What I Am Thankful For

By Lisa Ackerman

I LOVE this time of the year! It is my favorite time where I get to show gratitude.  It is a great opportunity to say thank you to many important people in our lives.

It is important to say THANK YOU to some pretty great people:

–          Thank you to our TACA volunteers and staff. You are incredible and tireless, always looking to help others learn more about autism and spread our message of hope. These super heroes truly are the autism community in action!

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

–          Last but not least I would love to thank you to OUR SUPPORTERS! 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.

Then we have more gratitude to share. This gratitude is with our stars:  the families TACA serves 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 continue to strive for the best possible outcomes for your children. Thank you for working so hard.

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:
