About Us - The Story Behind the Book

We had a dream, to make the world of PD better through creative advocacy.

We incorporated PCC as a 501(c)(3) non-profit and created the book. As volunteers, we eliminated the geographic distance from San Diego, California to Birmingham, UK by meeting frequently on Skype. We developed friendships while editing and working. We sought and received grants from family foundations to provide free copies to many PD support group leaders.

We’ve learned much on this journey from dream to book and now we have ‘collective’ PD wisdom. As Paula Wittekind, a founding member said, “Time is not neutral for us.”
