel disease and hypertension.

  84. Hi, Lori.....Thank you so much for hostessing this important hop again! I wish I had been able to be a part of of it, but at least I am getting to participate (even though it is the last day!!!) Although I hopped along last year, I had forgotten that 99% of conceptions with Turner Syndrome do not survive until birth. Wow...these precious Turner Syndrome gals really are miracles!! Many blessings to you and your beautiful daughter!!!
