Thank You!

We owe huge thanks to all of our contributors. We know that you pour your hearts and souls into the stories and poems that you share with us, and ultimately with each other. We appreciate your willingness to open up your lives to other Chicken Soup readers.

We can only publish a small percentage of the stories that are submitted, but we read every single one and even the ones that do not appear in the book have an influence on us and on the final manuscript.

We also want to thank our Publisher and mentor, Amy Newmark, who edited every story and helped us shape this manuscript, D’ette Corona, our Assistant Publisher, who is the heart and soul of the Chicken Soup for the Soul publishing operation, and Barbara LoMonaco, our Webmaster and Chicken Soup for the Soul Editor, for invaluable assistance in maintaining our story database and proofreading this manuscript. We would also like to thank Chicken Soup for the Soul editor Kristiana Glavin for assistance with the final manuscript and proofreading, and Leigh Holmes, who keeps our Connecticut office running smoothly.

We owe a very special thanks to our Creative Director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for his brilliant vision for our covers and interiors. Finally, none of this would be possible without the business and creative leadership of our CEO, Bill Rouhana, and our president, Bob Jacobs.
