  1. Hi Heather and Dave!
    You guys recently followed @autisminlove on Twitter and I noticed you guys do these amazing podcasts. Our documentary is months away from being finished, but I am wondering if there is any interest in us doing a podcast to talk about the process of making a documentary in the next few months?

    Please let me know! Keep up the great work…


  2. Hi Heather and Dave,
    Thank you for being such strong advocates of people with autism. I have a son and daughter with autism. They are grown now but I really appreciate everything you are doing. Your good heart and creating awareness of autism is appreciated. I really enjoyed the song too. It brought tears to my eyes and great memories of the great years I shared with my kids when they were little and the many years to come and see them as adults is exciting. Thank you again. Have a blessed month. Sincerely, Alina Ward
