As I prepare to create the November/December issue of the MAR, I have mixed emotions. After 7 years of producing a parent-led magazine to connect and inform the autism community, I am taking a rest from publishing. This upcoming issue will be our "farewell edition". We are taking a break, resting my painful, arthritic hands, and trying to make some preparations for retirement. Originally this WAS my retirement plan, but though it was a great "ministry", it never grew to the p...lace it needed to be, financially. We will still be publishing a TRANSITIONS issue in January, and the magazine archives will be available for at least a year, through the MAR website at www.moautismreport.com. In the mean-time, I will be re-evaluating, resting and completing some much-needed schooling, in preparation for what comes next.
If you would like to send a farewell message or photo, a memory or that story you never sent, please do so by the end of this week, as I have already begun publication on the November/December issue.
This is also the last issue with events, so be sure to send those, as well.
It has been a great 7 years, and the friends I have made will be "forever" friends. Now, I'm going to go make a magazine! Send all your correspondence to email@example.com, for the November/December 2017 Farewell Edition of the MAR.
