WELCOME TO HOLLAND was written by Emily Perl Kingsley. It is located on the HOME page of this website. Read that to understand why I named my project Letters From Holland.
What are letters from Holland? They are letters or messages that parents of children with special needs or a diagnosis of some sort. It could be ADHD, Cancer, Autism, OCD, ODD…anything.
In these letters, parents share their experiences. They share what life is like for them. They show other people they aren’t alone. I’ll be photographing one child a month and sharing their story.
I am also accepting other photographer’s submissions. Photographers may send me photographs and have their clients fill out a letter for the blog.
People who just want to write a letter for the blog, can submit a letter.
I started Letters From Holland a few years ago, but took a little break. However, it’s never really left my mind. I want to share the stories of parents who might have gone through similar experiences or maybe new parents are just starting their journey. One of the best things for me was learning I wasn’t alone. Hearing from people with similar situations help me.
A parent shared a story by Emily Perl Kingsley. I could relate. I wasn’t alone. This is where the idea of Holland came about and where I got the idea to share stories of parents and their lives in “Holland.”
