About Me

I'm MaryTara (MT) :) Hi!

A bit about me:
Well, I have 2 awesome children who keep me quite busy. My son has Autism and you can mostly find me blogging about him at The Bon Bon Gazette. In late February 2009 I found out that my daughter, Belle, has Amblyopia.

So, I started this blog, Amblyopia Kids: Adventures in Amblyopia in order to chronicle her journey in entirety. From diagnosis to hopefully a day when I can share that Belle has successfully regained vision. I'm committed to sharing the highs, the lows, and everyplace in between. You'll find photos, product reviews, cries for help, resource links, and hopefully helpful advice too.

I welcome comments on my posts, please don't be shy!

Product Reviews:
I love to try out and review products - If you make or sell a product that is related to Amblyopia (like eye patches, children's books, videos, etc) Please contact me. I have a longstanding history of product reviews with other 800 products reviewed at Epinions.com where I am the Category Lead for the Kids and Family category. My Epinions profile is here.
