New catagory for special needs...heard back from cafemom admin - they said no

just thought all that have been asking for this should know what i heard back (after writing them and kept writing them, until they gave me an answer, not just a thank you for your suggestion)

cafe mom admin said NO
very dissappointing!

but 'Buy a Home' catagory is very important too (sarcasm inserted here)

  • I'm so sorry. I've been blessed enough to not have a special needs child (knock on wood) but I cant imagine CM NOT understanding your request. I'd sign a petition for you!!! I'm so sorry. You have my support in any way I can help!

  • I say let's all band together and continue to ask. Even though they have already said no, if we continue to ask, maybe they will give in.

  • Wow....buying a home gets its own category, but special needs children can't.........and they are in abundance here....certainly enough to have its own category. I don't get the admin here.

  • that's unfair! maybe if enough people got together, they would reconsider. Maybe post it as a question, have everyone who is in favor answer and bump then show admin that their members want this category. and you are right, its far more important than buying a house. Seems kind of shallow for them to just shut down the suggestion that way.

  • I'm sorry *hugs* I definitely think a special needs group would be super beneficial here. Hopefully they change their mind....

  • Bad call cafemom, I think a special needs area would be used a lot.

  • I don't understand the buying your own home category, honestly I've NEVER seen anyone ask for such a category until I noticed the new category..
    the military one I agree with though
