Have you done any more poetry writing or reading since the event you wrote about? I love your concept of
the Stutter Buddy. I wonder how are speech would be different if we had had that when we were younger?

Bonnie -- 

Great article!!! I'm sure that it will inspire a lot of young people. First person accounts like these -- yours
and the story you quote -- are the best teaching tools there are. Regards, John H.

Bonnie 

Beautiful story. You know how strongly I feel regardign the need for support for children and their families.
I am so glad that we have you on our side, we will all benefit. There are so many children and families out
their continuing to feel isolated. If we all work together (FRIENDS, NSP, CAPS) we may be able to reach
out to more children...I certainly hope so. Thanks for all you do.

Hi Lee... I hope that you know that you and your family were the ones I was talking about when I
mentioned my first convention. I still think about that. I did not expect that there would be parents and
children at that convention. Your openness about your son's stuttering inspired me.

Loved your paper, what a great idea! How did you obtain funding for Stutter Buddies?

Hi Shelli and Kris... All of the funding for Stutter Buddies have come from donations. Interestingly
enough, the first three issues were paid from an account set up by our chapter when my mother passed
away. Donations to NSP/Buffalo Chapter in her memory were used for the first three issues. The Board of
Directors of the NSP thought that this was such a good idea that they have agreed to donate some monies for
four issues...our current one and three more. 

We have also recieved some small donations from SLPs in the area. 

After that, who knows? We may have to have some serious cookie sales!! :-) 

Good to hear from you. Has Judy showed you Stutter Buddies???

I haven't shared Stutter Buddies, Letting Go, Speaking Out, Reaching Out, etc. with the class yet 'cuz we
are just finishing up the section on "assessment." At the end of the class we will be talking about support
organizations for kids and adults who stutter. Thanks for reminding me to pass around some of the
newsletters. Great idea! Judy

Thanks for reminding me that support groups for children are essential as they are for adults and teens. The
stutter buddies idea is one I'll keep in mind.

Hi... I am doing something wrong, I think. I responded to you yesterday but it didn't show up on my
"page". If you are interested, I can send you the first three issues of Stutter Buddies. All I need is your
address.
