    Congratulations on your nomination for the Global EBook Award in regards to your Different Is Beautiful book.

    While looking up a phrase on Google I came across your blog. At this point I don’t even remember what I was searching for. When I saw the photo of your illustrator, Anja Gruber, holding Different Is Beautiful, I gasped “OMG! Is that our Anja? It sure looks like our Anja of years gone by.”

    In 1980 my ex-husband, toddler son, and I opened our home in Southern California to an exchange student, Anja Gruber, from Germany. She was a young woman determined to become an astrophysicist. While lost in thought I remembered Anja had done several pencil sketches during her visit and gifted us with an amazing sketch of our son.

    So…I was wondering if your Anja is the same Anja I met many years ago. It’s a long shot, but I had to ask. Even if these ladies are not the same person, I discovered your Different Is Beautiful. It sounds like a perfect gift for the grandchildren.

    Once again, congratulations on your nomination and thank you for taking the time to read this comment.

      Hi Yvonne,
      yes, I am your Anja 🙂 Life has done some strange turns, I couldn’t believe it when Sherri sent me your comment. I’m thinking of those stays fondly.Do you have the time or inclination to get into contact again? I have to say I’m still mostly analog, no member in any social network, just email and real mail.
