It has been too long

A lot has changed since I have last posted. Sometimes, life gets crazy, and things take a back seat. I promise to not allow that to happen again.

This cause is too important, the impact is too great.

Since my last post, I have accepted a job in Cleveland with the arena football team. I am very excited to be a part of such a great organization, to rebuild a popular brand in a town that loves football.

I have now been here for three weeks, and my family has yet to join me. It is the longest that we have ever been apart, and it is putting a lot of stress on our family - and the children.

We are also leaving behind a wonderful autism society in southeastern Wisconsin, and great schools.

What I have found in my short time in Cleveland, is amazing people - an Autism chapter at both the State and local level that is unbelievable. I am excited to extend my voice to help them raise funds, awareness and help treat children who desperately need it, and provide resources to families who are affected each day.

I have had the opportunity to already interact with the people in Ohio, and their quick action in turning around a meeting with me was more than impressive. I am excited to work with them going forward.

The next step is finding a home for our family in a school district that will take care of the needs of our children. This has been one of the most difficult assignments I have ever undertaken, not to mention I want to make it happen fast - I miss my family.

I will be posting more often - I am going to try once a week. We are going to do some good in Ohio, and I can't wait to get started!

  1. This is great! I was really hoping that you would begin writing again once you settled in. Can't wait to hear more. Good luck with all that you are doing at once. A goal to post weekly is good. It doesn't seem like much but each post adds up and tells a wonderful story when all put together. It has been about a year since I began our blog and I have enjoyed going back and reading from the beginning.
