A Very Unexpected Blessing for "Broken Pieces"
Some of you may or may not know, but last year, I became a volunteer regional ambassador for the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse (NAASCA). When I have speaking engagements and educate groups on abuse, I do refer to NAASCA as well as another awesome organization that advocates on behalf of children. A little more than two and half years ago, I was on a survivor panel for a televised news segment in Washington, D.C. I met an awesome activist during that panel. She introduced me to NAASCA. As we spoke over time, I shared that I was writing Broken Pieces. I learned that NAASCA understood and also advocated ALL forms of abuse, including what Broken Pieces covers. After Wednesday's notification email went out and yesterday, I was blessed to the point of tears. My fellow NAASCA family member responded to say she wanted to support. I thank GOD for divine connections, people and organizations that understand what it is the team seeks to do regarding Broken Pieces. So I thank you immensely ProTek Professional Technologies Consulting, Inc. for becoming a silver sponsor!
I am also VERY grateful to The Capital Tailor, Inc., while in the midst of their grand opening this weekend(http://www.prnewswire.com/
