What am I thankful for?

grateful here

By Lisa Ackerman

During this time of the year you see a lot of people sharing what they are thankful for. I am no different. I like that this time of the year gives you an opportunity to say thank you to many important people in our lives:

–          Thank you to our TACA chapters, volunteers and staff. You are incredible and tireless, always looking to help others learn more about autism and spread our message of hope.

–          I am grateful for our TACA Board and their incredible support and deep compassion for the organization’s mission.

–          Kudos to our TACA friends: The ambassadors that help us with our mission and the vendors who serve our families. A big word of thanks to the doctors and researchers for helping our kids.

–          Without TACA donors, we would be lost. This is a giving group of friends that are driven to keep TACA here as long as we are needed.  Saying thank you is not big enough.

Our stars are the families and their children. Thank you so much for caring, driving answers and sharing your stories of healing and treatment (1.)  I am in awe of your strength and courage to fight battles, odds and status quo for your kids.

At TACA, our focus is for families living with autism today, not tomorrow. Tools that help, guidance that leads to answers and a community that helps you navigate the journey with a multitude of caring families like yours.  Nothing else matters at TACA.

As a reminder, we have two tools that will help you survive and succeed this holiday season:

Lastly, I must thank my family for always being by my side. I am the luckiest wife, mom, sister and daughter in the world.  Words will never describe my gratitude to you.   Happy Thanksgiving!
