A Ripple Effect

A Ripple Effect:
ripple effect is a situation where an effect from an initial state can be followed outwards incrementally

This is truly the Perfect illustration of what I wanted to share. 
Sometimes you just wonder if anyone cares or listens to what you say, then that person you never thought was listening cares, then starts the Ripple Effect. I have had several of those happen this year & it always makes my day to hear another of my friends supporting this passion I love.
Here's my Ripple I shared who now has a Christmas warrior who just so happens to be my friend!
Haisten, has no photo that can be shared publicly which makes sharing sometimes difficult but he still needs someone to shout for him so I knew without a doubt he came first for me to find a warrior for. I had him last year, I knew how hard it was but for some reason now I know was God I chose not to be his warrior. 
See if I had not decided to be a warrior, or for another reason this ripple would not have happened. Will you be someones ripple effect today?
I'm sharing Emmaline, now who still needs a warrior too! What ripple effect will start next? Signup to be a warrior today!

Another ripple you can be a part of, Julia who was part of the reason I started blogging/advocating is adding some pink into her family! I met Julia & her son Aaron this past July at the Reece's Rainbow Reunion.
She truly is as sweet as she is online & Aaron is simply inspiring! Help this mama who has helped so many others while she waited to adopt again who is getting to add their first girl in the family! Meet Harper,
Let's get a ripple going for this sweet soul who needs a reason to smile!

A Little bit of everything update

I have not been really into blogging much or when I have something to say I have posted it on facebook since most rarely have time to read blogs & it's just easier to do so there. So not much is new, I still have some unfinished posts waiting in my draft folder but still need to edit the photos for those posts. Anyway as you well know October is National Down Syndrome Awareness Month & I know I have been slacking on stuff but here is a photo of my sister who just happens to have that extra chromosome.
She is pretty awesome & it is a rare thing for her to be willing to take a picture with me.
Advocating continues on, first I'm happy to share that "Maria" now Allie is home with her family!
Angel Tree is fast approaching & thing is 97 kids are still waiting for someone to signup as their warrior! If they don't have a warrior by Oct 28th they won't be included on this years Angel Tree! Sadly no doubling up this time. This girl is praying & refuses to let that happen so first thing is first. My Angel Tree child from last year has no warrior & I'm gonna cry if he won't be on there. I know he has no photo but If I managed to help him last year without one then you can too! I'M BEGGING SOMEONE TO STEP UP AS WARRIOR FOR HAISTEN!!! Just signup & to learn more information
Here's the other kids who still need a warrior

I kinda mentioned above that Haisten was my Angel Tree child last year so why did I not pick him this year? I just felt like I was not meant to be his warrior this time. I still love him & want him to find a family but I just was not feeling lead for some reason. So who did I pick? After the boy I wanted already had a warrior I really had a hard time choosing but I chose Sasha who is about the same age as when I first started advocating for my girls. 
She has captured my heart strings & I'm so stoked to be her Angel Tree Warrior!
