Love Ella

Love Ella is a story written by Madeleine Witham, mother of Ella. Ella was born in 1995 with a very rare syndrome known as Cornelia de Lange Syndrome, and this book tells a powerful and thought-provoking story of the journey from Ella's birthday, and the eleven years that follow. Any parent or family member, teacher or therapist of a child with special needs will be able to identify with the strong emotions illustrated in this book.

Alan Jones and Jo Traeger

Thanks to all of you for your great feedback after our TV appearance on "Sunrise" this morning. Ella was excellent and we have had a good giggle about her facial experiments on national television.
Looks like I will speak to Alan Jones on 2GB early next week so will give you more details when I get them myself.
If you tune in to FM103.2 at about 10.30 on Monday morning then I am being interviewed by Joanne Traeger.


Hope you can tune in to see Ella live on Sunrise this morning. It is an early start to be on the show at 8.15, she will not be happy about being woken up!
Will keep you updated with the Alan Jones gig, possibly Friday now.
