"Hi sweet girl, how are you?
I know I have been absent for awhile, as life has a way of getting in the way of the more enjoyable outlets in life, which is certainly the case for me these days.

This often helps broaden your audience as those guest writers spread the word to their networks. First hand accounts are often compelling to read and cathartic to the writer. You might want to see if there is a conversation about it going on on Twitter.
You should also try to write some guest posts on sites that are associated with the care of children; think, for example, of the American Association of Pediatrics. Make sure when you add a site to your blog roll that you let them know and ask them to reciprocate, if possible. Another good tool is to set up a resource page with links. Then contact those resources and let them know about your site and that you have linked to them. I hope this helps.
I wish you the best of luck on bringing this important issue to light.
