Welcome to the August 3, 2009 edition of modern families. Sorry for the delay for this edition, but due to moving last week, I have been without an Internet connection. I hope you enjoy reading our submissions and look forward to hearing from you next month.



Health & Fitness

  • Doug Boude presents Assurant Health Denies Coverage Because Young Man is Autistic posted at Doug Boude (rhymes with ‘loud’), saying, “This post is an account of my attempt to acquire medical benefits for my oldest son, who is autistic. After having been summarily denied simply because my son is non-verbal, I wrote this post in an effort to share my heart-break at having been turned away and to bring to light what I consider to be discriminatory practices against autism.”

Money & Finances

  • Dan Miller presents Student Loan posted at Student Consolidation, saying, “Student loan consolidation is a great way to get a lower interest rate, as a reputable consolidation company will buy each loan off of the original lenders, lump it into one loan and offer lower interest and even deferment plans. Consolidate student loans to get them paid off more quickly with financial advice from a guidance counselor in this free video on student loans”


  • Kellen Von Houser presents He is Homicidal and Suicidal… posted at Kellevision, saying, “Trying to be a good parent to an abused child can be an absolute battle against the mental health and legal systems – while the child’s well being hangs in the balance.”



That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of modern families using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
