IAM is a group of Moms and Dads from Bainbridge Island, Washington, coming together to focus on hope, inspiration, perseverance, and support towards progress and recovery of our children with Autism.
Our group was formed in October 2007. We meet once a month to talk, listen, learn, laugh and nurture hope.
