Happy Anniversary and Birthday, Honey!

Dear Ed,

You are the man of my dreams and the best father and stepfather in the whole wide world. How blessed we all are. Positive dreams and thoughts and wishes can really come true. Thank you for believing in our boys and respecting them for the wonderful people they are. The boys and I are so fortunate to be able to share life with you. Thank you for your love and creativity and for all you do for us and so many others.

Happy anniversary and birthday, Honey.

THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT: A Tribute to JoAnne Pike - by Lori McIlwain

From Lori McIlwain, National Autism Association

A Tribute to JoAnne Pike

I believe that to be a leader, you must have more hope in your heart than fear. Fear won’t allow you to take a stand without reluctance, or speak without anticipated rejection. It won’t give you an original point of view, or allow you to remain unapologetic. It will only make you believe that change is too difficult, and that no human life is valuable enough to initiate it.

Jo Pike never had fear in her heart, only hope.

Check out Polly Tommey's Autism Awareness Campaign 2010 on Facebook and follow Polly on Twitter

From Polly: The 'Hello Boys' billboards go up on Monday (actually they are digital, so I imagine a button is just pushed) The 'Boys' are Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Nick Clegg. Since The News of The World released the image it has already become 'of interest' to the press. We are firmly sticking to Monday as the launch day and I am on GMTV that morning and LK Today. As far as our 3 Boys go, they have all had letters explaining the campaign and what we are expecting from them. People are sending to what they would have to do to win our autism vote.
