Happy 5th Birthday, Autism Empowerment!

Autism Empowerment, the Vancouver, WA-based non-profit organization that I work with, turns five this month. Happy birthday, AE!
In the strange and beautiful way that the universe works, Autism Empowerment was born right around the same time that Book One was, making them peers and classmates for life (I guess they would both be starting kindergarten this fall). Yes, Book One wasn't published as such until 2012, but if you recall, the first draft was completed at the end of April 2011, just two months before the founding of AE. Coincidence? More like serendipity, I think.

As I've mentioned in this space before, I'm really happy and grateful for the relationship I've had with AE and its parents, John and Karen Krejcha, over these past five years. Joel, Felicity, and the whole Spectraland Saga wouldn't be where they are today without the help of these wonderful people. So here's to many more awesome birthdays to come!

  1. Definitely serendipity! Thank you so much for the shout out, the years of support and all your patience reading through long emails and Board reports! You rock, Brian (pun intended)! :-)
