I would like to thank each and every one of you for making this dream, A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back to Autism (a.k.a The Sunhine Boy), come true. With warmest gratitude I would like to thank the first lady of Iceland, Dorrit Moussaieff, who is the patron of our project and guided our mission. I would also like to thank all of the well-wishers who believed in this project from the beginning and helped me lay the foundation. Thank you to all of the participants in our film who shared with us their expertise and did everything they could to assist us. And last but not least, thank you to the sponsors, including those proactive companies who shared our ambition to spread the awareness, It is all of you who made it possible to implement this vision and make it a reality. Your support has been a source of motivation and inspiration to me.
It is my sincere wish and desire that this film will make a difference for the autistic community. What a wonderful world it is when people join forces for the greater good of those in need. I believe if we all continue to work together and share the same vision and commitment, we can bring more sun into our lives and to the lives of all those around us. Together we can give these children a voice and life of their own so they can prosper and shine.
